    Does anyone know if the white macbooks are still having any problems? I wanted to pick one up soon and I remember hearing that they were having issues with staining. Does anyone know what issues the macbooks are having? I would appreciate any feedback. Thanks.

    I don't think it was thaaaat big of a problem. Just heard a bit about it and don't think I've heard much lately. My sister has one of the originals and has yet to have a problem. I'd say the chances are so minute of you getting one that "stains" that you have nothing to worry about.

    The Ivory Tower (I'm not coming down)
    The main Macbook problems are:

    -random shutdown

    Discoloration has been solved by using a different material. Random shutdown is being solved by replacing the logic board. The fuss about a small percentage of Macbooks having these problems has made it seem, to a newcomer, that a large percentage of Macbooks are faulty. This is not the case, don't be fooled.

    They shouldn't have the problem anymore, like others have said. If it does - Apple has acknowledged the problem and should replace it.
