    behind you!
    i know there has been millions of these threads, and i also know it comes down to a personal preference.
    BUT aside from which you think looks better what are the design pros and cons of a white Macbook and the black Macbook?
    scratching, dirty, discloration, warping, cracking?
    which one is better overall and easier to maintain?

    White one= scratches and potential discoloration.
    Black one= oily (dirty) surface and potential peeling (although the peeling is very rare I've seen some cases, not as much as discoloration)

    I went black because of store availability (betters specs without BTO) and because it looks better to me, I hate scratches and I clean my computers on a weekly basis so filthiness isn't an issue.

    cons= dirty, gets scratches
    pros= cheaper doesnt collect fingerprints, looks better when using the screen

    cons= collects finger prints, more money, plastic comes off
    pros=looks so much kooler

    If you dont really care get the white, but if you have the money and you are willing to spend the extra 200$ or w/e it is, than go ahead
