Hey there, So close to buying an i5 2.53ghz, 500GB hd, 4GB Ram.. then I thought, I could save a packet if I went for the last gen macbook pro. I'm wanting to do audio recording, a bit of non-intense video, and a bit of gaming (Unreal Tournament 3, FPSes etc) eventually and want to run it into the ground (my current machine is 7 years old). What are the reasons not to go for a Core 2 Duo over the i5/i7 on a performance/cost basis? Educate me... Many thanks, V.
