All,

I'm driving myself nuts.  On the Best Buy site, it lists this model (MC721LL/A) for $1800 with a 2nd Gen i7 (quad-core) at 2.0GHz.  Not a single mention of it's turbo speed though.

What is it?

Thanks,
Dave

It can go up to 2.8 with turbo boost for short period of time.  It's a 2.0GHz "Sandy Bridge" processor, quad core i7 with 6MB L3 cache.  Awesome system.. if you're getting one, I'm jealous.  ;-)

Already got one, sold the old one which covered 1/3 the price.  Go get Best Buy's credit card and get 18 months of free financing on it and be jealous no longer :-)

Thanks for the info!
