    They include a larger cache (6MB compared to 4MB), add new instructions (SSE4 for certain tasks), faster Front Side Bus, made on 45nm lithography which means it will run faster and cooler.

    You can read more about it here.

    Is it worth the wait for the new MacBookPro thats believed to arrive on jan2008? Actually the reason thats putting me in the thought of waiting is the yellow tint fault that the current led 15" MBPro has. So im hoping that waiting untill then, maybe that problem will have been corrected! Hopefully!
