    Does the 2.6 GHz Processor that is used as a Build To Order option in the new Macbook Pro have 6 MB L2 Cache?

    Or is it just the 2.5 GHz Processor that has 6MB of L2 Cache?

    Will this improve the speed of the computer significantly? What other improvement's will I see performance wise from the 17 inch Macbook Pro?

    Please let me know I need to know before ordering...

    Thanks,

    It has 6 MB.

    I have no idea if it is a significant performance boost.

    The 2.6 has 6MB of cache. You will see nominal improvements over the 2.5ghz version. There are no technical advantages to the 17" other than a higher resolution. The 2.6 upgrade is a waste of money.
