From what I understand then the Macbook Pro C2D's had a significant temp decrease, but apparently the Macbook C2D's are just as hot if not hotter. So what exactly did they do to improve the MBP...

With all the advice going around about "no viruses" then I think it should be asked of the OP whether or not he gets alot of viruses on PC.

Virus scares are something mac people love to point...

2GB Ram.

Considering you even have to ask then its safe to assume you arent going to be doing anything that high end there (or you wouldve just picked both 7200+2GB).

Actually, best buy etc has had C2D for a while now. And theyre pretty slow in updating to technology so that does indicate Apple is behind in relation to the rest of the world.

Right, but I guess thats my (and the rest of the non-mac elites) problem. Who. Cares. We're consumers so if Apple makes an extra billion then in no way does it benefit us. But then adjusted prices,...

Its far from my intentions to hijack this thread, but I do have to point out that what you stated there is a gross misconception about PC's.
