    I did not realize that the original release of the latest MBP came with a 2.0 Ghz i7? Are they from the same processor line? I'd like to see how much faster the 2.2/2.3 is over the 2.0.

    yes they are all intel quad core sandy bridge CPU's. Although I believe the 2.3 models have a larger cache.

    Interesting that Intel only recommends 8 GB of RAM for the 2.0 whereas the others are stated as supporting 16.
