First of all thanks for anyone acknowledging my thread. I'm a first time poster. My question was regarding a purchase between the 2.7ghz and the 3.1ghz. Primarily used for photography editing and HD video editing. Nothing anything in regards to professional editing. Just personal hobby. Which version would you guys recommened? I'm just listening to advice before I make a purchase. The 3.1ghz would save me $250-300. Thanks guys And sorry of there are similar threads like this.
