    Should i
    get a stock Blackbook - no apple care
    gat a stock white book - apple care
    get a whitebook - 2gb ram

    these are my options - i can upgrade the applecare later in the year

    i need it only for school work, multimeadia, light recreational video editing and internet

    thanks all, will buy as soon as leopard comes out/and or updates

    Since you're into video editing and multimedia, definitely go with the RAM. :)

    Definitely get a white MacBook with either 2 GB RAM or AppleCare.

    If you bought the 2 GB of RAM, would you be able to buy AppleCare within 1 year? ...If so, do that.

    I think the thread title should be "BlacBook vs WhytBook". :D

    Yes, as long as you still qualify for the edu discount. Just make sure you have the money within a year... AppleCare is really a must.

    I would definetly suggest getting the white MacBook and 2GB of RAM, you can always get the AppleCare later, and you will see an imediate benefit from 2GB of RAM.

    I have a blackbook. It's nice. I think the black case looks a bit more pro than the white. 2 gigs of ram is nice, but it's an easy upgrade later if you don't want to pay apple's premium for rams.

    black appeared in apple laptops long before white ever did. if you really want original apple, black is the way to go. i prefer white myself. if you're solely concerned over color, choose the color you like not what everybody else likes.

    as for my vote, i say go with white with upgraded ram. unless you really really really hate scratches. if that's the case, definitely go with the black.

    Another vote for the White MB with 2 GB of RAM, and then purchasing AppleCare later in the year.
