    I'm using a MacBook White. I used to use an iBookG4, my 1st Mac. Here's what I miss that the iBookG4 had.

    I miss concave keys and the general feel of the iBook keyboard

    I miss having a numlock key

    I miss that I could plug a jack into the headphone jack and boot silently. On the MacBook the startup sound is audible through the speakers regardless

    I guess that's all.

    I just moved from an iBook G4 to a uMBP this weekend.

    I much prefer the chiclet keys.

    I never used the number lock. If I had a bunch of numbers to input, I used my bluetooth keyboard with number pad.

    Never cared about the boot noise, since I pretty much never shut it down. I put it to sleep only, unless I'm restarting for a reason.

    It's taken me a couple of days to get used to the multitouch trackpad, though. I keep wanting to rest my thumb on the bottom, where the button used to be. :eek:

    That's all for me.

    I hope you enjoy more than you miss. :)
