If you were to have a new MB and the current MBP side by side, wouldn't they be exactly the same performance wise? Other than the color and lack of a few ports on the MB, the spec sheet on Apple's site makes them sound identical (assuming that both have the 2.26MHz processor). Am I wrong in thinking this? If I am, what are the benefits of the MBP (besides the obvious; aluminum, SD/FW slot)? And if comparing the two, which would be the better choice?
