That really leaves the the other two models. I plan on upgrading the specs (2 gb ram and 160 gb HD) of whatever I get down the line when i have more money, but right now i really only have just enough money to for one of the white models. I could essentially get the cheaper 2.0 ghz model and a macbook protection plan for the same price as the 2.16ghz macbook. I am just wondering how much of a distance .16 ghz really is? If you guys say there is a distance, I will wait a couple more weeeks and save. If not, I will probably go to the apple store either tomorrow or sunday and buy the 2.0ghz mac with plan. I am coming from a 17inch 1.9ghz power pc imac g5 with 1.5gb of ram. Is the 2.0ghz macbook going to outclass and outperform my old rig? How much of a neccessity is the apple care plan for the macbook? I got the plan for my imac two years ago and the imac has never hiccupped, frozen, crashed, or anything that would think i needed to call apple or take it in to the apple store. Thanks for your time.
