    Does anyone think apple will ever bring back the White MacBook?
    I love mine .. had it since 2008, its still working amazingly .. hasnt slowed down at all. Its just that I might want a new one after maybe 3 more years maybe less.. cuz the ram is kinda low and the screen is washed out a bit ( but i did calibrate it a bit ) .. i just would like a newer white macbook, like the older ones use to be , but with the new displays

    Highly doubt it. Although if they're going for the way-back machine.. I'd prefer a clamshell. k-thx-bye.

    Nope - the MBA is the new MB. I don't see that changing.

    A colleague showed up the other day at our informal Starbucks meeting with a Pink Sony Vaio. He took a lot of ribbing about it and said he had to borrow it from his wife as his machine was in the shop. Yeah right, was the unanimous response. Another white MacBook? No thanks. I'll take black or aluminum.

    I think the aluminum MBP/MBA is a work of art and apparently so do a lot of the competition
    they have imitated it as close as they can.

    What kind of pink are we talking about here? I also like the aluminum. It scratches easily though. >_<"

    If you’re just talking outside appearance, I don’t think we’ll see any variation of the current all-aluminum style for a couple/few years. But eventually it will get very boring and stale, and Apple will need to provide a fresh new look. IMHO it already is feeling a little tired, especially with all the same-but-different competing computers flooding the market.

    I don't think many people thought "bellbottoms" would come back in style...but they did!

    Who knows...some day...maybe the White Apple laptop will return.

    It could definitely come back, but just because it comes back does not mean it will be the same material. I doubt Apple would bring it back being exactly the same as the last model.

    If you want a new white one that badly, try this: Colorware - Computers

    For me nothing beats the Powerbook G4. It's keyboard is so much better for me than either my Air or Pro.

    Guess we each have our preferences.

    In the words of the song..........

    Everything old is new again

    So probably yes.
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    I have never had a MacBook but I have iBooks and MacBook pros. I like the MacBook but they are not going to bring it back.
