So I just sold my 2.4 GHZ, 250 HD 13" Macbook on Ebay for $1,100.00 plus shipping. I then purchased the new Macbook pro 2.26 ghz 160 HD, receiving the education discount of 100 dollars plus the free ipod touch, which I sold to a family member for 175, essentially making a profit off of upgrading. The slight decrease in processor speed (negligible) and hard drive (insignificant when taking into account I have an external) was totally worth the acquisition of FW, much longer battery life, higher quality screen, etc. Oh, and the whole it's called a Macbook Pro thing. I just wanted to inform anyone who is thinking of making a similar swap that it is totally feasible, especially if you can get the education discount.
