I currently have a macbook and I bought it mainly for the size. I put it in my bag and I take it everywhere with me (almost)

Im upgrading to a macbook pro (for free) but im just wondering, am I going to find it heavy and a pain to lug around with me? Is it going to make much difference to me compared to my macbook?

The macbook I have is the 2.16ghz model. the macbook pro I will be getting is the new 2.4ghx model. I believe the newer model macbooks have better battery life and I know what the macbook pro is more powerfull so I would prasume the battery would not last as long. Will this mean that the battery life of my new macbook pro will be about the same as my current macbook?


Thanks

Quite frankly, you are the only person who can answer that.

its funny, because before I got my macbook pro I kept hearing that they were big (and the seemed large in the store compared to the macbooks) but when I finally got one, brought it home, and compared it to my old windows laptop (which was a really really junky $300 laptop) the MBP was actually thinner and slightly smaller. Who wold have guessed, 100 times the power, and slightly smaller, lol. So yes, they are bigger and heavier than the macbooks, but at least IMHO they are smaller and thinner than windows laptops of equal power. (or maybe mine was just big because it was really cheap...)
