What are some major differences and similarities with the aluminum MacBook and MacBook Pro? Is the MacBook Pro faster then the MacBook? I returned a defective MacBook to Apple and am planning to rebuy another laptop from them. (I can't stand Windows.) I need some advice to which is actually meant for me. I will be using the laptop mainly for school. (email, homework, photoshop, surfing the web) and possibly some minor gaming, perhaps Spore =).
