Hi, I have a chance to get a aluminum macbook 2.0ghz for $800 and wanted to see if I would be satisfied with it as compared to my macbook pro. I figure I can sell the mbp and make a little cash. I know the differences as in portability, screen estate, video card, lack of firewire, etc? How about performance? Would I notice a substantial drop in performance? I generally use the laptops for internet, watching movies, burning dvds, photoshop, website stuff. It does stink that I have an older mini dv camcorder. Is there a workaround to get it to work with the macbook without firewire? Thanks so much!
