I live in Nebraska, there are no apple stors, but being in texas on vacation i went to the apple stor and finaly saw the macbook. 1. size many people say that the macbook sould be made in a smaller version, that is false, 13" is very small. you would think that 12" would be better, well that would be to small, being a widescreen it looks smaller than a 1:1 12". 2. speed all i can say is that its very responsive. i get apps to open in about 2-3 bounces. 3. i-sight i have seen people say i-sight is bad quality 2 or 3 times on this sight, that is totaly wrong. the built in i-sight is unbelievable, crystal clear i would say. 4. keyboard same as many people say, gota get used to it, after u do, its sweet! 5. overall this is a great buy, you get "more" than what you would pay for. i will definetly get it if i ever get the money. PS:yay my first review!!!
