true. but not $700 worth. and the performance difference between those two chips is almost negligible.
edit: i built one on dell for $1200 with a 2.2 core 2. 2 gb ram. dvd burner. etc. went to hp, built a core duo system 2 ghz, 2gb ram, 256 mb vid card, litescribe dvd burner for about $850. so comparable systems are out there for cheaper. i'm not trying to bash macs or anything. i really like macs. i loved macs before the went to the intel proc. it's just that i don't understand what the premium is now. since you can get the exact same parts in another machine cheaper. oh well.
