    I'm thinking about getting a MacBook Pro and I'm trying to decide weather to get the...

    MacBook Pro 15in. - 2.4Ghz ($1,999.99)

    Or

    MacBook Pro 15in. - 2.5Ghz. ($2,499.99)

    Does 0.1Ghz really matter much?

    So what do you think I should get?

    I don't think it's worth it, I have the 2.4 and it's beautiful.
    However, the 2.5 does have a graphics card with more video memory.

    What will you be using it for?

    Go for the extra megahertz. It makes a difference in my opinion. I love my Macbook Pro.

    I highly reccomend waiting at least until the end of september....there have been many signs from apple that new Macbooks and ipod will be released in september...So I very strongly reccomend waiting. Then you could get the new ones, or one of those for at least $200 off.

    I hope there won't be new MacBook Pros released in september, because it means all the students who bought Macs for Uni will be P****d (including me

    Meh, I'm not overly bothered though, the MBP I have right now is very, very perfect

    Also, 0.1GHz won't make very much of a difference at all. It certainly won't be a visible difference. You will probably notice the extra 256mb of graphics card memory if you do a lot of gaming/graphics stuff.

    It is not just the .o1 ghz that matters, it is also the graphics card. the cheaper 15 inch has 256mb of vRAM and the higher end one has 512mb vRam. I have the 17inch model with the hi-def LED screen and can play BioShock and Halo 2 (with bootcamp vista) on highest possible specs pretty smoothly.

    The 17 inch has the 512 card.

    I wonder what they'll play like on mine (I have the 2.4Ghz one).
    I don't suspect there will be too much difference as I hear mine would be able to play crysis pretty well.

    Btw, I do suggest playing crysis, it's a very pretty game haha!


    However, I refuse to install windows, so that's crysis and bioshock etc out the window haha
