between this one

MacBook - Apple Store (U.K.) (http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook?mco=MTAyNTQzMzg)


and this one? - the cheaper one.

MacBook Pro - Apple Store (U.K.) (http://store.apple.com/uk/browse/home/shop_mac/family/macbook_pro?mco=MTM3NDc0NDI)

same processor, same graphics card, bigger hard drive on macbook

confused!

Worth just under 100 more?

for me personally yes BUT the regular macbook is a great product and it's not like any of the fancy extras on the other one will enable you to do more with the product.

The macbook normal is the most popular computer product theyve ever produced (I think I remember) so it's not as if it's a bad choice in any way shape or form.

If the design and extra features leave you cold or luke warm at best then save the money, buy the macbook and use the extra dosh to buy iWork :D

If I was in the position to get the more expensive one, I definitley would :yes: I do actually prefer the design of the white one, however I do think the pro would be much more rugged and fits in with the rest of the mac line :yes:

This (http://theappleblog.com/2009/06/10/value-shootout-white-13-macbook-vs-unibody-13-macbook-pro/) article is quite helpful. :yes: We use the white macbooks in college and they're sturdy and really solid feeling, if you're on a tight budget then the extra money could be spent on software, or a carry case etc. :yes:

I looked at both and the pro it had to be simply as I needed to add in a lot of peripherals and the original Macbook didn't have enough ports

one of the reasons i like apple is that i like the way they look- i may be into gadgets but i'm still a girlie! :tongue:

I guess the only way i'll know is to go and have a look myself. :thumbsup:

One thing on my MacBook Pro that I couldn't do without is the backlit keyboard. Oftentimes I find myself using my Macbook Pro in a nighttime situation without much ambient lighting. The backlit keyboard is a lifesaver for me then. :worship:

and the handy thing is that spending 1000's in the apple store wouldn't be out of the normal- so the bank wouldn't even notify him!! haha
