they fixed that yellowish thing by making the place where u rest ur hands with a higher quality smoother plasticWell, before I got my MBP, I had a BlackBook. I really prefer the black over the white, it's nice and sleek... but it's got a hefty premium on it. I had to clean my BB of every 1-3 months, depending on whether I really wanted to, but fingerprints, dust, and anything not black will show up on it. I'd choose the BlackBook over the WhiteBook, but the BB can be problematic with dirt and such, but you don't have to worry about that yellowing plastic thing. Either way, I'll never have to make the decision between black and white again, but I'd recommend a white for you if you're concerned about those things and just to save a little money as well.
