    that clears that up then, also explains why the number of Ghz hasn't seem to increase over the last couple of years

    hmmm...

    edit; done some deeper googling and a total clock speed of 4Ghz (based on 2Ghz dual) would only happen if both cores work on the same threads simultaneously, if traktor was only being handled by one core it would still be 2. if traktor didn't support 'simultaneous multi-threading' it would render a dual core pointless

    true. But, in your situation I'd say try to get help for the GAS and keep your current laptop. If it aint broke dont fix it

    I'm about to upgrade from the same computer as you. I'll be getting the 2.44GHZ as the 2.6 has only seen a difference in mostly 3d rendering apps (it's hardly better in boot-camp, photoshop, app launching, etc.). I'll be getting the lowest 15" macbook pro with a SSD (SSD is byfar the biggest upgrade you can get right now, it makes such a huge difference it isn't even funny!) and a hi-res non-gloss screen upgrade.
