    Question Opinions of what MacBook to buy - MacBook or MacBook Pro?
    Hello,

    I am planning to purchase an Apple Notebook. I have identified two that i could possibly buy noticeably the normal white MacBook and the Silver metal MacBook Pro (the same size version).

    Which one should i go for? I'm searching for opinions.

    I personally like the chassis of the White MacBook because its plastic and feels smooth and personally i like white better.

    However, the Pro looks like a better option in terms of power/specs etc.. Also, its a metal silver chasing so it won't get dirty easily as would for the white macbook.

    Do both of them have the bootcamp feature?
    When will the white MacBook get dis-continued in production?
    WHat's the next generation of MacBooks?

    Thanks in advance

    All intel macs can run bootcamp

    I would go with your gut feeling and buy the white Macbook. I have one and I love it

    - Do both of them have the bootcamp feature?
    Yes, both of them can be used as a regular boring PC.

    - When will the white MacBook get dis-continued in production?
    No one knows, only Apple knows and they are not telling us about it.

    - What's the next generation of MacBooks?
    They have recently been updated with core i5 and core i7. The plastic macbook still have core 2 duo though, but with a bump in clock speed and new graphics.

    For my money and the specs, I went with the white Macbook. It has stayed quite clean. I've had it since December and still am very pleased with it. (switched from a XP Netbook)

    The 13-inch MacBook Pros are also core 2 duo.
