Hi, I purchased an iMac a few months ago and got really helpful info here, so I was hoping I might obtain some feedback for my next purchase, a MacBook. 1. I realize that color is a personal preference, but I'm having a bit of a difficult time getting over the price differential for the black version (even after adjusting for the difference in hard drive size), particularly given my possible add ons below. My sister has the black one and likes it, and tells me that it shows less wear than my niece's white one (but she takes it to school every day). So I'm wondering if owners here have any comments on the two choices. 2. I upgraded the RAM in the iMac myself, to 2GB, and am thinking of doing the same for the MacBook. I gather that I would have to replace all the RAM (the base configuration is 512 x 2?). But I was wondering, is it easy to open up the laptop to do this? 3. What do you think of AppleCare? I purchased it for my iMac but I gather AppleCare for the MacBook is even more expensive. 4. .Mac is tempting because of keeping the two computers in sync and the Web hosting features - I know that I could do better pricewise with other options, but after years of Dell computers I confess that simplicity is very desirable to me. I don't need email addresses, and I have Gmail so I effectively get web-based storage that way - so I'm wondering what people think of .Mac. I gather that on Amazon you can purchase a year's subscription for about $60; similarly, if I buy it from Apple at the same time as the MacBook the first year is $65. All this assumes that there's not a MacBook upgrade around the corner - which I gather is not expected. But, any views on buying now v. waiting would be appreciated. Thanks!!!
