Ok so today I finaly got a chance to see the new macbook at a local compsusa. Thought I would post about even though I know many others have allready done so. Just incase anyone else is interested in the macbook like me. My first reaction was wow this screens not that bad in terms of glossyness. I was able to point it directly at some lights and didnt get much of a glair onscreen. Just for kicks i compared it to a couple of pcs and boy were those reflective unlike the new macbook. So I think thats a non issue..hell my parents pioneer elite plasma has a glossier finish to it then the macbook and that sits in a room with windows and skylights with light sources moving around with little noticable glare. As for any noise coming from these new macbooks I put my ears right up close to the machines both a white and black module and could barely hear them runing. No mooing, wining, etc. I did not seem to notice that much of a speed difference between the macbook and the previous ibook. I guess I was just expecting more. Some of it could of course be limited by ram and the slower rpm hd. Also mostly all I was doing was oping and closing a bunch of random apps. The keyboard seemed quite nice and easy for me to get used to typing on. However the one issue I had with the macbook was the trackpad. I dont know if it was configured at its slowest setting posible for scolling around or what but it was so slow at movement that it was basicly useless and a painfull experience. Stupid me forget to check the settings doh! I hope thats not how its suposed to be otherwise even old dell p3 pos notebooks have beter trackpads on then well now hopefully I can get around to ordering one cause I would like to have it by june 30th in order to have it for vacation.
