    I am looking to buy a MacBook soon and change over from PC but I dont know what one I should get.

    The white 13-inch MacBook $999
    2.1GHz
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    1GB DDR2 Memory
    120GB hard drive1
    Intel GMA X3100 graphics

    or the new aluminum ones that just came out

    2.0GHz $ 1,249.00
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB DDR3 Memory
    160GB hard drive1
    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics

    or

    2.4GHz $ 1,499.00
    Intel Core 2 Duo
    2GB DDR3 Memory
    250GB hard drive1
    NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics

    I dont have the money to get a MacBook Pro otherwise I would get that.
    But I plan on just surfing the net e-mailing, listening to music and I plan on getting Aperture 2.

    if you dont care about the new design the white MacBook is a good deal.

    compared to the 2.0 GHz model the 2.4 GHz MacBook only has 400 MHz more CPU speed which would only be an advantage for applications using full CPU load, 90 GB of HDD space and a backlit keyboard.

    What are you going to be using it for? Any gaming, I would go with the newer machine.

    Other than that, the main difference is in firewire, the screen, metal enclosure and a better graphics card.

    Just see if that is worth 250 for you.
