10-13-2008, 12:15 PM #1Which to buy: Macbook or Macbook pro. Opinions?
I need to get a laptop. I'm back and forth between two places a lot and don't want to be cut off from my writing, maintaining my website and getting email, etc. I'm thinking just a macbook is sufficient for me. I would get the 2.4ghz 13" white.
Any reasons why this is not a good choice? They're still well made and reliable? I don't think I will mind at all if it's not as blindingly fast as the Pro; I just want to know if there are any specific reliability issues with the Macbook.
Thanks for any responses!The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by how its animals are treated.

Wait until tomorrow (or later today for me). There is going to be a big announcement about MacBooks maybe even a revamp.

For the tasks you've listed, I think the Macbook would suit you quite nicely. A little RAM upgrade and it should last you a long while. A MBP would be overkill for email, writing, and web-design, so you can save yourself some money and go with the MB.

To give you an idea of perspective I was doing some basic editing a photo in iphoto, running a virtual 2003 server and a virtual XP machine and had itunes running on my MB last night, so for doing email, witting and web design the MB will serve you well.
Wish I had waited two weeks though...
