Putting a quad-core on the current mobile chips isn't worth the energy demand. Wait until the ~20nm chips.

I know it will use more power but you need that for video editing, photo shop ect. so it looks like it just lots of more waiting if nobody knows . :(. that what makes pc better at the moment because the cheaper and as well have a i7 QUAD. But i want a mac haha.

maybe in the next desktop. not in the notebooks for a while, cuz i don't think they can workout the energy efficiency yet.

When are they going to nano engineer two pounds off the thing? You can buy two 50" Panasonic Plasmas for what one 17" MBP cost, yet it weighs almost seven pounds.

I guess Foxconn can't do nano engineering yet, and Apple won't sacrifice their 60% plus profit margin.

2012 onwards. So just buy the dual core. Apple aren't stupid enough to put a 1.5ghz quad in.

Oh and you sound like you're young, like 13 as you cant spell, mentioned your father etc... I highly doubt you will even need a quad core.

^ Listen to that. It's the best advice. Really, I still don't see the point of having a quad core processor that has each of it's cores clocked up as an Intel Atom :mad:
