    Given your described usages of your Mac I would not suggest you get the MBP but instead you should consider the MacBook.

    What are you studying? Does your school requires you to run any proprietary software? If there are will these software run on the Mac?

    You get the slowest MB with the fastest hard drive and then spend the remaining of your budget on as much RAM as you can get. With a minimum of 2GB.

    One thing you can save on is to get the Combo drive model rather than the Super Drive model. The money saved should be spent on RAM.

    I read on here new versions are planned for oct & nov. I got 2 macbooks, White 2gb 80gb cd writer 600 student price and black 4gb 250gb DVD writer used 450 . I recommend a larger hd and use bootcamp to run windows just in case.
