    Default Which would you reccommend?
    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.

    Here are the specs.

    MacBook Pro, 15", Aluminum

    - 2.53 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo
    - 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM- 2x2GB
    - 320 GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
    - SuperDrive 8x

    Total: $1,768

    or

    MacBook Pro, 15", Aluminum

    - 2.66 GHz, Intel Core 2 Duo
    - 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM- 2x2GB
    - 320GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm

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

    You will be just fine with the 2.53GHz!
