13.3" Black MacBook 2.0ghz - 512 MB RAM - 100 GIG SATA HD The FedEx truck was nice enough to come by a 2nd time after she had tried earlier in the day when I was at work. I enjoyed opening the box and sorting through the nicely wrapped hardware. The initial setup was easier than any Windows or Linux setup I've ever used. I've been using the MacBook on my livingroom table the entire night, sometimes plugged in, and sometimes not. It has made no mooing or buzzing sounds at all. The heat isn't bad either... most of the time I don't even notice it, sometimes its a bit warm in the upper left corner, but even if I left my hand on it I don't think it would burn me. I've ran several programs at once and the fan kicked on once noticably, but it was quiter than any PC I've ever had/used. It wasn't an unpleasant sound at all. The fan slowed down or stopped after a minute of running. For the record, I haven't installed my 2 gigs of ram yet, I'm running stock 512 MB or ram at the moment, and its plenty fast to do several basic tasks at once. I know it will be a lot quicker when i install the ram tomorrow. As for the keyboard, I was REALLY afraid that I was going to hate it. For the first 15 or 20 minutes I wasn't sure what I thought of it... but now I'm typing in the dark and quickly without error and its THE BEST notebook/laptop keyboard I've ever used BY FAR. Trust me, don't think about it too much... Just look at the screen and let yours instincts tell you where everything is. The large track pad is also a welcome bonus. I went into the preferences and checked the option to double click when I click the mouse button and have two fingers on the track pad. The screen I have yet to test outside in the daylight, but inside/indoors its beautiful. The verticle resolution is the same as my 17" LCD and the text is very crisp and easy to read, and I'm someone that uses glasses. The brightness is very nice, although not quite as bright as my Sony X-Brite LCD, which I sometimes consider overkill for brigthness. The black matte finish on the body of the laptop is high quality. I do not regret spending the extra $150 for the look. The Apple on the backside of the screen glows a bright white which adds to the notebooks class. Overall, I have nothing "bad" to say about this notebook. This is by far the best computer I've ever had, and I'm glad that this was my first Apple computer. I give it a 9/10. I hope this review was helpful to someone. btw- I'm installed azereus, but every time I try and run it, it simply shows up in the dock breifly and then quickly goes away. I tried installing Java, but it said I had the latest version already installed. Could anyone help me out?
