    I am thinking of purchasing a MBP 17. Right not I am using a MBA 13, which I left a MBP 15 for. While the MBA is wonderful machine, I find myself missing the larger screen size.

    My question is this: how well will a C2D processor hold up over time? Should I even look at these models or should is stick to only the i7's? I do not do too much that is processor heavy, but I want something that will last a while. Don't want it to be sluggish after only a year or so, especially with Mountain Lion coming soon.

    Any advice is appreciated.

    I'm still running a 4 year old C2D MBP. It runs as well as the day I opened the box. I haven't upgraded because I haven't found a need to yet. YMMV.

    I still have my '09 13" C2D. It isn't really living up to what I need it to do now - of course, that's not nearly the same as the reason I got it three years ago (and it's gone through a few bangs/broken parts along the way).

    All I know is that I can't wait to replace it with something iX at the end of this summer.
