    Well, I bought my MBP last week and have had mixed feelings about taking it back for the 2.4Ghz version. I read on my reciept that there is a $200 charge on returns if the box is opened, plus I would need to pay the difference of the two machines. Is this all correct or if I'm returning it for a better machine will they still charge the extra $200?

    Thanks all in advance.

    Yeah, you will have to pay that, it's the 10% restocking fee that they charge.

    From what I've been reading, the extra VRAM on the video card is giving better results in games and would also more then likely be better for future games. A slightly faster CPU and a much bigger hard drive is nice to have as well. I've only had my MBP for 6 days and I've already filled up 40 gigs with the stuff OSX comes with, music and music apps/software.

    It's 5% faster on average for games, is that worth the price?

    barefeats did some tests comparing the two 15" models, and the difference wasn't much. but if you feel the $700 cost to upgrade from 2.2 ghz to 2.4 ghz is worth it, go for it.
