well i am a new person to apple and im trying to figure out if i could use a i7 or just the i5. i heard that the difference is only like 5-10% but im going to be a animator/ game developer so i don't know if that percentage will make a difference in my renders by 5 mins or 30 mins. so it is ether the 2.53 i5 or the 2.66 i7, both will be glossy cause it saves me a good 50 bucks and i could always get a matte protector. Also im not just buying this just for my work it is also just to test out the realm of mac and see if i could make games for it. i do have a rig pc that i will soon update that will act as a render farm (im too poor for a mac pro sadly...). so is it worth the extra 100 bucks to go with the i7 and put it on credit card or should i just go with the i5 and pay for it in full? ps. i did another question on this forum but i swear im not a troll its just i didn't have the money at the time and now i do, im pretty much on the apple website store as we speak. sincerely ,a soon to be mac user.
