    I currently own a MBP 13" late 2009 2.53ghz, 4 gig ram, 500gig hd. I was over at a friends the other day and was using his Black MacBook 2008. I absolutely fell in love with it. I really want one and am considering selling mine for one. Am I mad for thinking this? I dunno, I suppose I love the fact that it's kinda retro and u don't see many around anymore. Everywhere I look, I see unibodies. Although I'm not sure if I could adjust to the old style (non multi touch) track pad and also lose the led display.

    I have a soft spot for them too, but you are mad if you actually go through with it and downgrade.

    dude don'T sell or trade. the MBP is much superior to the blackbook. it may look nice but it's still old technology. and trust me after you got it you will find yourself whining about the lacks of functionality.

    By all means do not sell your current machine. But if you look around you could get a black macbook pretty cheap as a second laptop. This way you won't downgrade and you will get in touch with your love..

    such a ripoff. Colorware is insane with their pricing.

    I'd stay away from a blackbook though. The heavily used ones look the part showing tons of grease from your hands on the trackpad, keys, and palm rest. They look cool from a distance but up close they look like crap. I'd rather cough up a few hundred for a good cr-48 on ebay and use it as a back up for some fun.
