Our friends at Laptop compiled a chart comparing the new $999 white unibody MacBook to similarly weighted 13" laptops from Dell, Acer and Samsung within $100. There are tradeoffs, but at least at this price level, Apple fights on even ground, and makes up for lacks (no SD slot, smaller HDD, less RAM) with perks (LED backlighting, multitouch trackpad) and a much longer stated battery life. Feel free to scream it out below, or check Laptop for the full chart and spec rundown. [Laptop]
