    New Macbook Pro question
    Hi,

    I have been considering buying the new Macbook Pro as I will be using it for midi and audio recording on Logic Pro 8 but I am a bit disappointed that Apple have downgraded the L2 cache from 4mb to 3mb

    Is there any reduction in performance on the new Macbook Pro compared with the old model which had 4mb L2 cache?

    I have also considered buying a refurbished Macbook Pro from the Apple store website. I would save £200 doing this rather than buying new. Would anyone recommend this?

    Cheers
