Same old Microsoft. No innovation. It's like they never even heard of the word. This looks just like the first generation iPhone with the metal back and plastic bottom on the back, except its a candy bar shape.
If they do discontinue the white MacBook and go all aluminum with the line that would be great! But please...no more combo drives on the low end model. That just doesn't make any sense nowadays when super drives are so cheap, and with your lowest priced white MacBook containing a superdrive. I'll miss firewire, though I'll get over it.
