I have the C2D, purchased in January. I sold it on ebay, not shipped yet, and could get the 27" i3 for the same price I sold it for on ebay with a new printer and some new BOSE Companion II speakers, my BOSE companion 1st gen are from 2006. But is it worth all of the hassle for this small of a speck jump. I'm a casual user, no crazy games or video editing. Perhaps i'll rent from redbox, a DVD vending machine for $1 for the ones who dont know what redbox is, and handbrake the DVD to my iMac so I can watch it on all of my iDevices. Please help!
