They say I can upgrade to a 2.13GHz P4M for another £130 + VAT. And the best thing? They've given me an estimated shipping date of 20/02/2005. I can't wait.
Any advice about the 2 -> 2.13 CPU upgrade? My order isn't going into production until after the weekend, so I need to decide in the next couple of days. I normally buy one below the top-of-range spec since that makes the most economic sense, but £130 isn't much more. Will the extra 0.13 Ghz make any noticable difference?
It would be quite hard to tell the diff between 2 & 2.13GHz in normal day-to-day use. Also, you could always upgrade to the 770 or faster when the prices drop on the newer Pentium M's.
