    The speakers are located on the back of the laptop alongside the grill.

    The quality is just as lame as on the iBook.

    I honestly don't know about the iBook, but the MacBook speakers are much better than those on most other laptops I've come across.

    i had a 12" ibook and now have the new black macbook and i think the macbook sounds much better than the ibook, however both of them have low quality speakers, if you want to get good sound out of a laptop you should use headphones or external speakers...

    You got that right, lame and lamer. They are there but not loud nor have great fidelity. Externals or headphones only way to go.

    In my opinion, the MacBook's speakers are much louder than my old iBooks. I was never able to hear anything on that old iBook. At least, now, it's audible.
