    Hey guys,

    Im just about to buy a 15-inch Macbook Pro, but I cant decide if I should get the 2.53 or 2.66 GHz model. This computer needs to last me a fairly long time, around 5 years, but is the .13 GHz worth the $300 difference? Thanks

    The only difference you'll notice is in your wallet. Spend the $300 more wisely

    The 2.66 also has a bigger HDD, the answer would be dependent on how much music/media you have. I would probably get the 2.66.
    If I helped you, then hit the "Thanks!" button please.

    Ahhh, Ajl917 your holding out on the facts. And I didnt bother to pull the actual specs

    However if its just also HDD space....for $300 you could get a great portable drive.

    yeah, if the only difference is the .13 GHz then I would save the $300.
    You will never notice the difference
