i like the MB because of the price + portability. i had a 15" PB before it and that thing was a pain to carry around to classes and whatnot.wowowowanimac!! said:are there any people who would rather have a macbook over a macbook pro? i personally would opt for the macbook pro
Its all a matter of preference. I personally think the MBP is much nicer looking than the MBs. Not to say that the MBs are ugly or anythingxfiftyfour said:i like the MB because of the price + portability. i had a 15" PB before it and that thing was a pain to carry around to classes and whatnot.
i also kind of grew tired of the aluminum look. i mean, it beats some of the pc laptops, but it's kind of a boring case. the black MB is *hot* looking.
yeah, i definitely agree that it's a matter of preference. i wasn't trying to say that the MB looked better than the MBP as a fact, just stating my preference.viccles said:Its all a matter of preference.

I'm currently considering doing the exact same thingender78 said:I have the MBP but am also considering buying the Mac Pro. I bought the MBP as my high end machine. I would consider selling the MBP and downgrading to the MB and taking the downgrade $$$ to go towards the purchase of the MP. That said, I really like the MBP and even though I dont "need" the power of the MBP on the road [my MBP currently almost never travels] I don't think that I will
get rid of it. I'm not a gamer so I really dont "need" the MBP, it does however run very well with Aperture and that is one of the main reason that I bought the MBP.
This sort of thing always bothers me a bit intellectually. Photoshop is one of those big applications that, if we're honest, does little more than go through incremental updates every few years. So a true comparison if Rosetta weren't part of the equation would probably be "only buy a MacBook if you want last year's MacBook Pro performance for Photoshop". Are you trying to tell me that last year the technology wasn't in place for digital manipulation of images? Even three or four years ago professionals were using Photoshop completely happily under OS X - is a MacBook slower than the Macs of three or four years ago?Well, it really depends on what your going to use it for. If your not going to do anything too graphics intensive (PhotoShop, 3D Animation, Games, etc) then the MacBook is perfect for you. Otherwise, I strongly reccomend the MacBook Pro.
