    I'm trying to decide between a MBP and a MB, and besides the screen size I can't really tell the difference between the two. Can someone paint me a picture as to what the differences are. Thanks

    256mb integ+512mb dedicated gpu
    super fast processor
    storage capability(although with mb u can get bigger aftermarket drives to equal it)
    firewire 800(backward comp. 400 with adapter)
    most importantly bigger penis status at ur local starbucks.

    Graphics - firewire - size/weight - screen size - price

    wider viewing angles on the MBP.
    larger top mounted speakers vs hidden under the hinge.

    Prior to 1992 you could not compete in the Olympic games with a MacBook Pro whereas you could with a MacBook. However, amateur status is no longer a requirement. Happy notebooking!

    All kidding aside, they pretty much said it all.

    Larger screen
    Dedicated + Integrated Graphics vs. just Integrated
    Faster CPU
    Large HDD which is changable
    Firewire
    Expresscard Slot
    Only high end MacBook has backlit keyboard
    Heavier
    Speakers

    Seriously doubt it will have any affect of that certain part of the male anatomy. It's a MacBook Pro - not Enzyte.

    Wider viewing angles? How so I thought there were both the same type of screen just not the same size.

    The screens are vastly different. On the normal MB, and side to side viewing angle is great, but the up/down angle is horrible :( If the screen is tilted too far back it goes to "negative" colors very quickly.

    Also, the Pro screen has much deeper/richer blacks than that of the MB's.
