On Appleinsider today I noticed the benchmark tests for a 2.5 GHz penryn vs. last year's model with a 2.6 GHz processor. Guess what? Last year's model out-performed the penryn in all tests except a memory test where their numbers were quite close. Where was the big boost in performance expected by the hundreds of you who wrote threads last year and this year? And now I'm seeing 'wait 'til June for the big change in laptops". Here we go, again.... The bottom line is I am quite happy with my 2.6 Ghz 17 inch model and my case of 'new mac envy' has been squelched.
