You are correct that some people post the same thing in multiple forums, espcially when they have a problem! This forum has a pretty nice community and there are a lot of helpful people.
If you want to keep up with the very latest apple news then you can either check out the "Apple Rumours and Reports" message board on this forum (here)
but also other sites like digg.com
are good for up to the minute news (it is user submitted, and people vote for stories they think are good), digg.com has an apple section. Be careful though, some people can get a bit anti-apple in the comments section! I'm sure there are some other sites too, see what other people reccommend!
Otherwise, if you stick to this forum, plus mac rumours and macNN I think you will just pick things up here and there from different threads. By the way, if you have any final questions before you take the plunge and get the macbook, and you can't find the answers on the forum's search function
then feel free to make a post in the appropriate forum and ask away!
