    Hello I would like some quick input. I'm sure many of you will find the answer quite intuitive but I as a potential switcher would appreciate the advice.

    So which one?
    Blackbook with 2.4 processor and 2 gigs of ram, or the lower end new Macbook (the one with the new casing and such).

    Right now i'm leaning towards the Blackbook because of the superior processing power, matte screen, and the large price drop.

    I don't really game much, I'll use it for photoshop here and there and music software such as Ableton Live. I would also like my purchase to last me at least 2-3 years.

    Can someone please give me a push in any direction? Thanks.

    superior proc power? dont buy into the ghz is the only measure of speed...

    If your looking to get a blackbook, I am selling my last generation blackbook with upgraded ram (to 4GB) and with added accessories and software. Shoot me a PM and I can tell you all the details. I am wanting to buy an iMac which is why I want to sell. I was going to write you a PM but it seems like you have them blocked.
