    Hi,

    I'm looking for a more powerful machine to replace my WhiteBook, and I can't seem to decide between a unibody, or classic 15".

    I plan to use Photoshop, Contribute, and Dreamweaver, plus some iMovie and NFS Carbon.

    Will the ClassicBook suffice, or should I go for a unibody just for the "future-proof" factor?

    If your whitebook has an Intel processor with Leopard, then your good to go for 1 or 2 more years of use. Save money for a snow leopard machine. Going to unibody isn't going to make future proofing... Only the case change.

    Both the Unibody or Discrete models will suffice on what you want to do.

    You cannot "future-proof" here. In 2 years, regardless if you have the unibody or latest discrete model, it would be considered outdated

    Have you already upgraded your ram ? added an external display ?
    then if you really want to upgrade then the classic offers you the matte screen option and integrated firewire ports 400+800, if that's not important to you then the unibody is the way to go.
