The title says it all IF.......you aren't a graphics design PROFESSIONAL or a PRO video editor. I payed$2500 for my current MBP a few years ago and I found out that I didn't even scratch the surface of this thing. But at the time the plastic MacBook justwasn't enough for me. Now that the Unibody MacBook has better specs and has a nice overall package, not to mention a decent graphics platform (I knowit's shared, but it's a whole lot better than the Gen 1 MacBook), I'm getting a Unibody MacBook for $1249 with student discount. It's funny because last gen I preferred the MBP, but for current Gen I want no parts of the MBP. MBP= one the mostoverpriced for specifications on the market today.
