    I didn't realize the new Macbook's came with Super Drive, so I'm thinking that since I"ve had a couple defective Macbook Pro screens I may just get a black Macbook and wait out out the Pro line until they fix the yellow tint issue. Anyone have a Macbook they use for graphics work? I'm going to be running the Adobe CS3 suite mostly.

    I made the pro>mackbook switch and I'm very happy with it. I sold my core duo pro because the wireless range was lousy, I needed a dual layer drive, and the core duo got so hot during intensive use that it was flat out uncomfortable (playing COH in boot camp would leave red marks on my legs). I went for the macbook this time because I couldn't afford the $2,000 sticker price again and feel pretty good about the switch.

    MacBooks are weaker at 3D graphics. I use CS3 on mine and it flies. Mine is the Rev A as well!

    I can live with weaker 3D graphics, I do mostly web-development and 2D graphics.

    MacBooks have been available with Super Drives since their inception.
