    You've pretty much hit the spot with your two choices. I would personally go with 3.33Ghz 6 core cause of the higher clock speed, and considering that Logic doesn't properly utilize all the cores, but if you do have the money for 12 cores, go for it.

    I agree with Milan. you want core speed for Logic, not more cores. save a grand and buy yourself a new instrument instead :)
