    Ok...

    SO i've been switching computers quite a bit lately. A Macbook pro 2.2 SR to a blackbook 2.16 on special sale (which i posted about last week, about how happy I was about it... and i was, but this is even better) from school to now a 2.2 SR White Macbook, and in between those I had a few revisions of macbooks that I repaired and refurbished and sold to PAY for my apple habit :) It really does feel nice to buy a new computer with funds made from fixing other ones!

    No particular reason for the switch down to a macbook pro, cept I didn't need the extra power and got a good selling price (more then i paid for it... thanks ebay) for my macbook pro, and then when I had the black I decided i'd rather have a newer white model (white just says APPLE to me more :) ) so i sold that for more then i paid for it (thank you ebay again!) and finally hunkered down with my brilliant white SR macbook and i couldn't be happier! It's a great little machine. I miss some of the pro features, but i'll probably switch back to a new mbp this summer after I get a job (last semester of college)

    I just wanted to say how thrilled I am with this little thing. I really am loving the keyboard too.

    More importantly, I invested a whole 30 bucks in a macally leather notebook shell and I must say that this thing is great!

    It looks nice, gives nice protection it seems and doesn't scratch at all, was inexpensive and doesn't keep the computer too warm. Some people might have a problem with hiding the apple, or the leathery feel on a laptop, but I wanted to share that if you were wondering about it, I give it two thumbs up. My macbook is quite happy in it's red shell :)

    Just thought anyone out there getting a macbook soon, and thinking of buying a case, might benefit from a suggestions.

    Happy Apple-ing all!

    Agreed. Everyone should invest in a case. Makes your Mac look newer for longer.

    Can i ask you wat are some of the Pro features you miss?

    Thank you for sharing your impressions of new white MacBook.
    I'm definitely buying one as soon as I got enough money. :p Wanna buy black Macally Bookshell too but I'm not sure about overheating when MB is in it. :(
    And still don't know if I should buy MB to my girlfriend too or not...
