New computer time soon

UPDATE: I bought a brand new black MacBook for $1300.

My next portable will be a MacBook. I was researching which one I should get and it was down to the MacBook (White/Black) or the MacBook Pro.One thing I found funny was that Apple charge more money just for the black MacBook. Is this racist? Are people stupid?The only different between the stock unit (without addons or customization) is that the black MacBook has a slightly larger hard disk drive (160GB) and it retails in Canada at $1649 the White stock unit costs $1449 but if you upgrade to the 160GB hard disk drive it costs $1531. This specification is as follows:The White MacBook

White MacBook

  • 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM – 2x512MB
  • 160GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
  • Superdrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
  • Keyboard/Mac OS – U.S. English
  • AirPort Extreme Card & Bluetooth

The Black MacBook

Black MacBook

  • 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • 1GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM – 2x512MB
  • 160GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
  • Superdrive 8x (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW)
  • Keyboard/Mac OS – U.S. English
  • AirPort Extreme Card & Bluetooth

Again, go back to those prices… Why is the white $118 cheaper than the black MacBook, or even, why is the black MacBook $118 MORE expensive? Strange… I would have bought a white MacBook anyway.
