You want that in black? That will be $150.

"How much more black could it be? The answer is none. None more black."

The new consumer-grade Apple notebook computer, the MacBook, is available in black or white. However, as far as I can tell, the black one is $1499, and the white one is $1299. The only difference aside from the color is that the black one comes with a 20GB bigger hard disk. But you can upgrade the white one to the same hard drive for $50.

So being stylish will cost you $150. That's either very clever or very stupid. There's such a fine line between the two.
