    Hi guys,

    I will be taking the plunge to another Mac computer in a few days and am looking to know if there is that much difference in the 2.26GHz MacBook and the 2.53GHz MacBook.

    I am upgrading the memory in the 2.26GHZ to 4GB.

    Thanks!
    Also - would they have plenty of stock?

    The processor probably won't make much difference. What do you use your computer for?

    There will be no difference, it's such small difference.

    Maybe, or maybe not ;) No-one knows yet.

    Depends on games, if you want to play newest FPS games with high settings, then not, but almost every game at low-medium graphics

    I think photoshop (and others in CS4) will work smoothly. Am I right?

    Yes! Please post Geekbenches or something similar to compare the two. I'm very interested in the results.
