    I'm ready to purchase a new notebook and get rid of my DELL. Apple is really close of making the MacBook perfect to what I want. I'm just wanting an LED backlight screen and aluminum casing. Hell, I'll settle for Santa Rosa. Those two things have to be coming soon. I mean Apple is all gun ho about the environment and the MacBook is the last computer with the white exterior.

    I'd wait, its been a good while since a macbook revision. It may still be another month or two, but I'd guess its coming soon.

    tell you the truth, you will be happy with pretty much anything you get. i got my macbook right before the c2d came out and it really didn't matter.

    aluminum has always been reserved for the higher end son

    powerbooks, g5 towers, macbook pros, mac pros, so maybe just save up a little more so you can get one in your hot little hands etc.

    What's up with everyone calling me son? I have one and ONLY one father. I don't want another 15" notebook. That is what I have now and it isn't portable enough. Besides, I don't need to pay extra for the extra power in graphics and whatnot. I still believe they will update the MacBook's case. It looks like an unloved stepchild with the white case and everyone else has the aluminum. If you say aluminum is just for the pro, what about the mini? Eh?

    Just got a blackbook for the lady, she loves it, it's fast as hell :dunno:
    If I didn't need the gpu punch for my media apps it'd be my next notebook too.

    because it is a fundamental characteristic and selling point that apple has used for 7+ years now to differentiate the regular equipment and the big boy computers

    dont hold your breath

    and the mac mini top is white as rice
