    noob in the forum
    ok guys so no need to dumb it down like i have to do when i ask others for their opinions so heres my question

    but bear in mind im a noob with mac computers

    im in the market for a laptop, apple is pretty much what i want as ive had ipod mini's classic's shuffles and currently am using an iphone 16gb 3G which i will be soon changing for the 32GB 3GS

    so im asking what the difference is between the macbook and macbook pro?

    from the stats on the base model macbook and macbook pro, the macbook has pretty much the exact same specs as the pro in terms of RAM and processor power and screen size but the macbook has 90GB more hard drive and is 200 euro cheaper

    are you only paying for the shiny aluminium case and light up keyboard or is its upgrading capabilities more ambitious than the macbook

    also is it expensive to upgrade hard drives or processor power

    any help appreciated

    hope its not a noob'ish question

    Specs:
    27" iMac Quad Core i7 2.8 ghz 1TB HDD
    The macbook pro has the aluminum casing, sd card slot, firewire and backlit keyboard. The macbook pro also has more expandability options. Hard drives are not expensive to upgrade, however upgrading the processor is near impossible.

    are the macbook processors easily upgraded?

    It is easy to upgrade the ram and almost impossible to upgrade the processor.
