Well, I purchased a white Macbook for my wife as a Christmas present and it is one beautiful machine. Now I'm in the market for one for myself. I will be purchasing a refurb direct from Apple, and I was wondering whether or not the black one is a good choice. Are the paint chipping stories as horrible as I hear they are? Also, does the black show dust and dirt worse than the white? Also, how is the glossy screen? I will be keeping this laptop for quite a while so I'd like one that's going to look good for as long as possible. Feedback is appreciated.
