    I use pcs at my school and hate them but I am biased because I grew up on mac. My favorite thing is the trackpad on the uni body macbook. I have used all other macbooks and was iffy about the glass trackpad. Now when I sometimes use my bros black macbook I cant stand the mouse. What are your favorite things about the macbook?

    The black keys, to be honest. Apple's got a one-of-a-kind keyboard... Rich black chicklet keys with a backlit option (I'm talking 2.4GHZ model).

    I agree I Love the trackpad it makes things easier and faster. I'm so used to it I sometimes forget when I' m using my brothers laptop I try doing the gestures and then realize it not my macbook.

    Trackpad for sure. Every other trackpad feels like crap now :p

    I also like the black/silver motif Apple has going.

    The fact that I can open the display without holding the base.

    Was that being sarcastic? :rolleyes: The magnets are pretty strong, I almost always have to hold the base.

    In another thread almost everybody said their magnets were weak. Too weak infact. My magnets just fine.

    Hmm, well, the magnets are weak if you hold the macbook upside down...but if it's like on a desk, and you try to open it, I have a hard time opening it without holding the base to keep it from moving around.

    Toshiba is great with trackpad sizes.

    No....? All of my old laptops had heavy screens that forced you to hold the base, not so with my MacBook. I've never had an issue with the magnets.

    I never really thought about it until your post, but what is up with all the stickers on the PC laptops, or PCs in general? I love the design oriented Macintosh computers!!

    multi touch is amazing.


    besides for that Leopard really makes the MacBook shine. can't say the hardware is the absolute best... expose and spaces are great


    but it is plenty fast for me and haven't had a problem yet (actually had my first kernel panic today while using crossover)

    I gotta say the Al Unibody design and the backlit keyboard. And the fact that it's snappy as hell now that I've dropped 4GB of RAM into it. There's nothing I dislike about it I guess lol.

    I don't know. Multi-Touch is PLAIN awesome, the backlit keyboard is gorgeous and the overall design is near perfect... The unibody MacBooks (and Pro) easily have my favourite computer design, hand down. For now.

    I like how easy it is to take off the big aluminum piece on the bottom of the macbook so I can clean the fan in there easily because you would be surprised how much dust collects in that little fan:apple:
