    MacBook Pro has a dedicated graphics card (a 9600GT) on top of the discrete 9400M graphics chipset.

    All MacBook Pro models have backlite keyboards and are intended towards professional usage (ei like Photographers or Movie directors.).

    Also all MacBook Pros have a Firewire port and an Express Slot for your 3G Internet Connection (if you ever need one)

    More questions? Just ask...

    Good way to introduce yourself.

    Try http://www.apple.com

    Straight from the source, and no "crap" like difference in size (which are differentiators).

    There's a difference in size between the MacBook and the MacBook Pro. The MacBook Pro also has a larger screen.

    Hope this helps,
    Bryan

    Wow, you should expect a lot of helpful responses to that question.

    How is screen size not a reason?

    I don't know why anyone would want to help you with that attitude. How about you take a few seconds and click on apple.com and see the differences for yourself?

    It appears you can write, but obviously you can't read or else you would read Apple's website, or any of the billion sites that have copies of the spec sheets.

    ooooo I know

    One has MacBook printed on the smaller screen, and the other has MacBook Pro printed on the larger screen.

    That's the only difference I can think of.
