    Been searching this for awhile on the usual suspect sites... Has anyone seen any benchmarks of the new Macbooks where they compare the 2.0 and 2.4 ghz models? I was really hoping for something like Tom's Hardware where they do a number of practical tests since what I'm really interested in is things like encoding time and whatnot.

    PERFECT!

    Thank you, that was exactly what I'm looking for!

    Hmm...

    So for $250:
    - 15% faster encoding
    - Illuminated Keyboard (Wouldn't use)
    - Hard Drive upgrade (that you can get for around $90)

    Aaaaaand... That's it.

    So I think I made my choice. Once I just make sure the 2.0 ghz Macbook can play 1080P video I know what I'm getting! I'll probably just spend the saved money on a HD and RAM upgrade somewhere down the road.

    2.0 can play 1080p although I'm not sure why you'd want to - the screen is barely larger than 720p video.

    (Unless you're planning on doing video out of course!)

    Yep, I output the video. I actually mainly use 720p by far but I want it to be able to play 1080p if it had to.
