    its looks nice but at that price which is so close to the pro; it might seem more sense to add a little more (20% more) for that beautiful black bezel, backlit keyboard and firewire 800 port.

    Now if it was around $800-900 then that would surely turn heads.

    Plus one on this but sure it will go down later this year or maybe this coming December.


    It was just newly introduced thats why price still steep.

    For sure price of this will go down because dollar rates getting lower as remittances gets flooding in because of holiday is already starting.

    Nice redesign. I hope the new unibody plastic MacBooks won't have issues regarding hairline cracks.

    Must be a hard choice for those guys on the market for new notebook. MB vs. MBP13

    I just wish they were priced at $899.

    This certainly looks promising, i'm looking at a Rev B model early next year, maybe with the new i5 chips and a lower price point. I wonder if the unibody construction solved the problem with polycarbonate cracking found in the old ones :D Can't wait to see one up close and user reviews

    cool design factor... it would make a nice option for those on the lookout for a new laptop... it would have been better at a much lower price point to entice the switchers... imho... ;o)

    I think with this out, the only difference that the buyers will consider (aside from the small price difference) is the backlit keyboard, better aluminum casing, glass display and firewire. And take note, the base unibody polycarbonate has 250GB unlike the base model pro which has 160GB HD
