    Hi. I've had a Macbook now for 4 months, and i really life it. I've thought about it, and feel that i could really do with the added features that the MBP has to offer, mainly the screen size and Illuminated Keyboard. The Graphics would help as well, as i play the odd games here and there that the Macbook cannot handle.

    My question is, i take my Macbook with me everywhere. If i buy a MBP, is it going to be a lot bigger and heavier then my Macbook, to lug around. I'm starting college soon, and will be taking my laptop with me.

    Thanks.

    Hmmm, kind of depends on the game and I think quite a few people in the 'gaming on a MB' thread in the games forum wouldn't see eye to eye on you on this one.

    On the whole portability issue/which one is best to lug around college issue, there are loads of threads that discuss this, so try a search - I'm sure people will chip in, but you'll probably get more info from these.

    It does sound like you fancy getting a MBP though.

    The MBP is bigger (footprint-wise) but it's only a few ounces heavier than the MB.

    Do some searches on comparisons; there are a lot of photos floating around comparing the two.

    However:
    and

    The MBP is slightly slimmer, a tad deeper, and barely wider. There isn't a large difference, but in some cases that can be the difference between fitting into an existing backpack/bag you have, and not fitting. I know that's the reason I got a 15" MBP over a 17" (the latter won't fit into most normal messenger/shoulder bags). MBP's are pretty light considering their specs though; finding a similarly priced Dell/Lenovo is easy, but they're generally a bit thicker and heavier (Lenovo's are great though; the keyboards especially).
