Alright all I am asking is, is the price between a top of the line macbook, and a macbook pro justified in the spec. bumps one receives over the other? Macbook 2.4 with 4 gb of ram and apple care: $1817(student discount) Macbook pro 2.53 250Gb HD, and apple care: $2493(student discount) I dont have to pay tax on either. The difference is $675 I'm not debating which one is better for what purpose or for what I need. Just solely on what you get for your dollar. Thanks for your CONSTRUCTIVE and PERTINENT feedback.
