    definitely mbp.
    video card makes all the difference. can you not get a 256mb video card on the mbp?

    plus, the silver is much sexier than black

    Does the MBP drop down that low with the discount? Is there anything else you're losing on it? I just built a MB for around 1600 (before discount) that I'd like to buy once leopard comes out...

    you may not need the extra power from the MBP but if you can afford it, go ahead and get it. You'll love the resolution and the dedicated memory. If you have to have the smaller size (yet heavier) MB then you've got your answer but considering the 15" MBP isn't that much larger, I'd go for it :hs:

    And yeah the MBP goes to 1799 with education discount.
