Hi, so I've been looking for a new notebook for a couple of weeks now and have almost settled for a dell vostro 1320 or 1220 but yesterday I went to a friend's house and fell in love with his new macbook pro. I don't have that much money to buy a new macbook pro, my budget is $1.000 tops, so first I went into the apple web page and found this macbook http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook/?aid=AIC-WWW-NAUS-K2-BYO-WHICHMAC-MACBOOK-13-INCH and I was like wow this would be great, but then I started thinking well what's the difference between this one and the macbook pro which if I select it with the same HDD goes to $1.249. So i started looking in the refurbished section and found this macbook pro for $999 http://store.apple.com/us/product/FB990LL/A?mco=MTA4MzIzMzA and finally to get all of my options I went into ebay and found this macbook http://cgi.ebay.com/APPLE-MACBOOK-13-3-CORE2DUO-2-16G-2G-250GB-WF-BL-DVDRW_W0QQitemZ160375127909QQcmdZViewItemQQptZApple_Laptops?hash=item25571a3f65 So my questions are: 1) I know macbook exceed in performance a normal laptop, but will I notice the difference between one of the dell notebooks with 4gb of ram and one of the macs with just 2gb? 2) I remember reading somewhere that you could buy a new trackpad and put it in the old macbooks in order to get the 4 finger gesture feauters (which btw I would really love) Is that really possible or did I misunderstand? Oh and in the same topic how do I know if those I posted have the 4 finger function? 3) My main reason into upgrading my notebook is to connect it to my Sony 32" LCD and watch 720p movies, what cable should I need to buy in order to do that? And will display better or worse than if I moved the files to my PS3? 4) Oh and finall I almost forgot, what's the main difference between a macbook and a macbook pro? What would you guys recommend me to do? I dunno if to trust much the ebay seller but I think I won't be hving trouble with an apple refurbished one right? Sorry for the long story but I wanted to give you guys as much details as I could. Thank you so much in advance.
