    ok, i'm stuck between buying the white macbook with a super drive (core 2 duo)
    or getting a black mac refurb (core duo)

    pros and cons of the core duo vs core 2?
    pros and cons of the refurb vs new?

    with applecare, they come out to the same price

    so the only difference is the storage and the C2D? if the white one is 2.0 GHz i'd go for that one.

    The only benefit of getting the black macbook is, well, it's black. Refurb and slower proc ftl

    C2D is faster, has better battery life, and runs cooler. The Macbook itself also has more RAM, and a faster super drive. The white one is a better choice in this case.

    I guess you could always colorware the white one later, but it won't be matte black :dunno:

    I think the black macbooks don't look as good as the white ones.
