Bye Bye Plastic MacBook

Yesterday, Apple said goodbye to one of their own, the white and black MacBook.

If you went on the Apple Store site yesterday you would’ve noticed something different on the MacBook page.  The basic MacBook is gone and the new MacBook Air has replaced it.

So now if you want an Apple laptop, you’ll have to buy the MacBook Air starting at $999 or the MacBook Pro starting at $1199.

I’ll admit, I don’t understand all the specs on computers, but isn’t the hard drive on a MacBook Air smaller than most computers?  I understand the portability of the MacBook Air but if it can’t hold all my stuff, why would I spend a thousand bucks on it?

I was going to get either the white or black MacBook before school starts in August but now that my only choices are the Air and Pro, I’m not sure what I’m going to do.  I’d love to get the MacBook Pro but I’m a poor college student here!

What do you guys think about Apple getting rid of the regular MacBook?
