    Has anyone noticed than since the introduction of the MacBook, these forums are flooded and mixed with it? Now we have the new MacBook mixed with the old MacBook in the same forum and it's a mess...

    I don't understand why they called it a "MacBook", it is supposed to be a "MacBook AIR" and maybe the other one be the "MacBook". It's all mixed up! But this is the first generation so maybe they'd fix that... who knows. Like the first unibody Mac was a MacBook, then later the MacBook Pro and the MacBooks went back to polycarbonate. Perhaps the MacBook line is Apple's experimental line :rolleyes:

    The only thing that is "mixed up" are the engineers at Apple who thought that producing a laptop with one friggin' port was a good idea.

    It's hardly a mess. Prior to today's announcement, there was less than a post per day in this subforum, so there won't likely be many new threads on the older MacBooks.

    Yes, today's announcement just gave this sub-forum new life. However, it does mean a lot more frustration for the (plastic) MacBook community trying to post here. Where they once had a quiet sub-forum to themselves they will now be drowned out by constant discussion of the rMB.

    It appears the only thing being drowned out will be the previous sound of crickets chirping.

    The old MacBook is dying. It hasn't been sold in years and will slowly be phased out. I see no reason not to let this thread topic reman as-is and naturally shift toward the new Mac.

    PowerPC was a huge shift. The plastic MacBook was just one line of Macs that Apple killed.

    There are still plenty of people using plastic MacBooks, and having two completely different products share this sub-forum is quite confusing.

    This goes back to an earlier discussion regarding a sub-forum specifically for older Intel Macs. I think the MacBook discussion would be best had in such a sub-forun.

    I agree. They should have just updated the MBA with the new specs and retina display and forgone this new macbook entirely.
