My MacBook finally arrived last weekend. It’s small and white, so I’ve named it ととろ (Totoro) :–)
A few quick notes:
- the packaging is excellent, the box is incredibly thin
- it looks a lot like my old ibook from the outside, just a bit thinner and wider
- the screen is great, a big improvement over the ibook
- the keyboard seems good
Obligatory unpacking photos follow…
‘MacBook box - it’s a slim little fellow!’
‘Unpacking the MacBook’
I had to wait 4 weeks for the white 2.0GHz MacBook stock to arrive. I was considering paying the extra $200 for the black because I was sick of waiting. They look nice, like the old pismo powerbook, but also a lot like a normal pc laptop, and it just doesn’t seem like it’s worth the extra just for the color (although something less prone to scratching might be nice).
Now I have to install the 120GB drive in it and get everything transferred across!
