We had been in the market for a laptop for a couple of weeks. After reading the rumors that Apple was going to be coming out with some new computers, I decided to hold off and see what they might introduce. After yesterdays new MacBook release, I was less than excited about it. I like the fact that it had better battery life - but that was not a total deal breaker since the older MacBook had decent battery life as it was. The bigger hard drive does not mean that much to me since I'm thinking of throwing in a 500GB drive anyway. It is nicer, but not that much nicer. I had my heart set on a 13" MBP - but it is extra money that I really shouldn't be spending. So today, I was looking through Apple's refurbs and came across the MacBook with the 9400M (which also has FW, which I kind of need right now) for $749. I thought to myself, a Mac laptop for $749!?! - and impulsively pulled the trigger. Now, I'm kind of wondering if I would have been better off spending the extra $$$ on a MBP... I'm sure when the MacBook gets here, I will like it. I guess I'm just worried since it seems like here on the forums there are lots of threads about cracked cases and other problems that don't seem to be found on the MBP forum. So, I'm wondering if I should just be happy that I got a great deal by getting a $749 Mac laptop, and relax - or if I should consider upgrading to a MBP based on durability alone? The laptop will be used primarily by my wife for studying and, when available, by me for work when I don't feel like sitting in front of my iMac. My wife will be taking it with her to work and school all of the time - so I would imagine it will receive its fair share of (hopefully gentle) thrashing. Is the MBP's durability so much better that I should be considering spending the extra $$?
