I got a MacBook Pro 2.4GHz for the backlit kb, screen quality and resolution. However, I am not sure if I can justify its price at $2000+. I bought it and still can return it for a full refund. If I get the MacBook 2.4GHz also with a backlit kb, I save $400. I do not need a firewire port or the express slot of the macbook pro. However, the screen and resolution is great on the MacBook Pro, which are features I'll miss. What would you do? I am basically using this notebook at home at the moment for online assignments and general browsing. Which do you guys prefer?
