Bing.com has been running 8% off buy it now purchases on ebay, I had a bunch of ebay bucks to burn, found a good deal on an MBP with AppleCare, and effectively snagged one of the newest models for around ~$1700 shipped as I was running into serious RAM headroom issues with my older 2.4Ghz MBP (maxed out at 4GB) when tracking guitarists in Amplitube 3 with any kind of acceptable latency. I had to use my RME Multiface II, an external preamp, AND turn pretty much everything off or render it to get acceptable latency at the first session I used Amplitube 3 at and realized that the software world was about to leave my machine in the dust with how demanding the latest and greatest is on RAM. I looked forward to installing 8GB and getting up to speed in 64-bit. I can still return this if I want to, and I'm wondering if it doesn't make a lot more sense to wait until Apple comes out with a core i5 Macbook Pro. How significant of a performance increase would I be getting with the new Intel processors? Am I just being obsessively and needlessly paranoid about laptop specs right now?
