Hello, I've been lurking around this forum for half a year, and am finally getting my own Macbook. From what I've read, the Blackbook's higher price adds on very little (only 40gb to harddisk), besides the premium color of black. So I'm sort of torn between the low end 2.0ghz 80gb w/ combo drive, or the 2.2ghz macbook with 120gb and super drive. The ability to write stuff into DVD isn't really that big of an issue for me, but is the 200mhz speed bump and extra 40gb of space worth the extra $200? I plan on using it for mainly writing, blogging and casual web surfing, but would probably do some light video editting too, for podcasts and the like. I tried searching the forums for some detailed performance comparison but there wasn't any... just a sea of MBA threads. I live in Malaysia (just above Singapore) , and the local dominating retailer here for Apple (www.machines.com.my) charges $150 more for macbooks. Plus there's no online Apple store. The family plans on getting an iMac as well, so we thought it might be worth asking a cousin in California to buy the imac and the macbook from an Apple store there, then shipping it together via fedex. Does anyone think it's worth it? Thanks, any help would be appreciated. And yay, my first post! Edit: Found comparison chart at macworld, and the difference processing seems minimal...mere seconds for most applications.
