    You love them until you want to upgrade the ram. I went the cheaper route and bought ram. you have to take the entire back off and take out the Hard Drive to get to it. But I love the screen and the trackpad gets in the way a bit as in its all a button and and sometimes doesnt register a "click" and you end up minimizing or expanding your page... just nitpicks though. MUCH FASTER

    i got the 2ghz cheaper model and the only thing im missing is the illuminated keyboard. seriously, it would come in so handy

    i bought a mac mini in april for £389, sold it on ebay for £350 a couple days ago and got my new macbook at 13% student discount, so in total i paid £458 after the mini for the macbook and it connects to my tv the same and has optical out which i didnt realise.

    only complaint is that the trackpad isnt fully functional in windows via bootcamp. i mean, you can enable "tap to click" but it often doesnt register and you have to physically press the button, which feels odd after using os x flawlessly

    my first macbook and i am extremely impressed

    any of you guys care to comment on upgrading the ram to 6gb. I heard OSX can support it in this macbooks but would the performance difference be noticeable? I'm planning on buying another one since this first one is for my wife.

    Yes the ram can support up to 6Gb i dont know if it reads it or not i currently have 4GB. in my 2.0. But the problem is that "you technically want the same size of stick in each slot" example 2x 2Gb but there is no such thing as 3GB sticks. You have to buy a 4 and a 2 GB stick and it DDR3 and 1067 so you looking at around $600 at most places. Also you have to take off the whole bottom of the computer and take out the Hard drive to get to it but its all good fun..
    THANK BUTTON pls

    and on performance i noted a nice gain from 2 to 4 in having mutiple apps like aperture and photoshop open wile playing itunes and torrenting movies. Just get the cheaper one and upgrade it by yourself it normally cheaper unless you like illuminated keyboards

    I do like the new one's. They are certainly impressive in many ways. I have a loyalty to the traditional "White Apple" products. That was one of the things I fell in love with when they first came out. It's also the reason apple still sells white Macbooks beside these in the store. Enough people prefer them to justify selling BOTH versions side by side.

    I hope they bump the white Macbooks up to the same specs. If not I'll just have to sick to a slightly slower model..... it's not like it isn't enough to begin with anyway.... more is good though.

    Nice lappy!

    Still black keys and stuff. I want a solid white one, so I bought a 2.16 c2d yesterday.

    New one's are sexy as hell though, no doubt.

    I have been caught trying to type in the dark and not being able to see the keys to many times to list since the date i purchased my new one (24th/december/08)

    i rang up my local apple store and they will let me return it and upgrade to the illuminated keyboard model still, even though im outside the 14 days.

    Wow, $300 for the keyboard?

    I got the 2.4 for the processor, the keyboard was just a bonus, but it's definitely very useful. Makes it look awesome, too!

    Yes the keyboard illumination is definitely a good addition to the higher models. It would be better if only the letters were illuminated. From an angle, it seems to bright for me.
