OK guys, my question is a little bit silly, cos the answer is probably "it depends on your personal preferences", but maybe you can help me out, (or at least share some ideas ) I want to get a new laptop, and until Saturday (when I walked into an Apple store) my mind was pretty much made up: MacBook Pro, 2gb - will do everything I need, and have the freedom & flexibilility to play most games too. I dont play that many games, but the freedom to play what I want is very nice, and my favourite games are strategy/tactics ones (ie. total war rome) that dont usually make it to console. And then I walked into the Apple store, and instantly fell in love with the blackbook. So chic, sleek, and damned pretty. Is pretty much comparable to the MBP, except for screen (not concerned) and the graphics card. So guys, what would you do: go for the pretty macbook and perhaps buy a console for games, or keep it all in one silver unit and go the macbook Pro?
