I'm enjoying my macbook but there is only 1 issue and its a minor one, whenever I have the external speakers plugged in everytime there is no sound playing it makes a popping noise (I guess it shuts down the sound card?) then when any sound plays it makes another popping noise to activate the sound again. I've seen the apple support forum where many people are experiencing this and even one person mentioning that apple's next update or apple is working on the issue will fix this problem. Another person mentioned that these were a problem in the last years model macbooks but was addressed in one of the updates from OSX Tiger. So the real question is I guess just wait for the update to fix this issue?
