  1. Those MacBook Pros are becoming a better and better value every day compared with the MacBooks… so I am for the first time looking at purchasing a MBP instead of a MB to replace my iBook. But I have a question for those of you who own MacBook Pros:

    How does the finish hold up on these? Is it easily dented or scratched, and if it is scratched, those scratches are impossible to remove, right?

    and

    How much do you find the aluminum decreases your AirPort range? I’ve heard the metal notebooks get significantly weaker signals than the (plastic) MacBooks.

    Thanks!
