So I went out to one of the local computer stores and they had a MacBook there. I finally got to try one. This thing is a machine. The speed, the vibrant colors and the entire feel of OSX on such a perfectly sized notebook computer. Of course Itested for things like moo, whine, and heat. Not one problem what so ever. It was barely warm in the upper left hand corner. I have to say this is one of apples best creations. I can't wait to pick mine up for next semester. Just thought I'd give my thoughts. Hope this helps people in their descisons.
