    Default Which Apple to buy?

    I have 2 offers the Macbook 1.83 and the 2.0 with DVD writer.
    If the 1.83 is S$1500 and the 2.0 is S$2000 which one should I buy?

    it depends on whether or not you burn DVDs on a regular basis as a form of Backup and/or as data/pics for frens. If you dun burn >700mb at any 1 time, i would suggest you save the $500, could buy a very nice 2.5" ext HDD with that $ with some cash to spare. Also allows you to tsf your data around more easily.

    However, getting ext DVD hurner for your Macbook can also be another option later on. I think there are some from LG/Imation that are pretty good. Some work on USB2.0 and some on Firewire 400 as well. Fren bought 1 LG USB2.0 burner for $140 from Funan. So it really boils down to your usage and budget i guess....

    Are these student prices or something? Most places have them at $200+ more.

    LG USB2.0 external DVD burner is only $109. I bought mine at Comex with free 25 pieces -R media. can use on every PC/Mac you have.

    i would get the 1.83. use the money to spec up to 2 gig RAM. if necessary still got left over for a decent burner.

    Fuji Apple is nicer to eat.

    Haha kidding.

    I have the 1.83 CDR burner macbook, and it's wonderful. I don't need the DVD burner as well, 500 bucks more doesn't justify IMHO.
