I have saved my $$$ I can get a MM 2.5x2 or a 2.3x4 No other upgrades until I do the cheap 16g ram. I will use it as home entertainment and GarageBand, well all iLife stuff. I think the 2.5x2 will do that great. But this is a Tic right? Miner upgrade? The Haswell is supposed to be the Toc, major upgrade? All the research I have done about the Haswell seems to be centered around less power consumption, not speed? What about 2, 3 years from now? for 2 bills more you get 40% more goodness. If I am having success with GarageBand I may want to try Logic. Can I be enlightened here? Is Haswell going to be a Toc?
