I heard off of Slashdot that Apple was very generous on the thermal
paste in the Macbooks, so it may overheat terribly and have the fan
turn on often. I don't know if Apple has corrected the problem.
Worth the money for basically an Intel Core Duo laptop speced to
Apple's requirements of running MacOS X? Hmmm... Depends on if
you're going to slap Windows on it as a dual-boot under Boot Camp. If
so, well, that's basically dual-boot BSD/Windows. You could save
money with Windows/Linux dual-boot... and not get your legs burned
