...just posting to celebrate! After 3 months of having no computer on which to do my processing - I found a great deal on a 2.2 Quad-core MacBook Pro. Now all it needs is a tiny little upgrade to 16gb of Ram and it'll be right there with my work machine - a 3.4 Quad-core iMac.

Don't be to hard on the humble Core 2. Unless apple have somehow messed it up, the core 2 family are great workhorses. And they handle overclocking extremely well.

And remember.. In a few months, people will be looking down their noses at the Sandy Bridge as well.

...um...it's a sandy bridge quad core 2.2. I'm not sure what you're talking about. It's a feb 2011 MacBook Pro, hence sandy bridge quad core. Not a core 2 duo. Though either way it would be a nasty machine!!
