    It's unfortunate that "leaving it's predecessors in the dust" is also combined with a tendency to become "outright scorching" as it is "readying for takeoff". Not the most pleasant thought. :eek:

    Read that review yesterday. The writer is starting to warm up to Macs.

    He did a nice comparison, showing that the MacBook is not out of wack price wise with WinXP laptops.

    There was also a MacBook review in the WSJ a few days ago which gave positive feedback. I don't have a link though.

    No surprise there, the WSJ seems to love Apple (especially Walt Mossberg), and for good reason I might add- its Apple, what is not to love?! :D

    Well they are a local company (Herndon , VA), so a nice plug for our tech sector here.

    Last night, I took the family to the Tyson Apple Store to get a glimpse of the MacBooks, as the wife and I were interested in how they looked in person. I was highly impressed (and so was the wife, which is unusual). I'll be purchasing a MacBook sometime this week, maybe tomorrow or Friday via the online store. I'm going to get the 2GHz white one. I almost want to just purchase locally, as I don't really need a BTO machine. My wife thinks I should do a BTO with an 80GB drive since its only $49 to upgrade from 60GB to 80GB. I want to purchase a non-customized machine and add a gig of RAM and maybe a 100GB drive...I can get the customize parts locally. I guess I don't really want to wait for my purchase to ship! :)
