Seriously the white model owns the black one. I've seen both models in real life and white is the way to go. The black plastic looks way too cheap for me.
Maybe the black casing costs more to produce than the white, ever considered that?kant said:I'm rather confused.
Looking at the apple store right now. White 2.0ghz MB is $1299 and the black one is $1499. Only difference is the hard drive size. Bumping the white one to the 80gb drive takes it to $1349.

Opinions are like a**holes, everybody has one.BWhaler said:Bullsh&t.
No one who has really seen the black one would say it looks like a laptop from the 80's.
Sorry, but either you weren't paying attention or your are lying about seeing the new Macbooks.
Well, if you have a "limited edition" of anything, it will cost more per unit. I doubt there's a $150 cost difference, but I imagine that it does cost apple more to have two colors. Inventory, different production lines for the cases, component inventory, etc. If they made all of them black then I bet the costs would be the same as making all of them white. But I suspect Apple is taking the white version as standard, and charging a premium for the black version to cover all of the costs of adding a second color. In a way that's bogus because they could make black standard, charge a premium for white, and end up in exactly the same place.dr_lha said:Maybe the black casing costs more to produce than the white, ever considered that?
I don't personally believe that, but its a possibility.
