    I am currently in Tampa, Florida, and went to the International Mall yesterday to check out the Macbooks. They are so amazing. The Macbook is so much faster than my HP laptop. I used many programs to test the speed out like photobooth, iTunes, and Word. Woah this baby is fast. The camera is really great quality. I thought the speakers were really high quality also. i listened to a few tunes and it sounded great. I also really love the new keyboard. It feels so much better than a standard keyboard. The screen is also beautiful. It is so bright and clear. I felt the left corner of the Macbook and it was indeed hot. It wasn't unbearable like most of you are saying. It wouldn't be a concern of mine. I stuck my head right next to two of the three machines and none of them were mooing or whining. I didnt even hear the fans! My favorite feature was the magnetic closing. It is so convenient. Finally, the colors. The white models looks just like the iBook but enlongated. I really liked the white. The black...wow. It looks amazing. Especially the white glowing apple against the black paint is well...hot. The only downside to the black: it most definitely chips. Right around the closing latch area, you could see silver underneath black paint. This is the reason the white impressed me more. Well i hoped this helped some people with their choices!

    i have one (black)...but how the heck can you think that the speakers are good quality...you have to have it playing full blast to amont the same sound half way (or even less) on a Powerbook or Macbook Pro:rolleyes:

    i think the sound quality isnt bad actually so i can see where the OP is coming from. it surprised me since i thought it would be worse especially for a laptop and considering there are 'hidden' speaker holes.

    the speaker quality is fine, but the volume is poor.

    There always seems to be something that stands in the way of a clear purchasing choice.

    The black MacBooks don't chip. They are not painted. It is black plastic.
