    Question Advice about getting Macbook Pro
    Hello,

    I need some advice, I am looking to purchase a new Macbook Pro.

    I see that I can get a Apple MacBook Pro Core Duo 2GHz 15" Notebook for about $1400

    Or I can get a Apple MacBook Pro Core Duo 2 for $2000 want to know what the main differences are, I know that the newer version is faster but is it worth the extra cash? Please let me know what you think? :ninja:

    Well, if all the other specs are the same, then the only difference is that the Core 2 Duo is a 64 bit processor. By putting down the extra $600, you would be buying a little bit longer life for your MacBook. Eventually everything will switch to 64 bits from 32. When that happens, everyone with a 32 bit processor will be SOL. I don't know when Apple plans to phase out the 32 bit processor, but it is probably not going to be that far off. Windows has already started the phase-out with their new release of Vista. There is a 32 and 64 bit version. Apple will probably start doing the same thing over the next few years.

    Get the Core2Duo if you can afford to. It flat out screams.
