I'm debating whether to buy a MacBook or a MBP when I begin school this fall. I've been a PC-user for a long time, but I used an iMac for my Computer Graphics class last year and have been interested in buying one ever since. I plan on using the Mac for mainly Photoshop stuff. And I already know about www.macrumors.com and their Buyer's Guide page. I just wanted to hear user opinions on how the two look/run. My main concern is over the price. As it stands right now, I'm looking at either the $1300 MacBook (the one with the 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor) or the $2,000 MBP. There's no way I can afford the $2,500 or $2,700 MBP on my budget. I will be using the student discount with it, and hopefully this will save me some cash. As it stands right now, I'm looking at the $1300 MacBook. But if I do fall in love with the Mac and decide to load it up with my other programs, will I regret not getting the MBP? Edit: I checked out the pricing for what it would cost with the education discount. The MacBook would cost me $1200, the MBP would cost me $1800. Again I'd still need to buy Photoshop for it, so that's going to cost another $500 or so. Taking into account the education discount, would th MBP be a wiser purchase now?
