    Hello all please help me pull the trigger on 15" quad core macbook pro (late 2011). I just want to make sure that the only difference between the 2.4 Ghz and 2.5 Ghz model is ~ 0.1 Ghz :) I am wondering whether there is also a 6 vs 8 Mb cache difference (and even if that's true....so what.) Thanks... I am definitely one of those people that has a slight tendency to want the best currently available but I am having a hard time convincing myself to take the slightly cheaper option. Thanks again and I love this place!

    PS this has probably been asked before but could not find the relevant thread with Cache answer...

    Ant.honey is right. 8 MB cache on the 2.5GHz vs. 6MB on the 2.4GHz.

    In any case, get an SSD for your Mac. Without it's nowhere near the "best currently available."
