Ever since the black Macbook was released, I have noticed (among my friends, relatives and colleagues) that they tend to have far less issues when compared to the white Macbooks. I asked a distant friend of mine, whose school/vocational college students use Macbooks, to do a poll. Out of the 558 Macbooks, 327 were white and the remaining 231 were black. 129 (39.45%) white Macbooks had issues where as only 13 (5.63%) black Macbooks had issues. Of course most of the issues (battery problems, discoloration, over-heating and so on) were resolved by Apple. With this result, I can't help but wonder if the premium for black Macbooks is charged for reasons other than color.
