my first time to consider a mac. i can't decide to buy wether macbook or macbook pro. as far as i know the difference is from the graphic performance. but i really have no idea how big difference it will be to me. i've already have a laptop with Windows and Linux on it. So I will not do much gaming with a macbook. Actually I'm thinking to remove Linux entirely from this laptop, and either install it on macbook or just use mac os as alternative( since its close to linux enough to me). I do lots of programmings, and maybe very soon will come up with some graphics programming. And even more in the one year. Beside, I need to use Photoshop and really a little 3-D design processing(never about creating animation or movie, just play for fun and learn). Another reason I want to buy it is because my old laptop is not so suitable to move around, eg. taking to the uni and giving presentations. At this point, maybe the macbook is better to me, as I don't much like any laptop bigger than 13 inch. guys I need ur suggestion, plz. for many reasons such as price and mobility I prefer macbook a lot than mbp. but I really don't want it comes to be totally useless when I do some graphic programming or poor little graphic processing on it. if anyone has similar situation to me, plz let me have some advise.
