Mr. Reeee

I just ordered one. BUT, I opted for the 2.66ghz i7 with 512 MB VRAM, 8GB RAM and a 7200 rpm hard drive. They say that the i7 ONLY gives you a 5% to 7% speed boost. But for only $200, it seems like a deal, PLUS the extra VRAM will make a difference.

I do CAD and 3D work, so I need as much kick as I can get, BUT if we're talking gaming, more VRAM and the faster hard drive make a big difference speed wise. The $50 premium for a 7200 rpm drive is the cheapest and most comprehensive speed boost you can get (aside from maxing out the RAM) for EVERYTHING you do; from booting up, to Opening and Saving files, to Time Machine backups, to literally everything you do that's disk relate.. It's an absolute no-brainer!

Can't wait to get it!!!
