why no macbook for me yet!

Not all Macs meet Vista requirements:
Hmm. Seems the MacBook and Mac mini fail to meet the video RAM requirements. Not to mention that you're going to need at least a 60GB hard drive. Also note, as Julio points out, that the mini and MacBook share system and video memory, so Vista may be a drag on those machines. So, if you plan on running a dual-boot machine once Vista is released, you may want to look towards a MacBook Pro or iMac.

Even though Dave Winers review of the Macbook he bought made me want to buy one, I think I'll wait. There are reasons above. And then when Apple releases Leopard, I don't want to have to shell out extra cash. The Powerbook G4 I have right now has a dedicated 64 MB Video graphics card, which is far better than what the macbooks have. Why buy something that downgrades you. And I don't want to pay an arm and a leg for a macbook pro!
