I'm shopping for a 17-inch MacBook Pro and trying to figure out my minimum specs.
From the Apple website it appears these are the two procesor options...
2.2GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 6MB shared L3 cache; or optional 2.3GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 processor with 8MB shared L3 cache
Do the additional .1 Ghz and 2 MB of cache make the 2.3 Ghz model noticeably faster?
(I do understand that HD access is usually the biggest bottleneck, but for my particular tasks CPU speed does make a difference.)
