I’ll soon be publishing a new research article on memory and solid state drives vs hard drives in the new MacBook Pro Core i7— see my review of the MacBook Pro Core i7.
I sent my advance report on the Mac Pro 3.33GHz quad vs 2.93GHz 8-core earlier today to the mailing list. Those who didn’t sign up will have to wait a bit longer for publication in Mac Performance Guide. Do you need 8GB in the MacBook Pro?
The full report explores 4G vs 8GB and hard drive vs single and dual solid state drives.
