    Anyone know the major differences with them? The .1 GHz on the base model is all I can find...

    Thanks!

    Nothing through the roof.

    They are simply newer processors, a tad bit more power efficient, thus the higher clock speed.

    The graphics card is slightly faster.

    Nothing major.

    Isn't it the same processor? (i7)

    same processor family, slightly new so can be clocked slightly faster

    for $300 more i would stick with the Early 2011

    They are already so powerful that it is not significant and you will not notice a difference at all unless you were to run benchmarks otherwise it would be impossible to notice anything ever.
