    In my opinion, don't buy the new Macbook. After reading this article, i've come to the conclusion the new MacBook will be severely disappointing to the average user.

    Ignore most of this article, scroll down to the screen comparisons between the new MacBook and the new MacBook Pro. The screen on the MacBook is horribly unacceptable. I can imagine being horribly upset if I bought a Macbook, and I can only assume others will be as well.

    They do show some good points. But I mean I still really want one.

    The rest of the review is fine, and I'm sure the computer is very nice, but I just can't have a screen that bad.

    I just got back from the Apple Store and the MacBook's screen looked just fine. Though I didn't run any video like what Gizmodo did. Maybe it was the angle of which they took the pictures?
