Quiet MacBook upgrades turns into whispers.

by tleMega / November 9, 2007 7:46 AM PST

Check out the Apple Store. Now, on the main Store page, there should be two pictures, one with the MacBook saying with 2.2Ghz processors, the other the MBP with the option of 2.6Ghz. Or something like that. Anyway, Apple didn't even comment on it when they actually updated the laptop lines, but now they have given it "some" recognition. But most people don't visit the Apple website everyday to check for new things. Where do I fit in? LOL.
Sucks now that the new Santa Rosa MacBooks rival my MBP with pre-Santa Rosa technology. "Crying... Sniff..." It's not fair! Happens to every stinking Apple device! Whatever, I still have the glossy 15 inch screen :-). Who would run all the games and goodies on that thing anyway, even though it's possible? You could have done that with the original C2D MacBooks too though. Anyway, this was a heads-up.

Now this is a question here: will the new Santa Rosa MacBooks beat a similar 2.16Ghz MBP with pre-Santa Rosa technology? My friend just got his MacBook, so we're bound to run some tests, but if anyone has any comments, feel free to add them here. He's putting 4GB with a third party kit into it soon... I can only hold 3GB and right now I have just 2GB... :-(. I still got the kick-*** ATI card. It's awesome and don't deny it. Though if that Brian Tong dude wants to send me that 2.4Ghz model with the Nvidia card in it, he may do so and I can compare on my own. LOL. I'm such a joke at times :-P.

Apple person to the core!
