I got a new, black MacBook a few days ago, and had time to play with it for a bit by now.

When the machine arrived, i added 2GB of RAM and exchanged the Harddrive with a 7200rpm Hitachi drive. After that, i connected my old Powerbook G4, and transfered the contents onto the MacBook, a process that went suprisingly smooth.

I don’t have any heat problems, even playing World of Warcraft for longer periods of time does not raise the temperature to more than 75 C on the CPU, which seems to be fine. The machine does not feel hot either, at least not on battery power – which is when it counts for me at least.

The speed is amazing, compared to the old G4, everything feels a lot snappier. Booting is a lot faster, but i don’ really care about that too much, as i normally never shutdown my laptop.

So far, i am very happy with the machine. Right now I am writing this entry outside, with a tree behind me in the sun. The screen is ok for that, and certainly better than the G4 screen.
