I went to the Tampa Apple Store last night to buy my first ever Mac, I got the Black MacBook 2.2. I have been playing with it all night long! Wow, what an awesome machine! I have been transferring my files from my Toshiba Qosmio to the MacBook. The Toshiba runs so damn hot, you can not hold it near your lap, this MacBook is not even warm! I am a switcher. The straw that broke the camels back was Vista, I was so excited about Vista when it came out, I bought Vista Ultimate the day it came out and I have regretted that decision -- it looks nice (not as nice as Leopard) but it was so slow and kept me from being productive because of software crashes. I will be wiping it and going back to XP and giving it to my wife. I am so excited to be working on OSX now, truth is I have admired OSX since it came out -- Sexy and tons of eye candy! Life is good Ron PS I don't have any of the problems that other people say they have with the MacBook. It is not hot at all, I have not heard the fans kick on in high gear, screen is beautiful, my wireless is upstairs and I am down stairs and I have 100 % signal. Even my next door neighbors' signal is at 100%. I was also amazed that I was traveling down I-275 through the middle of Tampa and I kept picking up everyone's WiFi! I downloaded all the updates first thing and it happened in less than 5 minutes. This machine makes me happy! I guess I am lucky! The staff at the Apple store last night was awesome too, the lady checking me out tried to figure out how she could save me money by giving me a discount. I ended up saving 3% on my MacBook and 5% on my iWork 08. Not much, but she did not have to go out of her way to save me anything. Hope this review helps.
