These laptops are so awesome but I wish I could buy one without paying the premium for the OS...it's excellent to use for most things but I end up missing all the fun you get tinkering and dealing with the quirks of Windows OS's(/OS'/OSs or however you write it?).

It does feel a little like the MacBook needs to be £100 cheaper again to become a truly compelling proposition. Perhaps volume (and maybe education) orders would see significant additional discounting, but for the man on the street the 13" MacBook Pro is surely where it's at.

no way apple will let their plastic book outspec the base metal book.





they also removed the infra red, and the battery meter ;)

@ Ben. The Apple HE discount reduces the price difference between the 13"MBP and the MacBook, to £88.12. (£701.48 vs £789.60). Of course that could change with the expected refresh at the end of this month.





Also - The HDD on the MBP may be smaller but its a 5 minute job to change it for a £60 500Gb Unit.

oooh these unibodies....I'm got the old polycarbonate which is rather prone to cracks. Mine has an edge snapped off and the common front edge snap off problem where the lid closing ridges put too much pressure below. Pity one can't buy a unibody and put the old macbooks innards in.

@dev - Just install Bootcamp or, better yet, VMware Fusion, install Windows on your Mac and you can do all the tinkering you would want to (as there's limited tinkering for OS X).





Plus, you can install Ubuntu on it as well, thereby having the choice of three top class operating systems. The only downside being the extra cost of the software.

Surely you mean UNlimited tinkering of OS X! You know it's UNIX, right? The most powerful command shells, etc. Not to mention all the gazillions of utilities that modify the interface. And AppleScript. Did you forget about AppleScript? And Automator. . . Please.

considering you can buy an sd to usb adapter for a few pence not having a slot isnt such a disaster

Plus unlike the MBPs, the MacBook has no glass in front of the screen so it doesn't double as a mirror :D

Almost £800 for an entry-level Apple laptop? Clearly Cupertino have as low an opinion as i do of its customers. And betelgeus an additional USB to SD card would hardly be practical to carry along with it unless ofcourse its manufactured by Apple?

Personally I was lucky enough to buy one of the very short lived Aluminium MacBooks, which has the looks and feel of quality, a backlit keyboard and a 250Gb hard drive, yes it too is missing a firewire port and an SD slot, but I can't for the life of me see why they decided to replace the plastic Macbooks with aluminium ones like mine, to only then go back to plastic again, very strange!
