The Black Macbook is Hot!


I finally had the chance to get my hands on a Macbook, a black Macbook. It’s probably because that I’ve read too much about the Macbooks in the net that when I finally saw one I was underwhelmed. I must admit that the display looks nice with the glossy screen. The colors are more vibrant and more crisp. The screen size is nice, bigger than my Powerbook. I didn’t have much experience using the keyboard but while I was using it, it didn’t feel any different. I guess that’s a good thing.

When I saw it, it had five Quicktime screens open but they weren’t playing. I looped playback all screens and played with Expose. I was impressed. There was no lagging. I then opened four Finder windows and Photobooth and played with Expose again. Wow! It was all smooth. No lag or sputtering. Nice. And it’s just on a 512MB RAM.

I then felt that I’ve played enough and was ready to leave when I remembered to see how much it weighed. I picked it up and noticed that it probably was as heavy as my Powerbook but as I moved my hand under the Macbook… Ow! It was hot. Very hot. Much hotter than my Powerbook gets. Perhaps it was because it was running since morning but damn! It was hot!

So that’s my first quick hands-on the black Macbook. I don’t feel any need to get one anytime soon.

My two cents.
