The speed difference between the dual core i5's is negligible, I doubt you'll notice it. You should've gone quad-core 15" if the CPU was holding you back that much.This morning I did an exchange for the 2.8Ghz model bc I need that extra power. Does anyone out there have the 13 Inch 2.8Ghz? How is it treating you?
I'm a bit confused to why you're asking what other people are doing with their machines and how well it works:
1) You said you former computer wasn't powerful enough, which I would conclude you exchanged for a faster model expecting a certain increase in performance;
2) At the same time you're asking people why they need this much powerdon't you know the answer to this question?
Anyways if you really need performance, consider the 15" model for their quad core processors.
It doesn't really seem like they actually do...but whatever floats your boat I guess.Oh nice. I'll be using it for school and just web-browsing and stuff
So you paid an extra 300 bucks for power you will never even use and have absolutely no need for?oh nice. I'll be using it for school and just web-browsing and stuff. :]
