Luckily, sometimes the parting results in something good. The new macbook is everything I thought it would be. Although, I'm a little leery of the screen quality. In my opinion, it seems a lot washier than my 17" powerbook that I've recently sold to a MR forum member. I'm probably going to calibrate it though. Otherwise, this SR Macbook isn't too bad. At least it's lighter than a 17" Powerbook, and makes taking notes easier.
