apple tax
However, on Intel ARK: 6660u - $415.00 6360u - $304.00 Apple charges an extra $300!
Yeah, but Ghz doesn't matter much. The Core 2 Quad at 4.5ghz still has 1/10th of the performance, despite having twice the ghz, and twice the cores. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i7-6650U-vs-Intel-Core-i5-6360U Here are the difference between the i5 and i7. About 15%, is it worth the extra cost?
For those of us considering the MacBook Pro 2016 (without Touchbar), these are the two processor options. Nearly a half GHz faster on the i7. Definitely worth it.
