    i7. With the i7 model, you get:

    1.) Faster Clock Speed
    2.) An extra MB of L3 Cache
    3.) 2X the GDDR3 Graphics Memory (15 inch Models)

    Thanks guys placed an order for the i7 model. To be honest im a tech head and want the highest spec also got it for E1,000 brand new straight from apple. Il probably eventually use it for production ect.

    In hindsight this thread is probably irrelevant as i had probably always would have went for the i7.

    But thanks.
