I was wondering if the MacBook Aluminum Unibody 13.3 inch was rare in any way?
Considering they only made it for about a year.

Most Apple computers are only made for about a year, then they are discontinued.

So I would say no, but I could be wrong.

I'd guess there were only somewhere between 6-10 million of them produced.

Guess it depends on what your definition of rare happens to be.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I was just curious...

What would that be compared to the 13.3 inch MacBook Pro?

There are two models of unibody MB, with respectively 2.0 and 2.4 GHz. The latter model does have lighted keyboard. As a matter of fact... I'm writing this post on it

Other differences are:

In favor of MBP 13:
- FireWire
- SD-Card slot
In favor of UMB 13.3:
- SATA 3.0 Gbps instead of 1.5 Gbps

I have an S-100, Z80 CPM system w/ 64KB RAM in the attic from 1981.
It has the Heathkit RS-232 teletype video terminal to go with it - AND... the 8", 360KB floppy drive.

It isn't rare either.

I thought they fixed the SATA 1.5 issue on the MBP with an update? If not, that's insane.

If possible at all, I really hope they did.
