Had a chance at the Apple Store to try a MacBook. Didn't realize there was such a speed difference between the Mini 1.66 and the Macbook 2.0. At first I thought it was the hard drive but they both use a 5400rpm drive.
The Macbook is pretty nice.

I have both. The 1.66 Mini has a slower processor and is driving a 23" display with 2.25 times the pixels of the MacBook's, but I don't really see any difference in speed between them. The MacWorld benchmarks don't show a big difference either.
