posting this for a friend who was thinking of getting a new machine. im not sure what to tell him. all i know thereisnt much difference betweena 2.2 and the 2.0ghz for the average person, i know a big didffeeence would be the 1gb graphics card over the 256mb one. the only thing he does is basic interneting surfing, youtube etc, and as a "hobby" making youtube videos but not like going into graphic editing or nothing that intensive. none the less, would the high end be worth it? the upgrade would be 400-450 i believe, including the anti glare res in addition.
