I purchased the MacBook 5.2 (mid 2009 model) about a month ago. It is just what I needed as traveling laptop and is the only Apple computer I have. I have been very happy with it, but no more so than last eve. A stick on LED light above the Mac decided to fall about 1 1/2' and landed on the Mac and bounced to the floor. No dent as surely would have happened with the aluminum case and no scratch!! I said to myself, quite relieved, that for once I was glad I hadn't needed the latest and best when I bought the computer.
