There are two 19's on eBay Europe who i'm interested in, but I can't choose between the 200€ more expensive Mk7 or the Mk6.

Both are A-grade, the Mk7 has some paint splatters on it which isn't a big deal. Should I just go with the Mk6 and put the 200€ towards upgrades like a GPS module?

I was already thinking of that one, the Mk7 isn't a DT model so it would be a very expensive upgrade just to get 100 MHz more.

and you probably couldnt make much/prolonged use of that 100mhz due to 10w higher TDP ... 65 for mk6 vs 75 for mk7
also, that 100mhz are only 80mhz ... assuming mk7 has same 80% throttle as mk6
more importantly: qubes, openbsd and ME guides only exist for mk6 ;-)

mk5s (sata3) and mk6s (i5-3320m) are the best 19s/20s of this decade so far. ymmv
(note: 19mk9*/ 20mk2 specs not yet released at this point in time, so no comment on that)


* I know 19 is eol. but i simply _refuse_ to accept it. => Mind over Matter ;-)
