I do agree with you that 40GB of hd space and color doesn't really justify $200 preminum at least for me. One thing about that though is this. The black Macbook isn't just black plastic. It's actually aluminum case painted black so the case is made from entirely different material than the white Macbook. I'm not sure if the $200 price gap is easier to justify for having a aluminum outer shell though. I think hard plastic may be lighter and maybe even tougher than aluminum.

No the black one is still plastic. It's just that the finish is matte.
