    hi guys! first of all HI! my name is bru , from spain and im buying a macbook this week.

    i've found a macbook 7,1 (white) with specs:

    2,4 ghz (p8600)
    2 gb ram ddr3
    geforce 320m
    10 hours battery

    VS

    a late 2008 macbook pro unibody with :
    2,4 ghz (p8600)
    2gb ram ddr3
    gefroce 9400m +9600gt
    and aprox 4 hours battery....

    for the same price!



    im gonna use it to produce music.. so the screen plays a lot in my decision but i've seen videos like this one :

    where the white macbook is much faster than the macbook pro that tells me to get the white one cos it's 2 years of upgrades and is much faster!


    any help here pls??? what are ur opinions???


    thanks a lot!

    The white MacBook is the better deal, but if you need Firewire, for audio interfaces for example, the MBP is the better choice.

    You're right, I thought you meant the 13" MBP, which has no dedicated GPU.

    With better deal, I meant battery life and the smaller package. But for you the MBP seems to be the better deal, as you also have a bigger display (15"), thus more resolution to work with. And the Firewire interface of course, which will come in handy for external scratch HDDs or audio modules.
