    Default MacBoock vs MacBook Pro

    First of all sorry for my really bad eanglish.
    I'm using ableton and torq with MacOS. Now its time for me to purchase a laptop, it should be mac, but I dont know wich one is better for using outdoor for dj'in: Macbook is light n portable but with slower cpu, MBP is much more powerfull (is it?) but it takes a lot of place and hevier.
    Thank for your replyes ).

    the MB has the 2.4 ghz which is the same processor that the 15" MBP runs. All the Mac laptop start with 2 gigs of ram exp the the MBP 17" which starts with 4 GB and goes all the way to 8 GB. The 17" does have an extra usb port.

    im comparing 13 inch macbook with 15 inch MBP. is it worth ~ 0.4 ghz for less comfort? (aluminium ones). Amount of RAM and HDD is not actual thing Im loocking at (already bought' em for upgrade)

    I would NOT get a Mac Book as you can't upgrade to a 7200rpm hard drive, but with a mac Book Pro you can. That reason alone made me get a Mac Book Pro

    nope! now going from 2.0 to 2.93 you would see the difference. if you going for a 13" vs 15"...its boils down to screen size. They are almost mirror images of eachother.

    B L A H!

    DIY!...clone the hard disk, remove the battery, pull the hd, slap in the new one, have a smoke & call it a day...total time about 15 min to open and replace & to clone, well thats depends on what prog u use.

    i work in IT and my flat is loaded with mobo's HDD's and tonns of other stuff (be shure, my wife gonna kill me ) ). Usually i make clones with norton GHOST, dissasembling laptops is not a problem for me (there was one with air).
    if you going for a 13" vs 15"...its boils down to screen size. They are almost mirror images of eachother.
    So conclusion is : 13'' is better of its little sizes
    thank yall)
