I don't get it...

...what's boring about faster CPUs and more memory when the price does not change. That equates to "more for the money" which is never boring to me.

Yeah, if it's so boring why post at all? I'm not sure what everyone was expecting.

I wonder where that troll that complains about the lack of an upgradeable headless single cpu mac is.

Personally, I would have preferred to see another gig of ram added to the black macbook instead of the extra 40gb of drive space.

But dahling, vee ahr vaiting for something more exziting. I vant to use my Macbuhks as a Roomba. My cahpet gets so-o-o dusty!

People are so easily bored. I agree that more processor power, Ram, and HD for the same price is cool. Now where is that $1500 hundreds I left laying around the other day...

A Mac Mini Roomba's a frightening mental image.

ok, true, it's not a bad thing. But the problem I (and probably others too) have is that it's a smaller upgrade compared to what the competition has been doing. If they would've gone with the new Intel platform, the MacBook would've been much more competetive, like it's first incarnation. Now it's too much behind in the horsepower/price area to be a good choice, at least from my perspective.

Actually, I think they dropped the price by 50 in the UK too, which is a bonus!
