    Seems like a really bad deal. $50 bumps you up to an Alu MB.:rolleyes:

    With a slower processor and no Firewire. Also, I'm more a fan of the polycarbonate case -- it's quite durable and I like the look a bit more than the aluminium.

    I would take the better graphics, faster memory, aluminum unibody, glass trackpad, led backlit display over the plastic anyday. I can live without FireWire.

    That's a mixed bag for me.

    Faster memory and LED backlighting are pluses in my book, but the aluminium case is a minus. As for the glass trackpad and better graphics, neither really matter that much -- I don't game, and I don't care about "multitouch gestures".

    i'm with ya on this one. i see the aluminum casing as a negative too. it can dent/scratch very easily and cannot be replaced. unless, of course, you want to spend $700+ on it. with the polycarbonate, you can get separate pieces replaced if need be for cheap. ie, top case, bottom case, wrist area, bezel, etc.

    2.4 and 2.0 makes barely no difference.
