    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.

    How much better is the screen? Also will that extra
    CPU
    matter at all?

    The only reason I'm considering the MacBook is I'm
    going
    to
    eventually get a bigger harddrive and a 250
    would
    probly
    be big enough for
    me

    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.

    experianced with computers but was just looking for an opinom besides mine. Thanks
