Ok so after messing with this thing for the last two hours I must say I'm in love! This computer is amazing in every aspect. I do feel the colors are a little bit washed out but when I compared it to my ibook the macbook owned! I'm also pretty picky when it comes to this stuff and had I not known it was a problem that people were complaining about it wouldn't haven even crossed my mind. The only major downfall is the hum the computer produces (fans). It is pretty annoying but I can live with it. Earlier though I wasn't doing anything but browsing the web and the fan got super loud for like 3 minutes (can anyone explain that?). I'm really happy with this machine but the hum could get annoying in the class room....think i could get an exchange at the apple store? Other than the small fan issue this computer is AMAZING!
