Apple MacBook Pro Update

Apple has just updated their MacBook Pros to the new Intel Core 2 Duo processor. It’s probably a little earlier than many had predicted, but it’ll certainly be a well-received upgrade.

The new MBPs are slightly faster (clock-speed-wise) than the previous model, have Core 2 Duo, HDD options of 100GB (7200 rpm)/160GB (5400 rpm)/200GB (4200 rpm), RAM up to 3GB (1x2GB + 1x1GB), FW800 and dual-layer SuperDrives.

I’ve been trying to decide between getting a 17″ MacBook Pro or a 13″ MacBook with a Dell 24″ LCD (I can salary package a new laptop each year). The two setups would work out to almost exactly the same price.

The MBP obviously has a larger built-in screen, is faster, has better graphics, and a few more ports and things. However, the MB + 24″ LCD offers better portability and a huge screen for when I’m working at my desk. I’m leaning towards the MB + LCD at this stage, but I’m hoping for an MB upgrade early next year (I need to make the purchase before April).

Which way would you go?
