    I think it's a scam site and the specs are incorrect. The only 2.13 GHz white macbook I know of is the currently available one, and it comes with an NVidia 9400M. Those specs are correct for the 2.0 GHz white macbook (now discontinued).

    CUZ THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE MIDDLE AND IT'S GIVING ME A RASH

    Dick Smith isn't a scam, it's a popular electronics chain in Australia. I would expect those listings are just inaccurate.

    Has anyone else noticed how the Macbook's audio output to the headphone plug-in disengages if there's no audio? It wouldn't bug me except that there's always an irritating popping sound when audio comes on again. Why the heck did Apple do this? My PowerBook just left the line-out on all the time, which was fine. I can't imagine it's a huge power/resource drain. Can anyone confirm if this happens on the MBP?

    Really? Hmm... try having no audio going at all, no apps open or anything, and then do something you know will trigger a system alert sound. Make sure you have headphones on, of course. You should hear a distinct pop sound like when you plug speakers into a live output signal.

    Btw, is this a MB or MBP, and is it a Unibody?

    Yes, the MBPs turn audio on and off, but I can't say I notice a pop. I use a volume limity thingy I got from RadioShack to limit the output "hiss". Works good on my iPod Touch too.

    Sometimes it doesn't bug me when it's quiet, but depending on what the volume it's at, it can be very unpleasant when I've been listening to silence and then I do something that elicits a system alert I wasn't expecting. On top of that it delays the system alert beep just enough to make it pointless, as the static pop pretty much becomes the system alert sound. I'm glad I borrowed this MB from a friend before buying one. I'm definitely not getting one, or a MBP for that matter. There are a few key issues I simply can't work around. The display's colour accuracy is worse than my old PB and the high-gloss glass exacerbates the problem and is distracting as hell, the popping audio is a nuisance, and the USB ports being too close together to fit my USB key and another cable or key at the same time is retarded(what good are two of them if I can only use one at a fucking time?). For me, Apple has just made to many functionality concessions in favour of appealing design and aesthetics.

    My white macbook is about 3 years old and refuses to go to sleep when I close the lid. Its not a huge problem, but I'd love to know if there is an easy fix. Any ideas? Out of warranty.

    Looks like the OP has stopped posting here. I'm going to assume his questions have been answered and lock this thread before it becomes a megathread.
