I was going to buy the old 15" 2.6 but fortunately I waited. The prices of the new ones did disappoint me though. Comparing the old and new prices would mean that I have to decide if I buy the 2.4 i5 or not. I had a post on here before about the old 2.6 if it would perform ok using it for photoshop as I'm a photographer and I want to do my editing with it. Now I would like to know how the new 2.4 i5 performs comparing it with the old 2.6. If its the same of even better then my decision will be easy. Can anyone help me out here?
