Anyone got side by side comparisons of the 2 models? Im still in limbo what one to go for
What 2 models?
The old MacBook that came in black or white? If so, I would go with black, much cooler than the white MacBook.
The white one looks better than the back.
I've got an old model black Macbook. My girlfriend has a white one that I have used often. I like the black one better, for whatever that's worth.
Some things to think about: the black one shows fingerprints and smudges that was annoying for about a month. I bought some cleaner from the apple store and it works great. On the other hand, some of the older white macbook got discolored on the palm rest (in case you are planning on buying used). However, the discoloration issue has been fixed quite some time ago.
before upgrading to the aluminum i had the black and it was one sexy beast, looks way better than the white in my opinion.
I have the last gen 2.4 black MB. I love it. It's much easier to take care of than my old white iBook G4 was. I loved the iBook too, though.
Its a choice between a refurb black book 2.4ghz £700 or a brand new 2.1 white book from the HE store for £618 plus a 4gb upgrade for £45.
Just wanted to compare the two side by side. I do prefer the Black model but don't like the fact it'll be a second hand one when I could a new white one for less.
Theres also a macbook pro 2.4 for £800 if it comes online again i'll probably go for it lol. Although it is over budget. Multi touch and a back lit keyboard to good to miss
Don't buy any RAM upgrades from Apple. They overprice it by several hundred dollars (pounds in your case). My blackbook came with 1 GB RAM and I upgraded to 4 GB for only $75 from a third party manufacturer. Check the forums or buyer's guide regarding RAM upgrades. As long as you're not technologically inept, this is simple to do on your own.
Just a thought...
EDIT: maybe 45 pounds for the upgrade is the cheapest you will find, but definitely look into it.
doesn't matter if you're...
I suddenly feel like dancing
I had a white one and let me tell you it was a JOB keeping it clean.
Ive heard also that the black ones show alot of finger prints.
Get whatever you like, it really doesnt make a difference
lol I believe in miracles.......
I got a refurb black and it's new - if it's pre-owned they didn't have it for more than a week.
If you really want new (not refurb) and prefer the black, they have been discounted at Amazon.co.uk and cancomuk.com but still over £850.
I personally like Black better but got White anyway.
where you from?
Done. Ordered the black model about 20 minutes ago!
If it arrives scratched or I'm not happy I'll return it. Simple
Good for you! You'll love it!
