So, My iBook got trashed, the insurance co put me through the wringer but they are finally sending me a cheque.

The money will cover the middle macbook, or for around 100 pounds sterling (200$) I could get the black book.

Now in theory I think the Blackbook is a good idea, I work a lot in the field (soldier) and my macbook would be used everywhere from the desert to the muddy fields of Germany,(in the back of an APC)
so Black would make sense, My wifes white one seems to pick up dirty smudges

But is it worth the extra cash? it seems that the only difference is the colour and a bigger HD, i use a 80GB USB HD anyway for all my films.

Thoughts people??
