It does? I didn't know that. Thanks
Btw which MBP do you think hits that performance-price sweet spot. The core i7 MBP costs around 2150(non-reflective screen), but is it really worth it over the 2.4Ghz core i5 MBP 15 or the 2.4GHz core 2 duo MBP 13? I don't wanna pay extra if it isn't really a huge boost. My main criteria is battery life when I'm in classes and decent power for multitasking(stuff watching a 1080p HD video on external display, working on a document and browsing with a couple of tabs open) when I'm in my room.
i7 is about 15-20% faster than i5,but for daily tasks you aren't going to see a noticeable
However both i7/i5 are significantly faster than core 2 duo.
But for your tasks(movies and web-surfing),a Core 2 Duo suffices,
