First, let me list my bona fides
I'm a fairly recent Mac convert. My wife has a Macbook (not the most recent batch, but the last version before it)
I'm saving up for a notebook myself (currently use a three year old eMac)
I have been using and maintaining computers for nearly 15 years, mostly PCs, but some Unix background as well.
I will be buying a Macbook. No Pro for me. The price differential is significant, and the only bonus I can see is the video card - that dedicated video RAM is definitely tempting - but the screens are too large for real portability, and the Macbook does everything I would want it to do.
As for the games you listed, I might be tempted to go with the Pro. Sims 2 is pretty intense, graphically.
