    Have you guys checked the new MacBook yet??!!

    It's the nearest thing to the MacBook Aluminum Unibody.

    Actually IT IS a Unibody, except that it is Polycarbonate, not Aluminum!

    It's brilliant, it is even better than the Aluminum unibody in terms of battery (the MacBok Pro 7 hours built-in battery) AND of course in terms of price (the same 999$)...

    The only downside, that would prevent me (and lots of others) from getting it, is the lack of an Infra-Red port for the remote control unit...

    I do presentations a lot, and I need the remote a lot. Why? WHY on Earth did Apple remove the IR port from the MacBook? Was it that big? did you need the space for something else???

    Why? The device is brilliant, it is light, thin, cheap, fast, at least 250 GB & 2 MB RAM, multi-touch trackpad with no separate button, just like this of the MacBook pro... It's just brilliant...

    Why? WHY did you remove the Remote Control????????????

    Remote controls haven't shipped with Macs for a while, I thought? Anyways you can still use the remote with the Macbook- it still has an IR port.

    NO! there is no IR port...

    NO!!!

    That's the point, it is not about shipping, it is not DESIGNED to have a remote control, you can even check, it is not listed in its accessories when you go to the "Buy now" page!!!!

    and about the RAMs, 2 MBs are enough for most of the people!

    Anyways, I still think it's brilliant and suits the needs of more than 80% of Mac Users...

    & for those who wanna do Keynote presentations and stuff, you can get the Kensington Wireless Presenter

    It is even more powerful than the Apple remote, and with no big price difference!

    If I haven't already had the MacBook Aluminum Unibody, I'd have gotten this one!
