Im not sure if i want to shell out this. But i do want a macbook or macbook pro which will last me for a couple of years beacuse they are a bit more expensive than windows PC/laptops. Just trying to decide between the two types, I am looking for a replacement to my desktop just now cause its very old. But im still undecided which is best for me to go for. Would it be worth spending the extra cash in the long term? Im not too fussed about hard drive cos its easy to buy an external which is probably what im going to use to transport some stuff on the Macs at college to my Mac.
Hum I don't know anything about sound production but I can't imagine that it's going to be graphic intensive.

You also mentioned that you want something portable for college.

I'm a Graphic Designer and I'm perfectly happy with my MB, and I keep my MBP at home as my desktop replacement.

You are right about the HDD. You can pretty much purchase these thing from a 3rd party retailer instead of paying apples ridiculous 400% mark ups for memory >_>".

In any case I would go with the MB and just deck it out yourself. First two things I bought was 4GB low latency ram RAM and a 320 GB HDD 7200 RPM. Together it cost me less than 300 bucks with shipping.
