After yesterday’s piece on the MacBook’s HDD access door I have a little more feedback on the MacBook.
The glossy screen is nice, but more difficult to read from the side. I prefer the satin screen of the MacBook Pro. The shell of the machine is a very similar texture to the older Pismo models, but a more deeper black color.
The MacBook now opens and closes without a button latch and no longer has a metal hook to keep it closed, it’s all magnetic. There’s an indentation in the front where you put your finger allowing you to pry the screen up.
The sleep light is in the front right corner and is nearly invisible when not on.
The weird thing is the new style keyboard: rather than a one-piece keyboard which attaches to the top of the laptop, the MacBook now has a top case that completely covers the top of the laptop and the keys.
