I guess it's a good value considering what they sold for before this new release.
with apple its not about the hardware its about the software, i got a 1.25GHz single core powerbook g4 with 1gb ram and i can open 200 safari windows before it starts slowing down. if you can find another computer running windows with similar specs that can do that then please tell me, i know that opening loads of windows for surfing the internet isnt the most important but i also done a start up race with my powerbook and my sisters laptop which has got a 2.8GHz intel dual core with 4gb ram and a 7200rpm HDD with windows 7 64bit and it took about 2 minutes to load to a usable state, where as on my powerbook it took 45 seconds and its got a 5400rpm HDD and it loads programs a lot quicker

I would have already bought a 13" if it didn't have just an HD3000 in it. Srsly. Bought an Acer instead, when it falls apart in 9 months I'll but another MacBook.

I used to open up tons of windows on my PowerBook then run expose. Now, it wasn't silky smooth, there was a bit of lag but it did handle it well. Can't say though a PC couldn't do the same thing. Take any laptop, open up Google Chrome or Safari, hold Ctrl-N, should handle as well as any Mac using OS X does.

Or better yet, take a newer Mac and run Windows. See if the OS affects performance in terms of opening up hundreds of windows. I guarantee you're not going to see a difference. If anything, Windows 7 will hold up better in comparison with Snow Leopard.

Not quite sure why she'd need a GTX485M... but hey...

Aaaanyway, what always amazed me about my GF's old Core 2 Duo/2GB RAM Mac was the way it just didn't slow down. She never re-installed the OS since she bought it 3-4 years ago and it still ran as fast as it when she first got it. I know with my Windows laptop of the same spec, the same couldn't be said.

Me being mainly on older hardware, I think it's a pretty damn cool feature that whenever you updated, to tiger, or leopard or snow leopard.. your computer actually got faster. (provided you have ram to support whatver the upgrade needed)
