    I know there might be a lot of these questions on these forums, but I kinda wanted your opinions, for you more hardware knowing people. I cannot choose between the 2.4GHz New Al MacBook or 2.4GHz New Al MacBook Pro. This is what I'll be doing with the machine:
    • Photoshop CS4
    • - Smaller images around 1440px by 900px @ 150dpi
    • - Larger images around 3000px by 3000px @ 200dpi
    • - Lots of fiters (Bluring, extruding, and rendering)
    • Dreamweaver CS4
    • - 5 websites
    • - about 8 pages open at a time
    • Aperture 2
    • - JPEG Images @ 3072px x 2304px @ 480dpi
    • - 200+ Images
    • Final Cut Express
    • - Small videos
    • - 640 x 480 videos
    • GarageBand
    • - mid-sized projects

    Those are the larger things I will be doing with the notebook. I figured the larger screen and better graphics would be batter, but I'd like your opinion.

    Sounds like you could get more satisfaction out of a MBP because of the type of editing you do on it.

    It sounds like it will come down to the money, if you have it, I would go for the MBP. If not, you may have to consider the MB.
