Alright so, after browsing these forums fairly secretly for a few months now, learning my way into the Apple world, I've noticed one thing on here that is especially prominent. The MacBook is regarded as a bit of a toy. Pretty much every thread where someone asks what to buy, and suggests a MacBook, they are steered away. It's crazy! I've owned my Black 2.16GHz Intel C2D, 2GB RAM, for about 3 weeks now, and I can tell you, this bad boy can hold his own against my friends MacBook Pros, Alienwares, and custom gaming laptops. I took it to a LAN party, and while the settings weren't at max, I was playing Company of Heroes with 6 other players with no lag. Just because it doesn't have dedicated graphics, or a fancy-shmancy light up keyboard doesn't mean this bad boy can't pack a punch. JMHO A proud MacBook owner.
