hey every1,
Im in the market for a PM, and i came across a used dual 2.5. What are the differences between the older 2.5 and the new dual 2.3 and 2.7s? How do they differ in hardware specs and speed? Any info you can provide me with would be quite helpful!

Thanks,
-Zach

EDIT: been comparing the specs and it seems everything is the same with the exception of a 900mhz FSB instead of a 1.13/1.25ghz FSB. How much will that affect performance? And will the extra CPU speed offset that?

I dont have one of these, but off the top of my head...

The new one has a max of 4GB RAM, the old ones 8, or something like that...

Also the new PM has dual layer DVD writer
