    ALright so this is my first mac coming from a PC and I have a few questions.

    Basics:
    I want a 13 inch mac with at least 2.26 GHz

    Questions:

    Macbook or Macbook Pro?

    Should I wait for any updates?

    2GB RAM or 4GB?
    (Ill only use it for like school work, listening to music, multiple tab son browsers, downloads, messenger, skype...so like every day tasks little video editing etc.)

    any other advice you guys can give me?

    I would wait as the MacBook Pro update is just around the corner. Then you can choose between current models with discounted price or get a just released one. 4GB of RAM is becoming a standard now so, you might want to have that, but upgrading RAM is very easy tasks so I recommend you buying it from 3rd party and do the upgrade yourself, it'll save you some money.

    Don't hesitate to PM or just add my MSN (kriz_u_93@hotmail.com) if you have more questions :cool:

    A Macbook will be fine for the tasks you listed.
