Recording Music on MacBook Pro: 2.53 vs. 2.8 ghz

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
Here?s my question?

I?m buying a MacBook Pro this week, and I can?t decide whether to get the 2.53 ghz model or the 2.8 ghz model. I don?t play games, but I will be recording a lot of music. I?ll be using some sort of audio recording program, producing songs with as many as 20 tracks each with lots of effects like reverb, compression, etc.

I also want this to be the only computer I use (for internet, photos, word processing, maybe some video) for at least the next six years.

So what do you think? Is it worth the extra dough to upgrade to the 2.8 ghz model, or is the 2.53 ghz model a better value?

This will be my first Mac. Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I think you should wait until Macworld is over just in case they release new software i.e. iLife (GarageBand)
