    People like to come on the forum and complain about what is wrong with the macbook or how apple messed up but I have not seen a single computer that I would even consider over my alum macbook

    its flawless never a single problem for me!

    Happy to say that my First Gen MacBook runs wonderfully. My Ram Door could use a couple new screws because they're stripped but that's about it.

    Maybe it works good now ....

    My mid-2007 white 2.0 Mhz MacBook ran great, until the 1 year warranty period ended. It now overheats and shuts down with annoying irregularity, typically under high CPU activity. (I had a terrible time doing an initial Time Machine backup on a new external HD. Movies are a problem.) I think the problem is the cooling fan(s?) -- it does not work. I think the source of the problem is in the SMC bios. It is quite likely that whatever was wrong started prior to the warranty period expiration but I did not notice it and the Apple Hardware test did not disclose it. The computer runs great 90% of the time, but ....

    If you don't have Applecare and your Mac is less than 1 year old, get it! I used to think that if a computer worked for the first 24 hours, it would likely go on forever. That was true with all of the old IBM's that I ever owned or managed, but not with the MacBooks! Check the forums -- there are a lot of 'heat' issues out there. At least with Applecare, (God, I hate to have to say this!) you have a 3 year window to get the 'hidden' problems fixed.

    I havent had a single problem and have no complaints with my aluminum macbook. Its the best computer i've ever owned and ever used.

    Is it ok to leave it on all the time or should I shut it down at night?

    I've been through 3 alu macbooks, all of which had issues with the glass front.

    1) dust/ glass shard ? (it shimmered)
    2) huge splotch of something I'd rather not know what it was.
    3) streak marks on right hand side of glass like a badly washed window.

    maybe you should edit the options of the poll to something a little less narrow....

    Love my late 08 aluminum Macbook.

    Though the edges are a little sharp.

    It's fine to let it sleep at night. I usually turn it off, but just to save a little power.

    My white Macbook which I bought last march is getting it's first crack on the palm rest. It's just a 1 cm wide right now and didn't got any bigger for the last few weeks. I think I will get a new cover if it gets more cracks in the future.

    But everything else is pretty much as expected. Though OS X 10.5 had a few issues sometimes (wireless, waking up from sleep etc.) but most of the things are gone since 10.5.6.

    I think the aluminium is a good step forward, (especially because of the cracks the plastic models have)

    My white poly macbook is immaculate. No scuffs, scratches, breaks, cracks, fractures, loose hinges, broken keys, dead pixels, faulty ports, damaged features. Personally, I think aluminium was a massive step forward in terms of ruggedness and dependability.

    Maybe I'm just one from the lucky batch though (20th November - 3rd December '06 according to coconutBattery).

    I've had my white MB for over two years, not a single problem or complaint. Never had to take it in for service (I bought Applecare for it).

    Me thinks you may have missed the point of the thread?:)

    OK, I don't have a MB but.... I have an iBook G4 that I'm waiting to give to someone. And a MBP that replaced the iBook. Both work flawlessly, and I have no complaints. They have been, for me at least, what Apple is striving for. They just work.

    I brought one after saving for up a year, and waited and waited for the new Aluminum MacBook and then bought it the day they came out. And I got it with no problems at all. One of the best computers I've ever invested.:D

    it's great.

    I have no issues with mine, and coming from an iBook G4...well, it is just incredible.

    First one received had a bad screen; it dimmed intermittently. The one they swapped it out for has been flawless. I love this little aluminum machine. :D

    The speaker on the left isn't working. Found that out last weekend, when I thought the balance was off. Dragged the balance slider to the left, but heard nothing. Checked again in Vista (Boot Camp) to see if it was a software or hardware problem. Alas, it's definitely hardware. Only some cracking noises coming from the left. And I thought my MacBook was perfect! I need it really badly right now, though, so I have no time to get it fixed. Will bring it in once this hectic period is over.
