I have never used a mac before, but I am required to have a macbook for my major. From what I have read about macs I am atually very excited about this, but I am on a small budget. At the computer store on campus they have the Aluminum macbook not the pro just the origianal for $849, and the white macbook for $949. I am thinking the aluminum would be more durable, but i am alittle worried about buying a computer they dont make anymore. Any suggestions?
