    Those number can't be right. There is 300 between low and high, but 500 between the regular and high end?

    EDIT: my mistake, I'm an idiot.

    But I would go with the low-end MBP if I were trying to be being fiscally responsible.

    Check the website. But it is pretty confusing. I'll change it.

    Guessing that about 95% are going to say MBP low-end.

    i am missing five options:

    • none of the above since all three refreshes suck bullocks
    • the 2011 MBP refresh, since C2D will be EOL by then
    • the i5 MBP13 they forgot to release just now
    • the 15" since it has arrandale and the dedicated GPU
    • the MBA since it might come out with core iX but most likely will have the same C2D/320M as the other new macs.

    :D not sure what i would choose though even with these options added to the poll. not the first three that is for sure!

    highend 13" doesnt future proof anything :rolleyes:

    .26ghz for $300 is future proofing? Sounds like wasting money to me.

    well if you look at the bulk price difference on the intel site it makes a lot more sense :confused:

    http://ark.intel.com/Compare.aspx?ids=40380,35568,

    it's a whopping $32 more expensive then the low-end model.

    13" MBP Base model

    I just received my 13" MBP base model from mac connection. $1099 (after rebate), no tax, no shipping charge.

    I decided the extra features of the MBP were worth the price difference. Even after the new revision released yesterday I still feel that way (the backlit keyboard and SD slot are big deals to me).

    The C2D is older tech, but this will be a secondary machine so I'm fine with that. It is replacing my beloved 12" PowerBook after all :)

    I love my high end (although I probably should have gone with the low end one)

    If you don't mind me asking, what do you generally use your MBP for and have you noticed the extra .26Ghz helps with what you are doing? I'm looking at the 2.4GHz at the moment, after originally considering the high end 13" MBP until they increased the price. I just want to be 100% sure before I buy mine when the BTS promotion starts this summer.

    No one should buy the high end 13" because it's a complete waste of money and it will send a message to apple. If you have another $300 burning a hole in your pocket, go buy an eIPS external monitor or SSD.

    Apple loves to overprice like hell don't they. For a $32 upgrade, they charge $300 for :eek:

    More than likely apple pays the same amount for both processors. Neither were high end core 2 duos meaning only 3 MB cache instead of 6 MB.

    initially wanted the high end, but after reading a grip of posts/threads, i went with the base model. slap in a ssd with that $300 and you'll be flying pass the high end model :D

    I wouldn't want any. 13" is way too small. If I HAD to get one I'd go with the basic Macbook and then get another screen to hook it up to.
