    Well i kind of am because i bought the new updated white macbook and the unibody was the one that came up when you clicked macbook on the apple website and the whitebook was considered 'old' and going to be replaced soon ( i can still see that happining ) but now its the only macbook and when you click mac on the apple website you can see it. Makes me feel better :D

    What im not happy about is that i could of not bought the whitebook and waited and got myself a new 13 inch macbook pro for not that much more. How was i to know that was to happen and its still 300 euro more.

    Overall its all good :apple::)

    Are these whitebooks the same as the older early 2008 whitebooks, with just a CPU upgrade? Or do they include all the benefits of the newer macbooks(better battery life, and LED screens)?

    Does this one crack in the palm rest as well?

    Great, really good addition to the thread...

    There's something I've always liked about the polycarb MacBooks, I guess it's the fact that I always loved the white 5G iPod, and I still prefer a 17inch plastic iMac to a 20" Alu one...

    Keep the polycarbs for a while I say, they're still sexy and they're almost becoming retro tbh :p

    It's lame for there to be a regular 13.3" model for 8 months, then a pro one in the same casing 8 months later with a discontinued unibody regular model. :( I was this close to ordering 100 pieces of display glass for the 13.3" unibody.

    "So, yeah, I can repair the cracked LCD. No, I didn't downgrade your laptop, the glass just doesn't say Pro on it, since I have 100 pieces sitting here without the word pro written on them, that I restocked on right as Apple got rid of that model"

    I need a special material for "Pro" to be written in, so that it only appears after I spray a special liquid on the glass. :D

    :(

    There are still gonna be people with the Collectors Edition that need the screen repaired.

    Then again, I could have gotten rid of it as a premium as collector's edition glass!

    Now the think tank's cooking.
