    Hi
    So, just looking at the Retina MacBook Pro with the 2.6Ghz processor, and saw the upgrade to 2.7Ghz. $250 for an extra 100Mhz? I just don't get why a realistic person would upgrade this...seems like the most expensive processing power ever! Is there something I'm missing that makes the upgrade actually worth the extra? I just can't see it making a noticeable change to the speed of the machine. Any comments?

    For those with more money than sense and the dying urge for bragging rights?

    you also get a larger cache, 6<8mb.

    But won't make much difference no you're right.

    The turbo-boost speed is also increased slightly. That might help for intensive tasks.
