    No. That issue was resolved by Apple shortly after the MacBook's release over a year ago.

    My first MacBook (Late 2006, 2GHz C2D, SuperDrive) had an issue with discoloration, even though it had supposedly been fixed by then.

    I think the main issue now is build quality. My second MacBook (replaced the first, Mid 2007, 2.16GHz C2D, SuperDrive) had the casing come apart and the battery start to bulge.

    For $1400 after taxes, you'd think Apple would be able to build notebooks as sturdy as sub-$1000 PCs.

    Yeah--if you buy a Macbook, don't worry about the case turning colors; worry about the case holding together.

    I have a macbook for almost 8 months now, and no discolouration or falling apart. Don't worry, you have a one year warranty so if anything happens in the first year you're covered. If the case doesn't discolour in the first year, it probably won't in the following years. If you're really worried, you could always get applecare.

    here's a tip - wash your hands.

    here's another tip - close your macbook slowly and gently.

    treat your macbook like you're poor and just spent your life savings to get it.

    do not treat your macbook like you're a millionaire who paid for it with pocket change.

    You just opened a whole can of worms saying your going to get a black. But if I were you I would get the black one also, despite what people say.
