I am having a very difficult time deciding which one to get. The price difference is $188. I made this chart (in notepad.exe ) of the differences between the two, what makes which one better. I still am having a hard time deciding. Oh, how I wish I could afford the 17" 1920x1200 MBP.

What do you think I should get? I will be using this when I go back to college. Note taking, mostly. Probably some iWork here and there. The rest would just be fun and games.
