    The latest MBP (Penryn) 2.5 and 2.6 have 6M L2 Cache vs. the older model (Santa Rosa) only has 4M. If your looking to purchase a 2.4 Penryn, I would recommend getting the Santa Rosa version since the new one only has 3M L2 Cache vs. Santa Rosa which has 4M.

    But remember that a lot of people are having Sleep Issues on a SR model.

    There are several differences between the MBP and the MB. In case you want to compare the current models against each other check out the following as it has a section called "Key features in the new MacBook Pro models versus MacBook models"

    It might be helpful if you told us a little about what you would use it for so we can tell you the differences that would matter to you. :)
