I usually like to update and get the newest model every year its available by selling and buying. But now that I have the optibay mod in there, its too much of a hassle either way. I have the 17" 2.3 so even if the 2.4-2.7s come out its gonna be so minuscule that I can't see myself going through all the work to either take out and uninstall my optibay and the ram and everything just so I could sell it and then reinstall it all on a new model that I have to wait for in the post. At the end of the day I don't like knowing I don't have the current top of the line, but I also don't like opening these bad boys up and working on them because it takes away from the mystique. Like if you open them up, its like they are getting violated, and they are your babies... I guess I can always sell it as is and just buy new ram and new optibay and HD again. That is probably the most profitable way. Are these new processors even worth it? I can't decide if I want to put in the work. I really don't.
