Are you talking brand new computers or used? If you're talking new computers only...Apple discontinued MacBook models at least a few months ago. So now only MacBook Pros are available.

The MacBook Pros are available with more powerful processors than the MacBook. Also the MacBook (white and black) only came in 13" but the Pro was 13" 15" and 17". Also you have more room to upgrade on it. If you can afford an old Pro go for it, because it will stay compatible with certain programs and OSX updates longer than an average MacBook would. You can check out <MacBenchmarks to compare the specific models you are looking into so you can find how close or far apart the two models you are looking at are in terms of processing power etc. My CoreDuo 2Ghz MacBook has fully upgraded RAM a bigger HDD and is running Snow and it only scored 2525(you can download the app and run a system check) and a MBP would score at least @ 3k...
