Yes, there is!

Although 900 MHz is considerably faster than a 600 MHz bus, the 600 MHz is still far ahead of what most people have today...(And Quite honestly, enough)

Fronside Bus speed is the speed you can move data in and out of your processor.

As you can now probably infer, this is very important..

If you would like to get more specific about your personal needs, please tell me what you will be doing with this single 1.8 GHz processor or dual 1.8.( Yes, I know my Macs pretty well)
