I will be buying my first Apple Computer in the next month or so. I have perused these forums for a while and I know these types of questions often annoy you all, so I will keep the question simple. I will buy refurbished and will buy either the 2.4 MacBook Pro for $1349 or the 2.4 Black MacBook for $1099 (the extra $100 is worth the black and upgraded HD to me). Regardless, I want this computer to function adequately for a minimum of the next 3 years. What say you? What are the major benefits of the MacBook Pro over the MacBook? Speed-wise, am I right in saying both would function about the same? Is the main benefit to the Pro the clearly superior video card, or am I missing other things as well? Thanks for your patience and guidance in this process.
