    How popular is the macbook in black? do a lot of people buy it for the color?

    the reason i ask is because,
    Is it at all possible that when the new macbooks come out, do you think apple will let you choose weather you want a black or white one? (like you can with the ipods and could with the the old Nanos)

    I really want a black one, but i dont want to pay the extra $400 for extra features i dont need to get a black laptop.


    any thoughts?

    I bought the black one just for the colour:D . But I don't see why Apple would not charge a premium for a choice of colors in the future, a lot of us are just suckers for style.

    I use mine for work, the black looked more professional. And since I could afford either, why not get the extra's?

    I went with the black because I wanted to maintain a professional image. Most people that I know agree that the black is more profesional than the white. Although, the white is certainly very sexy.

    I hate the constant fingerprints, though. Only if apply made a macbook in alu...

    Most likely not going to happen...

    You will be surprise with the amount of people forking out an extra few hundred dollars to get their blackbook
