I am upgrading my Black book from 06, because it has every low specs because this was the first chip that Apple made in their laptops, and Apple told me that If I got a computer that is even 3 years older it will be way way way faster, because my intel chip isn't great. It's not even C2D. and it's only 2GHz. So this is what I am going to do.. Either buy the Macbook PRO 13 INCH or the Macbook. They both are the same internally except for the RAM... Will the macbook pro last me longer because the RAM? and is it a good computer compared to the OTHER NOTEBOOK COMPUTERS. Not just macs, I am talking about the whole world of CONSUMER computers, does it have things many other laptops don't? (backlight keyboard, graphics, things like that) the ONLY thing I am concerned with is thre GHz speed, is 2.4GHz good?
