Hi everyone, I'm new in this forum. Actually I don't even have a Mac yet. I'm planning to get a MacBook. But I'm hearing about this "Showdown" going down tommorrow with Apple, and there may be a chance a better MacBook will be offered. Not too sure. But I was looking in these forums when I saw that people are complaining about the Blackbook being 150$ more just because it's black. I actually found out you get the Blackbook with 1GB Ram + 80 gig hd, compared to a white MacBook with 1GB Ram + 80 gig hd, the price difference is only 40$ difference. But in order to do so, you have to be a college student, and get the college discount. Moderators, I'm sorry if this item was posted before. I searched, and didn't see anything posted simliar to this. If there was, I must have missed it. Go easy on me >.< :blind: . So yeah College Students! Get that Cheaper Blackbook xD <btw do you get more discounts if your buy directly from the store? i hear you get 20% discount as a college student? <.< >
Also, I heard on the long run, the black book's key board smears from the oil from your hands and becomes shiny instead of a matte look. Is that true ?

really ? cuz it works for me. go to apple.com click on the store tab and on the right side click Education, Savings for Students, Faculty and Staff. Click as a college student, choose your college, and you get to save. That's how I did it... Maybe they offer more discounts for certain colleges? o.O

Well that's just your experience. For every one bad experience there are 99 great experiences if not more. And with Windows machines you have to pay for most of the software that you need, as opposed to Macs that come with just about all the software a regular user will need. If you compare the costs bewtween software and even hardware macs are cheaper than most windows machines.

Still even with software it is as much and a lot of times cheaper. A great computer and it is loaded with software. I added that to show the value you get. And you can't steal all of your software, there comes a point when you have to buy something and Apple provides it for you.
