Not much for $300

Dunno if any of you Mac fans out there noticed, but Apple quietly added another option to their top of the line laptop.

For my money (that I don't have, that is), $300 buys a
lot of double mochachino extra latte supremes.

If you're willing to get a refurb, the difference narrows to $200 (between the two refurb models). But that's still too much, in my book.

Interesting. I didn't see that. I *JUST* got a mac mini with a single Intel processor. I couldn't think of any apps that would require the core duo. But you're right. $300 for .16 GhZ?

Congrats on the new mini! That sounds like a great way to get into the universal binary world. (I'll be selling my beloved powerbook very soon.)

I saw some report on the net where a Dual G5 was tested as slower than an intel mac.

As for the "duo" feature itself, notice that it confers virtually twice the computational power, not twice or nearly twice. I don't think it's an accidental choice of words; they probably chose that very carefully.
