    I think it's funny that I'm using microsoft money to purchase a mac....

    Anyway, I work on macs at the geek squad, so I'm well aware of the technical specifications.... however, there are some questions that can only be answered by those with (extended) use of both products.

    So, after cashback and paypal discount, my total cost would be:

    1. Apple Macbook Pro, 2.33 ghz (Made spring last year, right?) 2gb Ram, all stock, without DVI to VGA adapter (which is fine, I get them cheap at Best Buy) for $1000

    2. Apple Macbook 2.4 ghz, 2gb ram, the current model (pennryn, only a week old) with applecare for $1000

    3. Apple macbook pro, current model, 2.4 ghz with 2gb of ram for $1150.


    Now, I think that the third one might be a scam, if not, that's obviously the one I'm going to pick.... but if you had to choose between the top two, which one would you pick?

    You work on macs for Geek Squad, and you're asking for our advice? Why would you buy the Macbook over the Macbook Pro?

    With the pennryn processor, wouldn't the macbook be faster?

    What is the Paypal discount?

    Or do you just mean the % you get back for using your paypal card?
