    Exclamation MacBook-MacBook Pro trade-off
    Hey guys!
    (almost typed hai guise )

    Okay, long story short:

    a former co-worker and I i considering switching laptops... He's getting a new one from his work number 2, and his GF is getting a new one from his job, and his mom needs a new lappy (this is where my MacBook comes in).

    I have a late 2007 MacBook with these specs:
    2.16 Core 2 Duo
    120 GB HDD
    3 GB Ram
    Battery still at full capacity!
    (actually, battery capacity has gone UP a bit )

    His MacBook Pro is:
    15"
    Early 2006
    1.83 Core Duo
    160 GB HDD
    1 GB ram
    ATI X1600 128 MB graphics
    VERY poor battery! Lasts like, 20 mins
    (extra bonus question: what battery do I need for this model? Ive googled like forever but come up empty handed)

    Sho ld i switch with him? Will i see any significally boost in terms of graphics performance?
    (i mainly use my MacBook for Illustrator, Photoshop, iTunes and World Of Warcraft)

    Cheers, Frederik

    - It's like - he was got - they'd just like. It was like so hush hush. They were so... quiet about it. And then the next thing you know...

    I would think twice about making that trade... What if you're not satisfied.
    I bet your friend isn't gonna trade you back.

    You're gonna have to sell it for a lot less than you'd get for the MacBook.

    Just something to think about.

    Well... You're totally right on that note... Hmm, but the again, its only gonna be temporary, as im saving up for a iMac or Mac Pro

    Pros for the trade:
    Backlit keyboard
    Getter graphics
    15" screen
    Brighter screen
    More HDD space

    Cons:
    Have to spend $$$ on a new battery
    Less ram
    Older
