Ok all, I had a thread regarding this yesterday that was met with a lot of indecision. I've currently got a 1.5 ghz/1.5/80gb Powerbook, and I'm looking to get a portable for basic tasks (surfing, email, itunes, Adium, etc.), yet sometimes with a little Photoshop/FCP thrown in. I would *maybe* game on it as well (but obvs would only work with MBP), but I do have a really nice gaming rig PC anyways, so probably not. I'm a law student, and use my PB for notes in class, moot court, library, etc. and would be using the new machine for similar activities. Now, I'm also looking for performance, but I don't really know how much better one will perform than the other? I'm just looking at the percentages of your votes here; they will basically decide which one I get! P.S. The MB = $1,200, the MBP = $1,400...also, I'd probably throw a new 120 gb hard drive in the MB from newegg, bringing the price up near $1,340 total. P.P.S. I've been assured by both owners that both MB and MBP are in perfect condition, no mooing, overheating, discoloration, etc.
