Here's what I'm considering. Both are refurb models: Black Macbook Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, 1 GB RAM, 120 GB Hard Drive, $1299 -or- Macbook Pro Core Duo 1.83 GHz, 512 MB RAM, 80 GB Hard Drive, $1299 I've been agonizing over this decision for a long time. The lack of RAM and the smaller hard drive in the MBP are a definite turn off, but I feel like the MB would look like crap after prolonged use, and I'm going to be keeping this machine for probably the next three years. 802.11n and 64-bit apps won't really take off for the next few years, so the processor's not a big deal. I'm not a gamer, but I will be doing: photo editing, a dab of video editing (iMovie only, nothing extensive), web surfing, word processing, Keynote presentations, and frequent travel back and forth to Houston while I am in training. I won't be flying, as I'm within driving distance, but I will need something to lug back and forth from my hotel room to my classes. Basically, I'm sold on the design and "easy-to-clean"-ness of the Pro, but would the Macbook be better suited for my needs?
