The 13 Macbook Pro is a great laptop.   I have several.   Even the regular Macbook (white plastic) are fine machines for some editing work (light work in Photoshop for example).   Of course, the iMac's are great all around machines as well.  I have a 21 inch on my desk at work, and it is super!  

As with any computer, I always go for as much RAM as I can afford!

The 13 inch with the 2.4 is what I have, and it has plenty of horsepower.

I looked at that link. The 13 inch with 2.4 has Snow Leapord, right? (that's the OS??)
Yes!   10.6 Snow Leopard is the standard for all new Mac's.
