With the price difference of over $300 going from 2.4 to 2.8. I want to select the best Price to Performance ratio and not just presume that 2.8 is the best, because it is the fastest.

lol, speaking of... anyone know exactly when the 3.06 will be available on the 8886? I would definitely wait for it if it's within a couple of weeks....
PS: I also agree that the bottleneck on notebooks is not the processor. Actually, it's usually the hard drive. If I'm not mistaken, though, a 7200 rpm hard drive is coming out soon... so it'll be nice to pop one of those into the second bay of the 8886 and use it. (If it fits internally, I'd put it there and get my operating system on it too, lol, duh). RAM on these notebooks isn't bad at all... yeah, it's not RDRAM, but my gosh, that stuff costs three arms and two legs, lol. I'd rather have a gig of DDR than 256 RD. Besides, RDRAM is insanely inefficient with power consumption.
