I noticed that different color dells or Sony laptops all cost the same even if you get red, white etc. Why is the black macbook so much more? Has this been figured out yet? I found it to only have a larger hard drive. Is the black plastic that much more expensive to make? I am not trying to be a smart ass I just want to know. If I upgrade a white macbook to 160gb it is still $125 more for the black macbook. Most IBM thinkpads are black and those are cheaper with the same processors and configurations. I think when they first came out it was only a 20 gb difference over a white macbook and it was a $200 difference.
