As a first time Mac user, I'm really having a hard time deciding between the two. I'm med student mainly purchasing a MacBook for my study, music, little to no gaming, browsing, documents, Adobe etc. I know the choice is up to me but your opinions are greatly appreciated. Just to give you an idea of what my old laptop is: 1.73 GHz, 504mb of RAM. YIKES! Either way, this is definitely going to be a huge upgrade for me.
