Thanks for suggesting I wait for the Macbook Core2's. NOW the question is, is the new mid-range model worth springing for? I can get ed. pricing, so it's $1049 MB 1.83GHz +$183 AppleCare -------- $1232 +$79 512MB RAM (Crucial) =$1311 OR $1199 MB 2.0GHz +$183 AppleCare =$1382 (includes 1GB RAM and now a Superdrive) I think now the mid-range option is worth the extra $$$ - what do you think? Thanks.
