    /me wishes he hadn't just bought a flat
  • ah, crap! i'm running out of justifications to NOT buy one!
  • I dont like Macs, never will. But I do love the magnetic power connection. That is a must in every single device that must ever be plugged in!!

    Way back when I had a P90 laptop, yes I had one, my gf (now my wife) was vacuuming... and she sucked up one of the cords plugged into it. Ripped the card out (ruined it) and the wire was destroyed. Would have been nice to have the magnetic feature.. Like my deep fryer.

    /me also wants the black one. /me hates Macs but think they look pretty ;)
  • As a new Core Duo iMac owner, its the best computer I ever had. Wish I could sell my RevD 12" PowerBook for one of these :( I can't see myself ever going back to PCs (1.5 year long mac user now)

    "Intel GMA 950 graphics processor with 64MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory"


    Still a little tempting, but damn I wish they hadn't done that...
  • Pics of the black one. It has a "matte" (non-glossy) finish unlike the white one. I don't really like it.
  • Oh man, more pictures, and these are a lot better. The black looks a lot better here.
  • Will have to wait and see the black in person, but I'd have preferred a glossy nano-like black. Not that I'm in the market for one. The graphics card doesn't bother me, particularly as it's dual core, which I wouldn't have thought.
  • I'm glad i bought my laptop when i did or i'd have been way too tempted for the low end 13" one. That said I think this was still a better choice for £30 less with more ram and diskspace and a bigger screen.

    I'd also like someone to correct me but it seems as though theyre planning on charging £130 extra for the black one because it's got 20gig more space? Surely not?
  • > I'd also like someone to correct me but it seems as though theyre planning on charging £130 extra for the black one because it's got 20gig more space? Surely not? No, they are charging more for the black, they upped the HD just to make it look is if that's why it is priced the way it is.

    High-res Macbook images are available in Apple's Press Kit, though for some weird reason they're being unusually stingy with the camera angles.

    Hmmm looking at the pics, not sure about that black finish. It looks a bit 80s-in-a-bad-way, but maybe it's so 00s that I can't even appreciate it yet...

    Yeah I'll have to see that in person to decide. For some reason, the white ones look really glossy while the black ones look matte.

    EDIT: Oooh, and they all have glossy LCDs too :D
  • Once you go black you never go back.
