    i did idid

    i just couldn't wait!
    Order at 11:25 ET online.
    White 2GHz 80GB 1GB w/ VGA and video adapters.:)
    I was sold by the magnetic cover compared to macbook pro's latch.
    I had an 17" PB and the area around the latch release was a bit dent after 12 months or so.

    My wife has been complaining for weeks that she needs a computer, and I've been insisting we wait for the MacBooks. It has been a long wait ... I even found myself looking at a Dell 710m a couple of times, wondering how hard it would be to install OS X on one, so this morning I ordered a 1.83GHz, 1GB RAM, everything else stock.

    So, back to checking order status every 30 minutes ...

    2.0 Ghz White Macbook
    80 gig HD
    1Gig Ram
    Superdrive

    It's supposed to arrive o the 26th of this month. 9 MORE DAYS!

    It's not the shipping that takes the most time. It's Apple getting it out the door.

    Cannot wait, checked them out in Apple store regent's street this afternoon, they are amazing, the build quality is a mile above the iBook G4's and the screen and Keyboard are great in my opinion...Not to mention they are blazingly fast and super thin!!!

    My current PC NB has glossy screen so i am used to it.
    I didn't find backlit keyboard much useful from my experience with 17" PB since i always need the lights on.
