    On the forum people are talking about how there will not be much of a difference between the 2.26 and 2.53 ghz models of the 13in. macbook pro's, but will it make a difference for running serato scratch and itunes at the same time (possibly safari as well)? I believe serato requires 2gb of ram and 2ghz, itunes has about 5,000 songs, safari if open will be downloading something. Will the processor speed difference matter?
    Thanks for any help

    No difference at all.

    I know people running scratch live on much older machines.

    Plus theres also no real reason to have both itunes and serato running at the same time as scratch live sources all of your music from your itunes library.

    No difference. I'm running SSL on a three-year old MacBook 2.0 GHz and it's as fast as I need it to be while I'm gigging.
