Yes, but really it comes down to *what do YOU do with the machine.*

For example, I mostly write for a living. I barely need a computer at all to do this, and the difference between a quad-i7 and a G3 is hardly noticeable -- in word processing.

Now for some of the other things I do -- like podcasting -- more processing power is definitely noticeable. But really nothing I do on a regular basis "pushes" the processor of even this 2007 Core2Duo Blackbook I have, so I haven't been in a rush to upgrade too much (though I do hope to get a new MacBook Pro later this year).
