    Guys,

    I will buy my first Macbook and I was with a doubt between a macbook aluminum or the old black model. My doubt is because the absence of the firewire port and the price (only $150), I have a camcoder (firewire) and I would like to use it on the macbook, but by the other side.. I have a PC that I can use to extract the movies and then copy to aluminum.

    I am between these models.

    Unless FW is a total deal breaker, I say get the new one.

    It's a nicer case and a newer build - you'll be happier in the long run.

    I agree. It takes 5 seconds to do a search which in this case would bring up dozens and dozens of threads exactly on this subject.

    Sorry I didn't mean to sound like a jerk. There has been so many threads on this.

    My advice is to buy the new one. I love my Blackbook, but if you can do without FW (I can't) then the new one is pretty sweet. Plus it is only $150 more. Either one is super nice though and will serve you well.

    I think people don't do searches on things like this because they have different variables and they want to personalize it. Like me! lol

    For the question, I think you should go with the new Alum MacBook because of the case (being the Unibody vs plastic) and a big one for me DDr3 ram.

    Sounds like Firewire isnt a "must have" for you so i would for sure have to say the ALUMINUM!

    go for the new one....the gesture pad upgrade is worth the $150 alone.
