    My MacBook arrived in the mail today and I can't stay off it. Leopard is definatly the best operating system I have ever used. Now I made a thread earlier but no one replied so please follow up on this issue. It is a black MacBook and I heard of the matte finish peeling off. Is this something I should worry about? Thanks in advance. Great to be part of the Mac world!

    I didn't even have the money to get a new one dude. I went refurbished. This one will do just fine for me, I know people who still have the G4 book and still have no intention of updating.

    I nearly gave in to buying one also. I'm holding my ground with a Dell until the updates.

    some things you should be aware about using a macbook. It is a great computer and even better OS.

    Regarding black and the peeling off part, yes it is true. From what I hear, people get their black matte finish deteriorating or peeling off just couple months of use. This is bound to happen to black macbooks. Luckily, in many cases, it's so slight that it's hard to notice unless you are looking really close at it.

    Another thing is that the palmrest and the thin piece of plastic on it might begin to crack after few months. Just remember it to close it soflty and not to bang it close as that will definately make the cracking process go faster. I've had my white macbook since january 08 and have no cracking palmrest. (If you bought the extended warrenty, it is covered)

    Other than that, enjoy your macbook!!!

    Oh, and you payed an extra $100 for a black one...
    If you select the $1,349 white one (CDN Dollars, $1,299 USD), and get the hard drive upgrade you get the exact same specs as the black one, but $100 cheaper...

    I would have still picked the black one if I were him... In My Opinion White things look dirtier and trashier than black over time. If I ever get a mac I'm gonna choose the black one no doubt.

    By the way congrat's.
