  • Quote: Originally posted by hwaechter shame though that the keyboard, ports and drive slot are still silver though... Funny that lots of people are complaining about the MacBook coming in only white or black without an aluminum option, and it…
  • Quote: Originally posted by maccabea So, could anyone let me know which HD (Manufacturer/Model) Apple puts in the Macbook with the 120GB HD? The 120GB drive is probably the 5400RPM Seagate Momentus 5400.2. The actual drive product numb…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Homestar06 Helps a ton, thanks a lot. My needs are not very specific except I want the best I can buy now that will last me 4+ years through college (if thats possible). I definitely want the macbook pro, just not sure…
  • iToppers.com and MacStyles.com both plan on having skins available for the MacBooks within the next few weeks as well. MacStyles.com can do some pretty cool things with their skins, and they also do skins for the trackpad/palmrest area. -natec
