Im my opinion Macs aren't worth that big of a price, with that budget you can get a much better PC with higher processor speed, more memory and all that. If I were in you're spot I'd buy an extremely fast PC, plus you can upgrade them in the future.. If that's not an option, then get the MacBook with a 2.4GHz processor, you won't be left un satisfied.
DONT DO IT.
I am the owner of 3 MAC products. Each one I have warrantied at least twice, my ibook i can no longer warranty because the applecare protection program has since expired - yes - i paid 300 bucks for extra warranty that i can no longer use. unless i continuously get the mac that's been made on a tuesday by the same guy who keeps having a crappy day - i'd say theres something wrong with the entire company - not coincidence.
ive got the black MP, its fucking amazing, def go with either that or a MPB if youre goning to edit and actually use its capabilities. but check these deals, buy one refurbed, adn get a warentee adn youre good to go.
