As the days feel like weeks I'm waiting eagerly for the new MacBook Pro. Recently I've found myself reading through these forums with you lads and I has been very educational as I'll soon be a ex-windowser (first platform change since amiga!!). My question is a simple one: Why is Apple (or maybe intel) charging $250/ £120 for an extra 100 mhz boost? It is understandable that Intel desktop processors cost less per 100 mhz but can the difference be that much? Is there also a noticable teamperature difference between the 2.5 and 2.6 ghz versions?
