Well, I was given a Macbook C2D to do some work on. After a few days with it here are some observations. 1) OS is nice. No surprise. 2) Why is this thing so damn hot? Are all Core 2 Duo so hot you can't put them in your lap?? This thing should be recalled. 3) I still hate touchpads. But, the two finger scrolling is very cool and saves time for me since, for me, touchpads are much slower than the "finger pointers." 4) HEAVY. My god!! Admittedly I am used to a sub-notebook. The way the weight is distributed in the damn thing is just plain awful. It's all in the back. 5) Did I mention it is so hot I can't even leave it in my lap? 6) Text is blurry. I just can't stand the Apple font rendering. To me it is blurry. I don't care if it doesn't accurately represent the font as it will appear on paper. What I care about is that in my browser all the text is blurry. I adjusted the smoothing both from high to low, no difference. ClearType IMHO is better. Basically, I still "WannaGoMac" but the hardware just is not a match for me. Maybe Apple will release a sub-notebook that will address the weight and heat issue so I can finally buy an Apple laptop. After this experience (the font blurriness) I am now hesitant at buying the Mac Mini next month (waiting for Leopard) as I was planning.
