    Specs:
    Black Macbook C2D 2GHz 3GB RAM 250GB HD iPhone 4 iPad 3G
    The second one as Core 2 Duo is a newer chip. It offers 10-15% improvement at the same clockspeed. Plus, it has the added advantage of having a maximum RAM capacity of 3GB as opposed to the Core Duo's 2GB. This is really a no brainer if they're the same price.

    Specs:
    Aluminium Macbook 2.4 Ghz 4GB RAM, SSD 24" Samsung Display, iPhone 4, iPad 2
    The Black one can burn DVDs though, the white model will read and write CDs, but can only read DVDs.
    I'd still go for the Core2Duo myself - the CoreDuos were very buggy...

    Can't believe I missed the drive difference. Though I guess if DVD burning isn't that important, then it makes no difference.
