Wow ... the new MacBook looks really nice. I had an eye on this one for a long time and now it's getting really hard not to go to an Apple store and buy one.

All the MacBooks feel really nice too. What's odd is that only the MacBook Air has a "button" on the trackpad. It seems out of place! I suspect it will be gone at the next MBA refresh.
