Default Hows the macbook??

Thinking about getting the black macbook - not the pro. 2gig of ram and run my 002 with it.
Is it worthwhile spending the extra money to get a pro?
I dont record bands. Ill be just doing audio dumps one track at a time and then mix. Also, Ill need tight midi recording for my synths. Got a dual 1.25 G4 and its time for a upgrade.
Thanks in advance!!!

my MacBook does the work fine,

If you need the features of the Pro (MUCH more GFX power, bigger screen, ExpressCard support, FireWire800) and can afford it then get it!
And also get an external FireWire HD with a Oxford chipset. Recording to the internal
HD WILL result in problems eventually.

If you are on a budget the cpu power of a MacBook will run PT just fine.
The Speed jump from a G4 to a Core2Duo is dramatic!

You should also consider: if you don´t need to be mobile, the new iMac is much more bang for the buck than a MacBook.
