    Yeah and trust me you need every single MB on cache. L2 cache is very important. I knew though they would have the 3MB cache though. Oh well.

    as mentionned in other threads (ding ding search function), it has 3MB l2 cache...but that's how the processor is made...so it's not apple, it's intel...and the difference between 3 and 4...im sure you wont see it!
