    Either will work. Biggest issue for you is the video card, but it should be fine.

    Do you really need those extra 400MHz?
    I suppose having the bigger hard drive would be a plus but you can upgrade that, although you can't upgrade the processor.
    Hell, if you have the money go for the 2.4GHz.

    Oh btw, there are probably already 409174+ threads on this topic, some with almost the same exact title.

    with the 2.4 the gpus are identical to the 2.0 model the only real difference is hdd space oh and you get a backlit keyboard if that matters to you. I recommend the 2.0

    As a college student, I did a lot of research on the Macbooks, and waited for almost a year to get the new 2.4 Macbook.

    I had decided on the 2.0 at first to save my parents $250. However, my awesome parents convinced me that the backlit keyboard would help a lot when I have to study in the dark library, during lectures, and when my roommate wants to sleep and I still have work to do.

    Also, down the road, the extra 400 MHz might make a difference as I have to make this laptop last for 5 years. So for a long term investment, the 2.4 Macbook might be the best bet.
