Having never owned a Mac, mostly due to cost, the new MacBooks look pretty nice. All aluminum body, new graphics, new glass multi-touch trackpad, it all adds up to some nice looking notebook computers. Personally, I like the self loading DVD drives. The DVD trays on most Windows notebooks are an accident waiting to happen. Looks like Apple has updated their site with the new computers, but the Store is still down. One thing I noticed, the $999 entry level "white plastic" MacBook isn't being touted on their site. All the cool features in the rest of the MacBooks won't be in that one, but it does provide an entry point for those that don't have $1299 to shell out. It does seem odd that the cheapest MacBook is still about $400 more then a comparable Windows notebook. That said, you are buying quality and what looks look like a nice OS.
