I'm looking at the 13" MacBook Pro for my next computer purchase. Anyone have any experience with the 2.66 model? The buyer's guides I've seen all say to wait since there should be an upgrade soon. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Thanks,

You'll always feel best about your purchase if you buy right after a update is released. However, that only lasts until the next refresh. Smile

The 13.3" MBPs are great machines. As always, if you need/want it now, buy it now. If you can wait, wait.

Well, I'm really glad I waited. However, now I'm curious about what the performance difference between the 2.7 i7 dual core proc vs the 2.0 i7 quad core proc is?

Is it worth the extra $300 to step up to the 15" screen, extra video capabilities and the quad core processor?

Has anyone seen benchmarks yet? I know they were just announced today...
