I've been waiting for what seems forever for the Studio XPS line to come out ever since I found out about the M1330 (and all it's problems.) Now that the SXPS is out, I read about all the problems and I no longer like it. In the mean time, Apple came out with these two great looking, sexy laptops and now I can't decide between the macbook and the macbook pro after using both in store. So I'm trying to decide between the 2.4ghz MB and the 2.66ghz MBpro 2.4 aluminum macbook: + about $800 cheaper than pro - doesn't offer a high resolution - the screen/color unevenness sucks - have to pay extra to upgrade to 4GB of ram (I don't trust myself working with computers just yet) 2.66 aluminum macbook pro: + more screen resolution + less eye strain if i use as desktop replacement? + two graphics cards (do I really need the second one?) + bigger stock hard drive + no need to upgrade to 4GB ram - with student discount here; around $800 more than the 2.4ghz MB - a little heavier? - harder to carry around? After looking at the two screens on the mb and mbp I've decided that I CAN tell that the mb screen sucks compared to the pro, but I can't justify the $700 increase in price just yet...I'm indecisive. Also, I'm in love with the new apple track pads, it's so hard to use any other now. I'm basically looking for people to tell me it's okay to splurge and somewhat "future proof" my laptop instead of conserve on a laptop that will probably stay with me till it breaks... Also, I heard that there are build problems with both models such as uneven back-lighting, The headphone port being static-y, Wi-Fi isn't up to par, etc? Can anyone ease my mind off these problems? EDIT I'll be using this computer for everything that a college student would use it for and more, I'm looking to use it in school (word processing, presentations, etc.) Also at home as a sort of desktop replacement everything else leisure like listening to music, CD ripping, a little gaming, web browsing, a little photoshop, multitasking I know everyone says you'll need a pro for audio/video editing, movie making, etc but what if I don't do any of that; but I just want the most fastest I can get now without worrying that it'll be obsolete two or even one year ahead?
