    Is it worth the extra $300 to get the 2.53 over the 2.26 GHZ mbp? Just curious what everyone thought. I'm trying to sell my black macbook.

    I guess it depends how poor you are?

    is the $300 worth it was my question. I have plenty of money but don't like to spend it on things that aren't worthwhile.

    I'd rather spend the $300 on a SSD instead. :dunno:

    how is installing a new hd? I've done RAM and that was a breeze. the HD is kind of intimidating to me.

    How much did the RAM set you back and what brand did you go with? I'm leaning toward this.

    No, its not worth $300 for a 270Mhz bump in clock speed, no matter how much money you have. You could overclock that yourself in 2 seconds without changing any voltages etc.
