    Integrated graphics has more then enough punch to push office applications and websites to your screen. It's not a gaming laptop.

    I'd still like to have one though, but I really don't see myself putting it to any use.

    Agh, perfect spec for me - i just dont need anything other than intel integrated graphics, but what I do want is a bigger screen and resolution. I guess i'll end up buying a macbook pro, then.

    The other thing that makes me a little miffed is that apple still has not put a 2 button pad on the 'book.

    Apple could easily keep the asthetic of one button by using the mighty mouse tech, or just by simply putting a rocker under the button.

    It makes Windows using a little dificult without the contextual menu system, ya know?
    And yes, I know about the 3rd party additives that make it so you can use a Fkey as the right click, but thats besides the point.

    You can tap with 2 fingers to right click. Not sure if it works in Windows yet (in fact Im reasonably sure it doesnt as MacBook isnt an available option when downloading bootcamp) but Im sure it will at some point.

    Really? Go figure... that'd be nice to know. I'm gunna have to have fun with that one :)

    Within windows, tapping on the MBP doesn't seem to be an option at all (not from what I've found anyways) so I don't expect it to be different on the MB. But Bootcamp offers a monumental loss in functionality over OSX

    The pricing just puts my 4yr old Alienware to shame. Albeit, mine does have a larger monitor, the appeal of this laptop is just breathtaking. They definitely did inject the essence of Sexology (totally made up statement), into this latest release. I'm ashamed to say that I'd pay that extra money for the 20gigs and Black Paint. :(


    :D

    Yah, i've tried, it doesn't work in windows. That was my point I belive. Thanks though.

    I remember my 1.33 GHz PowerBook had that feature when I installed iScroll2, it make things much nicer.

    I wouldnt splash out yet. Apparently there are issues with flaking paint (although it was when sratched with the guys fingernail)
