Personally I like it. Small, light, sexy, a great 2nd Mac. I will consider getting a rev. B or depending on the changes, a refurb rev. A. And I don't even need one so much as I like the weight factor for travel and using around the house as well as some writing I need to do. I think the specs are fine for all that and I am not a huge fan of the MacBook. I would only buy the black one and with 2GB that's $1,649 vs. $1,799. I'll pay $150 for the reduced weight and aluminum case. But I wouldn't pay another K for an SSD drive. So that's my question: 1. Difference in battery life... 2. Difference in data performance/reading/writing... Between the PATA vs SSD drives. And how will the PATA compare to the current 5400 drives in MBs for number 2.
