I was able to sell my Macbook Pro for a good price. So I am looking at some deals for a $1799 2.66 Quad Core Mac Pro. I can also get the 2.88 Quad Core 2010 model for $2299 through a corporate discount. Is it worth the $500 extra to get the latest model? I know the graphics card is better and the processor is a bit faster. Will I see the benefits of this in day to day tasks with programs like Aperture or Photoshop? I am a fairly light user. And I'll probably wind up putting a small SSD in whichever one I choose. Also as a side note, if you buy from an Apple authorized reseller, you can still bring the Mac Pro into an Apple Store for repairs under warranty, correct?
