    On the Apple Store, the $999 white MacBook and the $1299 aluminum MacBook have the same specs (CPU/RAM/graphics/screen) except for hard drive (160 vs 120 GB).

    So if an extra 40 GB and nice aluminum design don't concern you greatly for a $300 price difference, then white MacBook is for you.

    Since you do relatively light tasks, the performance of the MacBook is well suited for you. It will run fine even with heavy multitasking.

    i have a macbook pro which is very good, but to be honest it doesn't sound like you need massive amounts of space... i would go for the unibody anyway
