I've been searching around these threads about the macbook and macbook pros. I've been thinking of getting a new apple laptop this summer to replace my 3-4 year old 15'' XPS laptop. I think I may be on a tight budget during the summer. I could probably make up to $2000-2500 by the end of summer depending on how much I go home with at the end of college. I hope I could finish the school year with $900-1000 left. I hear people say get the macbook pro for better screen. I mean is the macbook unibody screen that bad? I have a 1 year old black macbook that I would use for school next year. I usually just email, music, surf the web and watch movies (not as much since Blu-ray fan and have ps3) and no gaming (could change my mind if Starcraft 2 actually comes out and lives up to its tremendous hype). I do enjoy the bigger screen as I have this XPS but I don't think I am willing to spend $1800-2000 on the macbook pro. That's the other thing, people say get the older macbook pro instead of the new one. I mean are the unibodies really that bad?
