    hmmmm, frets on fire (free guitar hero clone), i know you may think that is wierd for a laptop, shockwave, flash games, i like the new need for speed prostreet.

    P.S I the aluminum way faster overall, is the white one slow, which is faster??

    The Aluminum is way faster than the White one in terms of gaming because of the Nvidia chip. If you're going to play games like a Guitar Hero Clone, which I expect needs quite high system requirements since the regular GH3 needs at least 2.4 GHz. As for Need for Speed pro street, good luck getting good FPS on Intel Integrated X3100.

    If you can live without NFS, White MacBook is just fine.
