    So I used to have a white MacBook a while ago. Long story short, I ended up having to sell it because of hard times. After building some savings, clearing debt, and living on a more strict financial plan I finally bought a new MacBook.

    I've never been happier.

    It's the BlackBook ( ;) ) with 2 GHz & 2 GB of Ram. The only thing that it doesn't match with the Alu (besides being alu) is the video card, which isn't a big deal to me because I don't do much at all with video. Might hurt a bit when trying to do some small gaming but oh well.

    This thread is just a happy thread, I suppose :]. Once you go Mac, you just don't go back, and it's been hard without one :].

    Congratulations, both for getting your new MacBook and for working hard to clear your debt. It's not an easy thing to do and you should be proud of yourself.

    only the whitebook has similar specs to aluminum. The blackbook does not.

    Sorry, that's what I meant by the new/old description. Guess I could have been a little more direct. Thanks.

    Sweet! Two of my passions; Enjoying a fine Macbook and seeing someone live within their means. Keep up the good work; discipline to spend less than you make. I love my black Macbook too.

    I'm just glad that I learned now instead of later on when I have more credit available at my fingertips.

    Thanks for the nice words guys :]. I'm loving it, very excited to be using a macbook to take notes again in class haha. Hand writing is brutal when you're used to having a MacBook :p
