The new Intel-based MacBook is now here - there are two on the floor at the SF Apple store. I'm typing this on the black one...which are currently in short supply. Judging by the horde of people who were here waiting to pick one up, virtually all the interest is in the black one...and for good reason. The matte black is gorgeous.
When people arrived early this morning, they originally said there were no black ones to be had, but then they announced that there are "a very small number" of black MacBooks here in the SF store...but plenty of white ones. I picked up a black one for Jacquie (I've been waiting for these to come out for months to replace her very slow first generation G4 iMac); I imagine that by the time I click "publish" all the black ones in the SF store will have been spoken for.
