Well, buying a MacBook Pro now, it will, of course, become old in a few months. It is the going on the fourth month sence the release, and Apple re-releases (small tweaks) on its computers (just) about every 6 months or so. So if your anxious, just go ahead, the update will be very minor (considering that it is a brand new product, not an ageing one).
As for buying a 1.83 vs 2.0, the specs don't lie, a processor is a processor (especailly a Core Duo vs a Core Duo (not G4 vs. G5, say). IF you were to buy a 2.0, not only would you gain the speed (minor) but you would gain some more features, such as twice (1GB) the RAM, and twice the video memory, and a 20GB bigger hard drive. So you decide if its worth the extra $500, (i say, if you've got the $$ (and its not needed for anything else) then why not?!)
- How can I ensure that the Macbook I get will be the latest revision with all the hardware tweaks? Will any Macbook I get be the latest version?
- Does anyone have benchmarks of the 1.83 vs. 2.0 models? Is it worth going for the extra speed?
