Backlit keyboard, 1" thick, MagSafe power connector (don't ask how many power adapters my girlfriend has gone through), slot-load DVD+-RW.
And how do you figure it's that much more expensive? An Acer 8204, very similar in specs is $2300. And it still doesn't have a backlit keyboard. Honestly, that's worth $200 to me.
a macbook with 8204 specs is 2900.00 thats expensive
backlit keys? pfft i prefer lighted rooms. pale skin = bad
