    Hey guys was wondering if I could run something by you all.

    I am about to purchase a Macbook Pro as my primary machine, which will be used predominately for Pro tools using lots of plugins such as BFD2 and Garage band.

    Im a bit confused as to what model to buy.

    I would obviously like to save money but if its in my best interest I will fork out for the better processor:

    So Im either considering 2.4Ghz i5 or 2.66Ghz i7.

    Will the i5 be enough for audio work?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd go i5 unless money is no issue. I believe the i5 can overclock itself, like the i7 can, as necessary so you should be good to go.
