After being Apple-laptop-less for several months, the new Macbooks look great to me. Except for the glossy screen, its everything I've wanted in a laptop. I was going to buy one from J&R with cashback, but I got impatient so I drove out to the Apple store and picked one up. Not waiting a few days cost me a good $175, but oh well. Here my 2c: Screen is brighter and looks great at a glance, but its not a great screen. Poor contrast even after calibration. Very very poor viewing angles. I'm spoiled with a 23" cinema display and S-ips Thinkpad as comparison points. Its way thinner than its white brother sitting next to it, and that's something I needed before I bought a Macbook. The thin Pro had me spoiled. Looks SEXY. Its finally aluminum. I consider this a true mini-pro. Keyboard is nice, I like the chiclets. Has a good feel to it. The trackpad is wicked, I think it works great (but to put things in perspective, I've been using a Thinkpad nipple for 2 months ). I could see myself getting tired of it, but it hasn't happened yet. It still feels too heavy. I hated that about the first Macbook (felt like a brick) and while this is better, its not quite there. They should have shot for 4lbs, but that would have put it too close to the Macbook Air. Temperatures are great, I think its much cooler than the last gen. I'll add some pictures if anybody hasn't already seen it all.
