    Not worth it for the 3.2, too much money for too little gain.

    Now is certainly the time to snap one up, you know that most of them were returned because of the sleep/reboot issue which was just fixed with the firmware update*.

    * Time will tell, but looking solid so far.

    Well, it's a buttload off the price... even through the education channel with discounts, it's still $4500 new.

    I agree going from 2.8-3.2 doesn't give very significant gains in performance. I seriously though about buying a 3.2, but instead went with a WD Raptor HD and 8 GB RAM upgrades. Total cost will still be less and realistically the faster HD and more RAM will boost your performance more that a couple extra CPU cycles per second in most situations.

    But hey if you got the money by all means get a 3.2 I know I certainly would have if money wasn't a factor.

    It's $700 less than the normal Store price for that configuration and only $200 more than the DEVELOPER price for that configuration ($100 when you factor in the cost of the cheapest developer package).

    Phenomenal deal, I'd say.
