I just picked up a MacBook off of Craigslist, advertised as "2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor". I am in the process of getting it set up and I realize that it is a plain ol' 2 Ghz Core Duo, not the "2" version.
Of course I checked the "About This Mac" at the point of purchase, but I overlooked that little missing "2".
Should I feel ripped off? The web seems to lead me to believe that Core 2 is better, but is the amount it's better worth the hassle of making a fuss? It was such an amicable transaction, and I can tell that this person wouldn't have intentionally been misleading over this detail. It's otherwise a fine machine and I'm sure I would have never noticed if I hadn't looked more closely in the profiler. My instinct is to just keep it with no fuss.
I'm just disappointed because I thought I got a pretty good deal and now it feels like just an average deal. Value really is a matter of subjective perception.
