Well, the same question applies here as it does with all cases like this:

What do you need your computer for and what do you plan to use it for?

Okay. Does the computer you currently have do all of that and do it satisfactory enough for you?
If so, then there is no need for a new computer.
If not and there is a problem with your current setup, then get the MacBook.

you have to pay extra to get it in black though. my friends mac book pro shuts down randomly, and it gets incredably hot too... I reckon it could be a problem in a years time when bits start to expire.

my current computer is PC, yes it does everything that i need ... i got my wife ibook g4, for 2006 new year... (intel version wasn't out yet) so i start using it and kind of got used too, she started her school now and she wants to use it.. and i was thinkin geting myself a sony vaio.. but now that i like mac i though of geting mac notebook and debate is between macbook and macbook pro... in general i usually prefer small or at least smaller laptops, i usually use somewhere around 12" for LCD, macbook is 13.3.. which is ok i guess.. 15" or 17" is too much for me.. so thats why i'm thinkin of macbook not pro..

If you dont want the bigger screen, then I would guess that you already answered your own question. I have a 13" notebook that runs at the same 1280x800 resolution. I got the MacBook Pro because I wanted the bigger screen to work on my music production and for my live sets. Plus the next version of my music software (due out this month) will take advantage of Dual Core systems!!! :headphone
