    Are there real significant performance differences between my MacBook Pros? I wonder if the only differences are:

    • Touch Pad
    • HD space
    • Slight Processor Speed Increase

    OR is this a new, improved Core 2 Duo? Are there other parts with increased performance that aren't listed in the summarized specs? A friend (also Apple trainer) said there's L6 cache on the new ones -- I like to know things like that.

    Thanks in advance :)

    There is no significant difference. The new pros use the Penryn chipset while yours has the Merom. The difference is minute and not worth upgrading for unless you really need a multi touch trackpad

    Thank you. I kind of feel like an idiot now. Maybe I can return it if it's unopened. I didn't compare specs before purchasing the new one :(
