How fast would you measure between:

Macbook Pro Intel Core Duo 2.0 Ghz ?
Macbook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo 2.16 Ghz ? ,and
Macbook Pro Intel Core 2 Duo 2.2 Ghz ?

I am talking about doing multitasking for my Graphic Design projects, such as Adobe inDesign, Adobe Photoshop, and Adobe Illustrator simultaneously.

The processor speeds are pretty much linear, but the big difference is you can put 4 Gb RAM in the 2.2 GHz Santa Rosa, 3.3 Gb in the 2.16 and only 2.0 Gb in the CoreDuo machine.

The Adobe suite gobbles RAM for breakfast, so a 4 Gb 2.2 fully loaded with RAM will smoke the other machines in situations where you have several Creative Suite programs open at once. Photoshop can exploit up to 3 Gb for itself.

All three of them are 1 inch thick, 14.1 inches wide and have a depth of 9.6 inches. Measurement time 12.3 seconds using sewing tape :)

Not much difference where the processor is concerned, RAM is definately what you need, so the more you can get of that the better aka the Macbook Pro in either the 2.2Ghz or preferably the 2.4Ghz configuration with 4GB RAM.

Hope that helps!! :)

Maybe if I used lasers I could measure it more quickly and accurately as well, beating my Guiness World Record time of 12.3 seconds. I was on fire that day!!! Telling you, razor sharp, best form I have been in in ages! :)
