    Hey guys, I know there's alot of "Should I wait?" type threads; heh, I've gone thru most of them.

    From what I've read on the new model, it'll be a slightly faster processor, have the glass trackpad (not sure if I'd even like that) and a few other odds and ends.

    My question has to do with the outside case of the new model. I don't know if I'm the only one out there, but I don't really think the aluminum casing "does it" for me. I have always kinda liked the 'clean' look of the white plastic. I was reading a few conflicting reports as to whether it will be alum or the old white.

    I was looking to put the hard case on it. (maybe not the purple one, but just for the idea) Anyone else have any comments on the alum vs white?

    Ugh... decisions decisions.

    I hope they don't make it aluminum or if they make it so, put some sort of a guard behind the screen, otherwise they get bruised from pressure in backpacks and etc

    And you should have posted in one of them.

    If they change the case at all, your hard case won't work. Don't buy now.

    Relax there... reason I didn't post in someone elses general thread is I had a specific question as to the case-type. ALL of the threads asking "should I buy now/later" with no general direction get flooded with people posting links to other threads and yelling at the OP for asking a "stupid question".

    I guess I should have worded that better. I don't have any accessories for any macbook at this point. If I was to buy one, I'd want to get a case for it.

    Thanks for the replies.

    Oh, well, if the case changes, it'd be a while before third parties get the dimensions to release compatible external cases.

    Buy it today.

    been seeing alot of people buying them this week. I think people realize no updates to anything until the promo ends in September. I like the white. I think its very apple.

    i think the aluminum feels alot better then the plastic macbooks.
    and it also looks more unique and expensive
