Hello, I'm sure this has been debated before, but I am a newbie to this, so please forgive me . I am looking to buy a macbook pro very soon (can't wait for merom) and my budget is sorta limited. I am wondering if it better to get 2.16Ghz vs 2.0Ghz, or 2GB of RAM vs the stock 1GB. What is worth more, the leap from 1GB to 2GB of RAM, or the leap from 2.0Ghz to 2.16Ghz of CPU processing speed? Additionally, how much does the integrated graphics on the macbook matter, as I am also considering buying a maxed-out macbook insterad of a pro model, but I would like to do some gaming through boot camp. As well, I do plan to purchase the macbook soon, but I am wondering what are the advantages of merom? If it is simply 64-bit, is the only advantage that you can support a lot more RAM (which is unneccessary for me). Thanks a lot EDIT: approximately how long will it take to merom to come out? are we talking weeks, months, or years? also, what specifically would be the advantages of merom, for the avrage user.
