Please check out the comparison I made

Or simply tell me if the Pro premium is worth 17hrs of min wage work.

I would, I think the pro is a lot nicer. My Mom has a 13" Macbook and it's nice, but I just like the Pro a lot better. I say go for the Pro.

Both have the nvidia 330
Here is the breakdown

Difference = $169
Gets you
  • twice the DDR3 RAM
  • SD and firewire slot
  • illuminated keyboard
  • thinner/.5 pounds less heavy
  • 60% richer screen colour
  • no fingerprints/ less scratchable/ much sexier design

worth it?

you mean 320m. But anyway, I'd go for the pro, it's definitely a lot better looking and double the ram is definitely useful. The SD slot is convenient too.
