    Do I know I am getting the mbp, but I don't know if I should get the one with 2.6ghz, or 2.8ghz?

    These are the things I would do with it:
    -Game, Minecraft, Black Ops, Cod4
    -Program, Xcode, Java etc...
    -Websurf and more...

    So what do you guys think I should get?

    Processor upgrades are for the most part a waste of money...save the dough and spend it where the benefit will actually be noticeable.

    I would agree: CPU is not as important as RAM and drive space. 2.6 GHZ to 2.8GHz is only like a 7-8% increase. 16GB RAM might keep the laptop more current as the years go by. And, obviously, drive space will allow you to keep more stuff on the laptop.
