Today, mostly unnoticed, with all the talk about Lion, Mac Book Air, and Apps the Mac Book Pro size 15 and 17 inch got a processor bump of the i7 to 2.8. In the 15 it is $200 and in the 17 it is $400. Now I'm not dumb when it comes to money, how can the same processor be $200 more in a 17 inch book?

It's not about them simply passing their costs onto you. It's about how much they can get away with charging. Smile
