    Advantages:

    - Larger, better display(viewing angle, clarity)
    - MUCH better graphics
    - Sturdier case, all aluminum
    - Looks much better IMO
    - Backit keyboard(+ no chicklet style keys)

    Disadvantages:

    - Slower processor
    - 3.3GB max RAM (I believe...)

    You should also know that you probably won't be able to run the next Version of Mac OS X: Snow Leopard on a Core Duo MacBook, since it requires 64 Bit.
