To Pro or not to Pro...

So, I'm going to buy a new computer within the next few days. I've been waiting for the new Mac OSX to arrive before taking the plunge. For the longest time, I was sure that I wanted the black MacBook with 2 GB of RAM. My question to my Mac-using friends is this: is it worth the extra $300 to go Pro for a larger, non-glossy screen, .04GHz faster processor, and the other niceties of the MacBook Pro? Or should I save my money and be content with the MacBook Amateur? Has anyone noticed a real difference between the two in their own experience?
Thanks in advance  :)

doooooooooooooood. get the glossy screen. totally worth it IMO. :P

besides that, i <3 my mbp, but i'm not familiar enough with the mb amateur to know whether you'd be better off with the mbp.

At my mother's suggestion, I ended up really splurging and getting the 17" Pro, 2.4 GHz processor with 160 GB HD and 2 GB RAM, but it's refurbished, so we saved a chunk of change :)

I know we already talked about this last night.... but I'm just gonna give you another nudge for the Pro. :)

My only experience with a Mac made me want to chuck it out the window. It was sad times.

You had bad luck then. I've been a Mac user my whole life, and it will be a cold day in Hell long before I buy a windows machine.
