This is my first time using Apple, but it was easy to get up and on the Internet. I found out that the delete key will let you page backwards. If you click the apple on the toolbar you can tweak some settings under "systems preferences". I changed the trackpad settings under "keyboard and mouse" to add dragging and took off "ignore accidental trackpad input". I had to change them back because my cursor would jump around when I was writing emails. I did add clicking to the trackpad input with no problems.
I easily added 2 gig of ram. I bought it from new egg for $176 gskill brand 20-231-066. I used a precision screwdriver size 00 to loosen the 3 phillips head screws. You don't remove the screws from the L-shaped bracket, just loosen them. When you push the memory in far enough (and it takes a little force) the levers will have some resistance. When replacing the bracket, there is a notch on the short side so put it in first. When you've done that, click the Apple on the toolbar and click "about this Mac" and your new memory should show up.
I then downloaded Aspyr's game agent to find out what games my system can play. To my surprise, the game agent says that I have 256 mb of video memory, not the 64 that I expected to see. I checked Intel's website to read up on the GMA 950 and wasn't enlightened much, but it did seem like the GMA 950 could increase the memory if resources were available. It also said that it's upgradeable. Perhaps someone more sophisticated in computers can explain this in a later review! The game agent also said it wasn't sure which games would run with an Intel chip, so I will just read the game reviews to find out what works.Read more ›
Mine is also whisper quiet, fast, and the keyboard is a dream. Heat not worth complaining about. I agree, better to have whisper quiet than loud fans.
My MacBook would have taken a few spills already had it not been for the magsafe power cord. And did I mention the built in bluetooth makes going wireless so easy for a non computer geek like myself?
My only complaint is the low volume from the speakers. For such a dream machine, I don't know why Apple didn't give us more volume!!! Surely the next gen will have better volume.
Even my PC friends think this is an awesome machine.
Don't wait a minute longer to order yours. You won't regret it!
What I HATE about the Macbook(and also a 17" Powerbook I bought to play around with) is that these things COOKS- an egg! Flip it upside down and they work as George Foreman grill and you can fry burgers on these. Updating to 10.5 Leopard is even more demanding. In Summer I wonder if the laptop is heating up the room more. It makes the Macs feel inefficient and even (undeservedly) low tech and unreliable. I hope they use better cooling and one of those centrino or whatever comes up next cooler running processors.
Sometimes I wonder if the white plastic casting will melt. It hasn't but it has turned yellow at the track pad, palm rest etc where in comes with contact with human skin. This is a manufacturing defect and Apple has acknowledged it and fixed the issue on later White Macbooks. They offer a free replacement (the palmrest etc only) for the earlier Macbooks IF it is still under the one year warranty. Well, I didn't know about this so I missed the deadline . While most Macbooks are quite problem free, there are many other issues with reliability with the Macbooks and Macbook Pros you can easily find online with a search.

My first Mac. Switching is like learning to drive a right hand drive car. A little frustrating at times but the MAC OSX is Very well designed and intuitive and user friendly. The upcoming Windows Vista looks a lot like a MAC OS.
If you're new, your local store can offer help if you have questions. I also signed up for Pro Care. $99/year . Also bought .Read more ›
