So i just wanted Macbook users to tell me what they wish the Macbook had? things from the Macbook pro that maybe the macbook should have? things that should be standard.

Is there any improvements to it you think they should implement for a later generation?

this should be fun!

backlit keyboard :p

Well, if the MacBook had the same features of the MacBook Pro... then it would cease to be a MacBook. :black:
The MacBook lacks certain features to make it different from the MacBook Pro. Otherwise there would be no need to have a consumer and a professional line.

The MacBook Pro has the features that I wish the MacBook had. That might be my next purchase.

As DB pointed out, there will always be a "more affordable" and a "if only I had the money to afford that" version because it covers a larger consumer market...

Honestly, the backlit keyboard is the only thing I'd like. As said above, if I wanted a MacBook Pro, I would've spent my money on that.

I would prefer the body to be aluminum, not polycarbonate. A backlit keyboard is not all that useful to me as I touch-type.

I don't own a MB or anything like that but I think an improvement would be an option for a larger sized screen. Even though I don't need all the power the MBP offers I will probably buy the MBP over the MB because it offers more screen real-estate.

The backlite keyboard would be a nice extra but its not nesesscary i think the machine is great to begin with but one thing is fix the heat issue even with the new update it gets to hot for a laptop, also some small built in speakers would be nice the sound on it sucks and change out the plastic which supposedly rumors are that they already are. othsr than those few you if you want more buy the MBP
