    I'm not sure where I read the quote but I'm sure Steve Jobs said that almost all computers are identical in specs, software is what makes a difference~ :)

    The entry-level MacBook is $100 cheaper than that Sony at Microcenter, if that's any comfort.

    ^^^

    might be worth double checking that you don't have a Refurb' store in portugal. The UK Refurb' store seems to come and go depending on the stock levels.

    For example I checked last week or so and there were no macbooks at all but there have been in the past and will again.

    do the Core i's make that much of a difference? knowing apple, the reason why jobs is waiting out for the upgrades is probably him wanting 110% press focus on the iPad. That and for the costs to come down... I'd guess late May, early June... by then iPad wifi + 3g would both be well off in the market for Apple to focus back on their laptops
