I agree with what everyone has mentioned.
firmware-b43-installer is usually the one to use.
the legacy is the one for much older chips.. I have never encountered it
in any modern computer... (not to say there isn't one, just that it must
be more rare)

The iBooks I have used all use b43-installer

When in doubt there is always
and more specifically

mbpro i think is Atheros
lspci |grep Net
ath9k kernel module
or something similar...
lsmod | grep ath
Maybe the newer ones use Broadcom...
