Hello all, I'm in the process of purchasing a 17" Macbook Pro and have a few questions to throw out there to everyone and anyone. First of all, is the 2.6 GHZ that much faster than the 2.4? Is it worth the extra $250?
Secondly, with the hard disks, is the 5400 RPM better than a 7200RPM? All my external drives have always been 7200.
Lastly, since I do video editing, is it worth me getting the high resolution screen (1900x1200) -vs- the lower res 1680x1050?
Thanks for the help!

7200 is faster than the 5400
im guessing that you were looking at the larger hard drives, and typically, the larger ones have the 'slower speed'

If your going to be spending that much money, whats another 250 bucks?? Id get the 2.6. Id also get the high res screen...if you plan on doing serious photo/video editing.
