I have nothing to back this up... but from the limited number of people I've talked to, there seem to be more problems with the Macbook than Macbook Pro. The Macbook looks and feels like a toy. A couple of hundred dollars is a lot, yes, but in the long run, wouldn't you rather own the nicer computer? (easy to flame this opinion) The Macbook Pro is just "nicer" (yes, that's an opinion) If you're wondering which one to get--- just get the low end Macbook Pro!!!! There!!! Now 1/2 of the threads in this forum will disappear! Flame away. You're welcome to your opinion. I'll respect it.
