    when the macbook pro hits 3.0 ghz quad core 17 inch and apple brings back the 12" form factor ultra-portable macbook I will be set for life...

    just thought Id throw that out there...

    for my recording/editing needs it will be perfect, dont really care about gaming etc.

    sigh, will probably never see the 12" form again:(

    now dont forget, once we get to nehalem the speeds will drop and performance will increase, so a 2.4 quad may be equal to the 3.0 quad penryn

    just wondering though whats so great about the 3.0 quad, why not a present day 2.4? i have a Q6600 (2.4 quad) in my vista machine and its screaming fast

    I think its not about the speed or something like that..

    They are to much bloody programmes which are not designed for quadcore.. They only use 1 or 2.. If software builders are going to build sofware which exactly uses all 4 cores you have one hell of a machine and one hell of a fast application.. Same as games, not many games are using 4 cores at the same time.. I have a Centrino Duo 1.83Ghz and i use Premiere Pro to.. :p.. Im now getting a MBP 17" :D..


    Conclusion:
    Its not about the hardware, its the software..
