and

[www.appleinsider.com] (scroll down)

The first link really hilights the "glossiness" of the screen (looks as glossy as my wife's Dull 700m).

The black finish looks more like matte than gloss so fears of getting scratchy like the ipod may be alleviated. Good move on Apple's part, reminds me of the Pismo.

Yup, you can definately see the reflections in the screen.

One of my PC friends has a Toshiba laptop that has a glossy screen. Makes it look more like a TV screen than a computer screen. I don't know how well it going to do outside... however, I can't use my ibook outside very well either. I have to be in the shade for me to read my screen...

Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord, why don’t we?

We all know that people are the same where ever we go
There is good and bad in ev’ryone,
We learn to live, we learn to give
Each other what we need to survive together alive.

Ebony and ivory live together in perfect harmony
Side by side on my piano keyboard, oh lord why don’t we?

Ebony, ivory living in perfect harmony
Ebony, ivory, ooh

LOL. Though, shouldn't it be, "...side by side on my MACBOOK keyboard...."

Mirror mirror on my lap, a glossy screen is a load of... mixed blessing.

Reminds me of my friend's pc laptop that came with a clear plastic sheet taped in front of the display. He refused to remove the sheet for the whole time he owned it.

My local Apple Store this morning said that they haven't received any black MacBooks yet (white only) but expect them in by Friday.

I like the idea that the owner will be able to easily replace the hard drive.

Am I the only one that doesn't like the black? Looks cheap to me. Like a fake prop notebook you see in furniture stores. Not that I'd kick one out of bed or anything.

I would prefer a blood red MacBook.

So don't buy one.

That's the great thing about having choices.
