Woohoo!! A few months ago, I contributed to onmac.net, hoping that somone would be motivated by the nearly $13,000 offered up to get Windows running on a MacBook. They did, and two weeks later, Apple came out with Bootcamp which did the same thing but better. I swore that THE DAY the 13 inch widescreen Macbook came out, I’d buy one.

Today, my friend Bun told me that Apple released the new 13 inch widescreen MacBook. I called the Apple store down near Union Square in San Francisco to make sure they had some. The guy returned my call at 10:55 and I was on my way at 10:56. I got there, ordered the black one with an extra gig of RAM and waited about 30 minutes to pay for it. Just as I was paying, the manager made an announcement that they were all out of black MacBooks. My order was already placed, though, right? YEP! I got the LAST black Macbook at that Apple store. I held it closely, hoping not to get jumped by rabid Apple fans (there were a few angry ones demanding to see the manager..like that’d help).

Sooo.. I now own this beauty

13.3-inch widescreen display, 1280 x 800 resolution, 2.0GHz Intel Core Duo1, 1.25GB memory SODIMMs, 80GB SuperDrive (DVD±RW, CD-RW) :-D!!!

    I have purchased two Macs (mac mini and an Ibook 12 inch both are G4’s) in the last 2 months…

    I think I am moving to the dark side. Let me know if you like the MacBook as it will be my next computer purchase.

    Lee! I was in Seattle this weekend! I went to visit my friend who works on the PowerShell team. He took me around the Microsoft campus and we went up to Vancouver to have chinese food and Poutine.

    I totally love my Macbook. It’s incredibly fast. Since you already have a couple and its not a burning issue, I’d probably wait till Rev B comes out. Apple rarely gets it right the first time. This laptop’s issue is that it gets way too hot..that is my only complaint. So absolutely buy a Macbook..but just wait a little while :)

    Looks like one have to touch Apple’s Macs, feel it, to understand your love for it. In my area (on the other side of planet :-) ) Mac’s just used for some graphic jobs. Samsung, Toshiba and HP with its notebooks rule the market and make nice peace of hardware.
