OK so I have already put my flame-resistant gloves on, in defence against the "search" repostes.... I'd decided to move to Mac OS earlier this year, after long-admiring the whole deal. With the launch of the new unibody MB & MBP, now is the time for me to buy a machine. The problem is I can't make my mind up between MacBook 2.4, or MacBook Pro. I won't be using the machine for any hugely intensive apps, and I don't play games. As either of the above choices would be my PRIMARY home computer, and I don't plan on buying an external screen, my main concern comes down to screen-size. I have a 14" laptop PC from work, but only travel around once or twice every 2~3 weeks. The portability-factor of the smaller 13.3" MB screen doesn't initially appear to be that much of a plus for me (as it will very rarely leave the house), although I can't help but feel I don't really NEED to lay out for the extra grunt of the MBP and larger HDD etc (don't store movies/videos on the computer and all my music is on an external HDD & iPod). Before anyone say - "ah yes, but you only get firewire with the MBP", i've never owned any device with firewire, USB2 has been adequate for my needs. I know there's the (strong) argument of buy the best you can to give some degree of "future-proofing" and offset the need to upgrade further down the line, but it really does seem that apart from the smaller screen, a 2.4 MB would be fine for me. I've spent a couple of months trawling through similar comments & threads on this site, and understand the key benefits/drawbacks of both machines & the similar self-arguments many have gone through to arrive at their decision, but I still can't make my mind up if I'd be completely "happy" with the smaller screen of the MB. Oh, and yes, I've seen both in the metal at an Apple Store. Still didn't help! comments appreciated.
