    I checked the specific specs on the Apple store but all it says is "QUAD CORE i7". They're glossing over the specifics!- or I'm a little drunk on waiting-for-arrrandale-MBPs.

    Thanks in advance guys.

    Thanks guys.
    The provided link seems to show a general consensus that 860 is marginally better than 920.

    What about 860 vs 930 though?


    P.S. I cracked after waiting 3 months for Arrandale MBPs. Ordered my i7 iMac just a few hours ago.
    You USA'ers are so lucky! $2200USD for iMacs on eBay!
    I have to pay $3200AUD for my iMac ($2950USD).

    It's 860.

    930 has TDP of 130W (too hot) with 3 x DDR3-1066 mem controller, has QPI instead of DMI and it uses LGA 1366 socket while 860 uses LGA 1156
