What would you prefer, a solid black plastic (glossy for the most part) MacBook or a flat black painted MacBook like what is currently sold? Personally, I wish it was plastic, it seems the current ones you can scratch the paint off of to reveal a normal white MacBook underneath. I might even buy one if it was black plastic. What do you guys think?

And if you peel the next layer you'll find duckies and bunnies. Just watch out for the mooning nuns.

I'm not sure what your saying

I'm not sure what your saying. Are you saying I'm lying about the white underneath, or are you just saying that for the hell of it? Because, go ahead and scratch a small spot somewhere on one, it's definitely white under there. I'm not saying it's the EXACT same thing as a white MacBook, I'm just saying it's white under the black paint.

Color aside, it's not worth t

Color aside, it's not worth the extra $200.00 dollars for a black paintjob and 20GB of hard disk space. Not to mention one friend I know has a Black Macbook and a White AC. How messed up is that?
