    does anyone know if I'd be better off getting a macbook pro or I'd be fine with just a macbook, as I am comparing the 2, it seems the difference is ram and an SD slot and the body style... however i get a bigger student discount on the pro but the macbook would be cheaper. any words of wisdom people?

    I can get a 50 dollar student discount on the macbook and 100 on macbook pro, I am looking to do photography and design type stuff.

    Also, I am going to drive the 1.5 hours to delaware to buy it since theres no tax there, and ya know on $1,000 is alot so, that will save me some money.

    Get the MBP. It's worth it as it has 4GB of RAM, let alone better design (IMO), FireWire 800 etc

    it would be nice to mention what you're actually going to use it for. no sense in spending more on a macbook pro if you're not even going to utilize it for anything besides web surfing/email/chat/watching movies/music/typing up notes for class.
