Just wondering which color of the macbook you guys prefer: the glossy white or the matte black?

And also, why?

P.S. (Thanks to virstulte for reminding it) The white one is cheaper by approx. 100$ // Normally 150$ cheaper but we have to upgrade the hard drive to the same one as the black's one =D

white, 1: it looks cleaner, 2: its typical Apple 3: its classic (when i think of apple, i think white) 4: it matches my iPod!!!

it depends...the difference between the 2 is the hard drive space. if money isn't a problem, i'd go with black. it's a lot nicer and doesn't show dirt as much.

well, MBP is designed for using professional applications like final cut and photoshop, etc etc.

therefore, in this case i suggest you would purchase a macbook pro.

White is the standard for Apple so immediately everyone knows your awesome and own an Apple.

Personally I won't think you need the MBP just for Photoshop, as long as you get high end and beefed up with RAM.

Definitely agreed, I paid 1500 for my MacBook White with 2GB ram and 120 GB hard drive, with a SuperDrive and 2.16 GHz Core 2 Duo.

Upgrade the ram, it's an upgrade you DEFINITELY will not regret. I have NEVER run out of ram, even when I pushed it to the limits by running iMovie and GarageBand at the same time with open files.

hmm doesnt the MBP have a better motherboard (now that I think of it?).... ie- a faster bus I think.

so while all the basic specs are the same (cpu, ram, hard disk) its still a slightly slower computer (ithink) that and it lacks a graphics card (AKA BALLS)

Okay, seems like Photoshop is fine on the Macbook, but how about the other Adobe applications such as Illustrator, Flash, Premiere Pro, etc.? And also, will I be able to link it to my TV to watch movies and pictures?

I will be purchasing my first mac in 1 month and I'm still reluctant in buying a macbook or a MBP >.<

The black should be the default option from Apple, as I remember all original PowerBooks were black. I choose black!

Black is better, it has more HD, more RAM and the black looks more elegant and nice, although i think white is more original and is the natural color of the Macs :)

I like black too, but the top of the line white macbook and the blackbook have the same specs for the most part, except for harddrive space (+ $75 for 160 GB harddrive). But black mac all the way!

I was under the impression that all MacBook models come with 1 GB of RAM standard. Thus, the only way the "Blackbook" could have more RAM is if you paid seperately for an upgrade.
