Guys, Just for info... John Lewis Stores and their online store have BlackBooks in stock at the same retail price as anywhere else. I bought both my 12" iBook and 15" Powerbook from them, and they deliver RAPID STYLE. http://www.johnlewis.com/Computing/Computers/+Computers+/Laptops/Brand/Apple/List.aspx It looks like they are currently waiting on stock of both WhiteBooks, but you can click a link to be emailed when they arrive in stock. What's really good is that they give you 2 years warranty cover on ANY purchase from them, so buying a Macbook from JL seems quite sensible. I don't know how much Applecare costs for an extra years cover, but I'm pretty sure it's not free. The service they provide is excellent to. I recently had to take my iBook into my nearest store to have the keyboard replaced after about 18 months of use. They took it off me to repair and I had it back within a week all sorted.
