will there be that much of a difference between the 2.6 and 2.4? and if so, worth the extra 250?
Might be worth it when considering resale value in a year or two.
If you need to ask then the answer is that you absolutely won't know a difference between one or the other...
Indeed. I don't get where people get the idea that these incremental differences make any sort of difference for regular users. It's like trying to decide whether to buy a car with a top speed of 150mph over one with a top speed of 140mph.
Not worth it unless you will be using the processor at maximum capacity for long periods of time.
thanks, you speak truth
I got it simply for down the line resale considerations and I wanted the highest spec I could get.
I did the exact same thing.
Speed improvement is not all that great from the 2.4ghz that my brother has.
The 7200 rpm drive makes more of a difference.
The hard drive most defiantly makes a difference when transferring large data amounts.
I would understand that you may have wanted the highest specs, but it would definitely not give it more resale value. You won't get 250$ more (or whatever it costs) over a similar used for-sale macbook pro without that processor.
I imagine that if you do a lot of encoding, 2,6 might have some advantage over 2,4. But then again, it's only 200 MHz so I don't know for sure.
It depends. If you only worry about resale value, I would say not worth it. It maybe $100-200 difference now. But if you look back, say Pentium 1.6A v.s. 1.8A, who cares. They are both 'old' CPUs. I could be a just personal preference in viewing things.
f1400, I exchange my laptop every 6 months also I get a very decent discount, so when I sell. I end up breaking even or losing approx £60-100.
