Hi,

Very quick question, the choice in processing power seems extremely small for the price. I will use the machine as a work horse: internet; office; adobe prof plus CS; stat analysis software.

I am struggling to think if i will need 0.1 extra processing power.

I am looking for advice on the pro/cons on upgrading or not, thanks!

Save your cash ( or maybe blow it on max'ing out the ram to 16gb ). That .1ghz and L3 8mb cache just ain't worth it IMHO.

I think you are both right, i may even consider the 2.3 version, maxing the ram and sticking with that. As long as my most demanding programme (currently CS5) will be future proof (for CS6/7 etc), then i do not mind not having the top version,

CS5 works fine on my 2009 MBP 13" 2.53 core2duo with 8gb of RAM. so I would imagine the low end i7 will work with cs5,6&7 just fine. :D

You definitely want to max the RAM out for sure.
