shopping cart (black vs white macbook)
courtesy of: apple.com
For about as long as macbooks have been out, I've wanted the white one soooo bad (and i mean really bad- it was on my wishlist for the longest), I mean it was so clean and beautiful figured why not and it didn't hurt since charles had a white ibook (yes an ibook , or at least I think its an ibook , but he got it before the macbook hype- got to double check on that) and it was pretty cute. But anyways, as time went on, I've leaned towards black a lot more (lexus IS 350 in black vs tungsten pearl although the tungsten pearl is really really beautiful). And with that being said, I've been leaning towards a black macbook for awhile now. Actually, I've been juggling between a black macbook vs a white one, I just can't freaking decide! So i've done some research.
Say-So: Black or White Macbook
out of 129 people , 69 prefer black over white (white was at 42 , 16 was neither but the black macbooker comments were a bit of a nonsense, but that's not the point; they voted for the black one and probably didn't any more reasons to explain their choice of preference) and they presented the following arguments which makes sense to me :
-a majority have mentioned that the glowing apple stands out a lot more than the white (obviously makes sense) didn't think of that at first. Even though the white macbookers have said that the black one looks like a dell (I don't think so) the glowing apple DOES stand out more which means you can distinguish the difference between a dell and a macbook. But I'm not being materialistic, the reason why I'M getting a macbook is because I've had a PC desktop since the 4th grade and a PC laptop when I was a freshman in high school and both have gotten viruses like no other. When we got an iMac two years ago, I was pleased with it and they (Macs) rarely get viruses (I should know, Charles has been a Mac dude since he was a kid and told me how reliable they are) so hey that works out for me cause I have a LOT of pictures and would not want to lose any of it. But back on track, the glowing apple does make sense.
-black macbooks can be maintained easier than the yellowing of a white one. I am sure I am not going to take time to wash my hands and clean my laptop. White gets dirty. My iMac is dirty (or at least the keyboard is due to my fingertips I guess).
-black is more professional and grown up
-those who have chosen the white as their preference, chose it because it's cheaper (not a good reason at all).
-black is just sexy.
There's a lot more arguments too it but I think I've come to a conclusion. Maybe I should just pay an extra thousand dollars and settle for the Macbook Pro and solve my indecisiveness. Gosh I hate variety (especially when there's either a black or a white). Maybe in terms of fashion, I can think of it as how every girl needs a LBD (little black dress). No girl needs a WBD, they need a LBD! Sigh. As I continue the juggle between a black macbook or a white, my preference for a black macbook is starting to outweigh my prolonged cravings for the white.
As much as I've always wanted the white, the black one it is =)
Now I just have to figure out how I am going to distinguish the difference between my black macbook and kris' macbook that he already has (little punk only gets to pay for half while my parents pay the other half. I after all have to pay for it all by myself- gosh darnits).
