I think the mbp is worth it just for the battery, fire wire and better display

13" MBP 2.26. Without a doubt. As was stated: better battery life, Firewire, and a better display. If they are the same price, why even consider the Macbook? Get the Pro.

No, a 140Mhz difference between the two will not make a huge difference.

Anandtech looked at the display difference between the unibody MBP and the "old" unibody MB:

I suspect that since the 13" MBP uses a similar quality display as its larger siblings, the difference between the MB and the MBP displays would be comparable to what is described in the review.

Swapping out the HD on the MBP is simple. And 320GB hard disks can be had for less than $100, should you ever need to expand.
