I need to buy a laptop for my college bound daughter in the next few weeks, and although I would prefer to buy her a MBP, I will either buy her a PC laptop or, perhaps, an MB, unless new MBPs are at least announced by the end of February. When both are maxed out on RAM and equipped with the same fast hdd, the price of the low-end MBP is $825 higher than that of a mid-range MB. Here is the rundown: Base Price (edu): $1199 for MB (no sales tax), $1799+5% sales tax for MBP 4GB RAM (third party): $99 for MB, $99 for MBP 200 GB/7200 rpm hdd: $180 for MB (third party, no sales tax), $247 +5% sales tax for MBP (wold buy from Apple since an MBP hd installation is not user friendly) Apple Care: $183 for MB, $239 for MBP ___________________________________________ Grand Total: $1661 for MB, $2486.30 for MBP Is the MBP really worth it, when the only real difference is the video card and screen size? My daughter does play WoW occasionally, and I hear that MB is OK for Wow. I'm having a hard time justifying a MBP, unless a new model comes out at the same price point as the existing one, given that the MB won't be upgraded for a few months after the MBP (based on past release history).
