hey right now im using a 13 inch 2008 macbook but im thinking on selling it for 1000 and I have some other cash. I was wondering if I should buy a 13 inch macbook pro or 15 inch im on a tight budget and I am fine with the 13 inch right now but I still need ur opinion. I use my computer for school and I would probably be on it 24/7.

They are pretty much the same thing, the only difference is the screen size,CPU speed and firewire.

I don't really see the need to upgrade unless you really need the backlit keyboard, and SD card slot.

If you're on a budget just get the 13in MBP 2.26GHz version and upgrade the RAM on your own.

I guess that depends on what kind of CPU you have, how much RAM, size of your hard drive, and the overall condition of the unit.

But yeah $1000 might be too high for a 13in version.
