And I think that in terms of speed wise (measureable) the MBP is much faster with its 2GB ram (if you were to upgrade your Macbook to 2gb,you would have inch a bit closer to spending near to what the MBP is already, so why don't you pay for that extra speed and graphic performance?)I feel the MBP is more rugged and sturdy. With the Macbook, I have to be careful of the surface, there are always oil stains..etc.just marks no matter how clean your fingers are...it will be there. If you were to spend extra money on a case, it's not worth it at all-might as well contribute to the MBP fund. I have to buy a Marware wrist protector for the Macbook.
Since you already have a Powerbook, I would wait until the release of Leopard to buy either. (But that's just me. I think that if you purchase now, you can get a free upgrade when Leopard's released; I just wouldn't want the hassle.)
I am just going to quote from this thread on McRumors a post strongly in favour of MBP:take from it what you will - it seems those who chose MB are quite happy with their choice, but as are those who chose MBP. I personally am leaning towards MBP.
Yeah, they haven't unveiled the up-to-date program yet for Leopard. They will wait until they announce the specific release date of Leopard to do that.One other way to make up for the $600 difference (is it really that much?) is the onboard graphics vs. the external graphics processor.

I personally am leaning towards MBP.Not that I don't appreciate Macrumors for what is is -- most people over there seem to be somewhat snobbish about their computing. My question is am I going to regret spending $$$ a MBP when Apple releases the next great thing? And when is that next great thing coming out. My Powerbook was perfect for me because it was small and easy to transport. I'm not sure that I'll feel the same way about a 15" MBP and might want to trade it in later.
