same old question. but I decided to put a little spice in it! Mac Book Pro: ($1497.00) 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB 250GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm Mac Book: ($1447.00) 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB 320GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm The only difference: Mac book is $50 less, no backlit keyboard and 320GB SATA drive. Mac book pro is $50 more, backlit keyboard, 250GB SATA drive, and aluminum body. Oh, Im buying an iPad also, so with the $50 i could buy $50 of apps. --------OR-------- should i go macbook air?
