New 13" MacBook Pro vs. older Aluminum MacBook. Let me compare the entry level models.
- Better screen, better viewing angle and color. For it is now a 'Pro' machine.
- Illuminatied keyboard on the entry model.
- 8GB Dual channel RAM support!
- Firewire 800
- SD Card Slot (There must be something about this, why did Apple do this?)

- Cheaper by a 100 dollars!

I am considering doing away with my MacBook and getting this one, quick.

Apple probably decreased the SATA speed on purpose.
After a while they will release a new driver that increases the speed to 3 Gbps and charge $10 for the "upgrade".

plus the express slot is gone.wtf
sd ain't a priority for anyone n a card reader costs less than 500 bucks..
But an express card can run all expansion ports n stuff.plus my sound card

@nish 2,500 in exchange of the 2GB RAM? Fair enough.
You had a 17'' MBP, so why a White MacBook? Portability perhaps.

I still think that 13'' MBP is much more value. Do you really need a high performance SSD for a low-end consumer machine like the White MacBook?
Isn't a speed of 1.5Gbps adequate even if you get a fast SSD? 150 MB+ read/write speed is fast even by future terms.
I think the ability to go 8GB in RAM is more future proof!

Aahh my old MBP seems to be so outdated within 1 year! The SD card slot would be useful but the expresscard slot is pretty useful and can also support SD card stuff

I've got just one iPhone 3G..... The older one is biting dust in some miserable corner of the house :D
iPhone 3Gs will be the best phone ever! The new 13" MacBook Pro is totally worthless. Just an addition on 7 Hours battery life? Is that it?

Hi Bro.. I was planning for Mac pro 13". But you just scared me. Any reason? Also can anyone tell how to know which labtop graphic card are capable of what... i mean DELL XPS 13" also comes with a GC and so comes the Mac Pro 13". Cost looks almost same to me then what is the difference?
 
Well, my uncle bought this 13" MacBook Pro last week and I find it no better than my current MacBook other than the new 7-Hours battery. If you're going for it, I won't stop you. Get it. It's an awesome machine! A MacBook will always be much better than a Dell one. As for the graphics, the notebook comes with nVidia 9400M which is quite capable....if you don't plan serious gaming. Overall a MacBook Pro 13" is a nice buy. The 2.23Ghz model cost me 71k.

just 71k.. did you got from USA. Here in india its more i guess. Also tell me this and pls dont laugh.
Can i play crysis in vista in this Mac Pro 13 without breaking the graphic quality? I want to compare with my XFX 8600 GT DDR3 so asked.

No I bought it from 4Genius Minds, Kailash Colony, New Delhi for 71k.
Well, if you have gaming in mind, don't bother with a Mac. A 9400M will be able to play Crysis but only on Low-Med graphics settings.

One question here...are you talking about Mac Pro or MacBook Pro 13"? There is nothing like Mac Pro 13.

Ya offcourse MACBOOK PRO 13. Just wrote in short.


Actually my confusion starts here.

DEll XPS 13 has 2 options.

1) Integrated NVIDIA® GeForce® 9400M graphics [Included in Price] (No size mentioned)

2) 256MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 9500M-GE with Hybrid SLI® Technology [add Rs.2,678.94]

And MacBook Pro 13 has

1) NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory3 (Read that shared with Main Memory. Is that means its going to cut away 256MB of my ram?)

I would prefer to go with the one with better Graphic card as i feel Graphic card plays a vital role on computer performance.

And can anyone say for the Dell XPS what difference will SLI card bring out?

The Studio XPS 13 or the XPS M1330?? The MBP 13 is good for casual gaming but there arent much quality games or just buy an Xbox or PS3
