    I have never owned a Mac before, but I am sure my next computer will change that. What is the difference between a Macbook and a Macbook Pro?

    Here's Apple's help on that. This page shows all three MacBook models side-by-side:

    There are a few other ongoing threads discussing this but IMO the biggest differences are that the Pro has firewire, a screen that looks better from odd viewing angles, a better video card, an express card slot, and potentially a backlighted keyboard (depending on which MacBook model you were looking at).

    Thank you very much. That side by side is exactly what I needed.
