Ok, first post here. Ive been lurking the forums for a while now and now I have a dilemma. My girlfriend has a 1.83 MB which is absolutely great for our tasks (word processing, surf web and music, browsing and editting pictures). Now I have to get my own computer. I saw that MacConnection has the 1.83 MBP for $1500 after rebates. Im guessing the 1.83MBPs were the first MBPs? I really want the MBP ever since, I love the backlit keyboard feature and the better screen. Here's the problem, is it worth 500 more than the regular MB ($1000 from amazon)? If I were to buy an MB, it will be the 1.83ghz one because thats all I need. I know that there's no real performance difference from the MBP and MB, being that they're both 1.83...Size isnt a factor since I only travel once a year, so it'll mainly be on my desk. Thanks for reading!
