    Hey Guys,
    I was wondering why did you buy the white macbook and what attracted you to it? Was it the looks, the price? Do you use it for work, School/College or personal use? Do you regret buying it?

    I sort of wish I got a MBP because of the cracking issues of the case :( Other than that its cool, I use it for school and pleasure. What it lacks in power doesn't really bother me since I have a 24" iMac also.

    I bought it because the extra features in the aluminium Macbook didn't appeal to me enough to shell out an extra £100+. I think the White Macbook is perfectly adequate for most people IMO, and it certainly is for me. It also, again in my opinion, looks nicer than the aluminium laptops, it's more consistent and it's nice in white (if you keep it clean).

    mine is from year and a half ago Christmas revisions so there were nothing but white and black. And black didnt justify the cause, plus looks sooo bad after just a few months. But i do find my laptop is still much faster then the current gen and less noisy.

    I had a loaner brand new white mac and that thing makes high pitch nose when prossessing, it kills when using in the dead of night, and it got slower, much slower. I dont know how the hell thats even possible but i did do a test with nothing but SL installed on both.
