Ok, I bought (or rather, my parents bought me) an ibook in 2005. Unfortunately, it just died about 4 months ago. I've been using my wonderful boyfriends computer since then, but I'm in school and I really need a new laptop to cart around to classes. I'm in school full-time, so I'm pretty broke, and I can't decide if I am being incredibly silly about which computer to get. I know I don't need a MBP, I am just using this compy for the internet/email, for typing/printing/saving papers, and for pictures, etc. I think the aluminum macbooks look so much sleeker and prettier than the white one. Are they actually better computers? And I'd love the illuminated keyboard and whatnot, but is it that computer any better than the other aluminum one? Help!
