I'm preparing to buy the 17" Macbook Pro. I'm wondering about the option to upgrade the processor from the standard 2.66 MHz to the optional 2.93 MHz.

Is there a noticeable difference in the two in day to day use? Is it really only relevant if I'm going to be doing HEAVY video/photo editing? Will it impact battery performance? I'm trying to figure out if it's worth the extra $300 or not.

If anyone out there has one or has experienced the difference (or just knows some good information/feedback), I'd sure appreciate it. I'm pretty excited about making the switch to Apple. Lord knows I love my iPhone.

Thanks.
