People often ask me which is better — the MacBook or the MacBook Pro? As I have previously posted, I opted for the MacBook, and I have been very satisfied with my choice. Of course, I do miss the backlit keyboard that comes with the MacBook Pro (and my old PowerBook), but I remind myself that that one minor feature didn’t justify the price difference — at least not to me.
Tim Bray, who works at Sun Microsystems, recently published an article in which he discusses his decision to go with the MacBook instead of its bigger silver brother. Among the reasons he loves his black MacBook are its longer battery life, great WiFi reception, smaller size, durability, and cool look. He goes so far as to state that "at this point anyone who buys a silver Mac is making a big mistake." If you’re currently debating which Mac laptop to purchase, you may want to check out his article.
