    I believe that Apple uses the standard GPU speed to create a differential between the rMBP and rMB (obviously).

    I am not an expert on "turbo boost" or GPU speeds by any means. It seems as though the turbo boost speeds are relatively close compared to the standard speeds.

    What are your thoughts on this difference in speed? Are there any disadvantages when running on "turbo boost" speeds?

    Standard Speed vs. Turbo Boost on standard models:

    Macbook Pro 2.7 - 3.1GHz
    Macbook 1.1 - 2.4GHz

    More heat, lower battery life. Turbo boost is dynamic and it will automatically adjust the clock speeds depending on what you're doing and the processor temperature.
