It doesn't matter if you're black or white.

Actually I have to ask myself that question soon. I'll need a MacNook for college, but I want a white one. But I still need fair performance, which comes only in black. So I guess I'll trade off some processor speed for the sake of a MacBook that matches my iPod and iMac.

I agree. A couple hundred extra to have black is ridiculous. I'm just bummed that when i bought my white in july 06' I forgot to tell them that I wanted the 80gig HD. But it didn't matter when I got home and opened the box.

If you get the latest models, they are identical in performance, processor speed and RAM The black comes with a larger hard disk.

I have both. They're the same speed, just one is more difficult to find in the dark.

Gotta be the Apple Iconic White. Black looks greasy. White is Apple's signature color. My wife has a black hp laptop and a black dell desktop at work, and a black blackberry, and my black cellphone, wow now that I look around, my TV is black too, so is my house phone. What's white though? Only my beautiful Macbook!!!!!
