I am looking into a Macbook to replace my current 2.16GHz MBP but I have a couple questions first. 1. I use my laptop mostly for aim, internet, writing papers, and movies; although I do use Final Cut Pro and Photoshop for the occasional project. I also do some light gaming such as Civ4, WC3, AoEIII, etc. With this in mind, sounds like the 2.0Ghz Macbook might be the best fit for me but I'm wondering how much of a difference is there between 2.4GHz and 2.0GHz when it comes to heavy processing (FCP, etc). Does that extra 400MHz (and two LED bulbs ) really help? 2. At first glance, it seems that my two-year old 2.16GHz MBP might be a little faster than the 2.0GHz MB but I highly doubt it because of newer technology such as DDR3 ram and faster bus speed (Penryn), am I right? If so, how much faster can I expect the MacBook to be? 3. I plan on swapping the factory hard drive with this: WD Scorpio Black 320GB 7200rpm. It's basically just a "swap HD and reinstall Leopard" task? Any tips/suggestions? 4. I currently have a old SeeThru on my MBP and it adds quite a bit of bulk which makes it a pain for traveling / going to class. I've read decent reviews of the new Satin SeeThru, but was wondering how much bulk it really adds to the MacBook? 5. I also have an iPhone and was wondering how difficult it would be to transfer my iTunes information to the new laptop? I don't want to risk losing all my apps and data when I sync my phone with the new Macbook. Note: I won't be using migration assistant/super duper with the new laptop. I like a fresh start. 6. Has anyone have any experience with the Apple Credit Card offered by Juniper? I am considering using my Christmas money + selling the MBP + getting an Apple Credit Card. But if needed, I can save up a little longer. 7. When is the next "expected" refresh for the MacBook? I probably will wait until after MacWorld to be on the safe side, but is there a chance of a update soon? Sorry for all the questions, but I'm excited!! I cannot wait to get my hands on one of those beauties.
