    Depends on what type of bat you use. I find a good wooden bat does a lot more damage to the MB than the MBP, but aluminum has the opposite effect.

    MacBook Pros are more resilient to phaser blasts in my experience. The energy gets dissipated through the metal although if you're holding it at the time your hands do get rather hot. The MacBooks just melt away under phaser blasts though.

    I've never asked my MacBook to lift anything so I really don't know how strong they are.

    From what I can tell the MacBook Pro seems a lot stronger than my old iBook. Although it's not like I'm reckless with them. My MacBook Pro has yet to gain a dent and really has no scratches, my iBook had many scratches although it was not dented either (It's not like you could dent it though :p).

    I know that the MacBook's plastic casing is more durable, where the casing of the MacBook Pro is less.

    I take more care of my MBP than I did of my MacBook or iBook because it feels more fragile somehow, and a mate of mine managed to dent the lid of his PowerBook quite easily.

    However it is more likely because the MBP is bigger and feels more like a 17" bodyboard than a laptop ;)

    Well my MacBook Pro suffered a dent when i dropped something on it (can't remember if it was my phone or DS lite) . . . .my iBook suffered no dents after having loads of things dropped on it.

    However, the MacBook Pro isn't scratched ; whereas the iBook is horrifically scratched.
