My daughter, being the emo kid that she vehemently denies she is, will have to have the black version for college this fall. I wonder is she'll want to cover the difference?:rolleyes:

A very nice release, Apple. Solid spec's for an entry notebook.

Finally...

I love the overall package. Basically what could be expected. I was a little surprised with the free camera, but I think it's great that they're making that standard now. I'm sure it'll be standard on their Cinema Displays in the coming months, but with the height situation, they're going to have to allow some sort of way to adjust the camera's downward.

MacBook. I'd like to read it sometime.
