    does anyone know what sets them apart? I'm trying to decide between the 2.4 macbook or the base macbook pro. And they look so similar except for the pro has a bigger screen.

    thoughts?

    dude there are THOUSANDS of threads on this at the moment, not to mention you can go to the apple website and see the specs for yourself

    Go to the apple website and compare the specs. Simple.

    Looking at the new MacBook and comparing it to the new MacBookPro, it seems it's mostly Desktop real-estate and the lack of FW800 port, expresscard slot...

    The apple store is still down. At least for me.

    Why?????, Oh Why...

    And why did they have to take firewire from the macbooks....???? :mad:

    How are people supposed to connect their cameras to iMovie if it only receives video feed trough firewire....??? :confused:

    Well, it seems this no longer will be a requisite, since the iMovie info at apple now implies it, and I quote: "Expanded device support.
    iMovie ’08 supports SD and HD video from tape-based and tapeless camcorders, including Flash-memory, hard disk drives and DVD cams. Even the latest AVCHD cams
    !"

    And I say it implies it because most of the cameras mentioned do not come with firewire connections.

    Could someone confirm this?, I mean, that somehow, iMovie will be able to use video feed to it by USB ports, please?

    Thanks...
