    Got my Macbook today and unlike my iMac, there are no smart folders already on this?

    Yes. What version of Mac OS X are you running?

    If you're running Lion, try this:

    1. Create a new Smart Folder in Finder. Customize as you like.
    2. When prompted to save, it will automatically want to go in "Saved Searches." This is the correct place for this. An option to add the new Smart Folder to the sidebar will be available.

    I guess the MacBooks come with Lion now, and thanks! :)

    Since you didn't specify whether you bought it new or from where, there's no way to know for sure. Glad it helped!
