    no he won't.

    if you're doing normal tasks, you won't notice a difference at all.
    the only difference you would notice would be like 10% faster times encoding video or rendering ****.

    from a 1.83 core duo to a 2.2 core 2 duo
    yes he will notice a difference in everything, booting up, apps loading, everything

    I noticed a difference between from a 1.8 core duo to a 2.0 core 2 duo
    not a huge difference though

    Listen to this guy. You really won't notice the difference unless you're constantly overstressing your MB, and if you were, you'd already have the benchmarks in hand to know how little of a difference it would make. Save your money and enjoy your Mac, instead of craving for the absolute newest technology. Otherwise, you're going to be making this thread again in six months right after the May '08 updates come to the MB. When's it going to be enough?

    Define "big". ;)

    Normal stuff (surfing the net, MS Word, Excel, typical photo editing stuff) = no difference

    Photoshop = almost no difference.

    Encoding of some sort = a bit of difference, maybe 15%. Sounds great, but in real terms, expressing the time savings in terms of time rather than percentage, you probably won't save much time unless your files are huge and you do this often.

    Work in 3D, or play video games = you'll definitely notice a difference.

    I went from a 1.83 GHz Core Duo to a 2.0 GHz C2D, and I notice a bit of a difference, but it's small. The only reason I got the newer system is because my 1st gen MacBook was a lemon, and Apple replaced it for free. Otherwise, I wouldn't have replaced it.
