I own a 14" ibook that has the silver, smooth finish with the metal hinge. I was just at the apple store and saw a 900 for the first time, and noticed it has the rougher, white finish with the plastic hinge. Anybody know why they changed this? Was it simply a cost issue or have there been any reports about he silver finish wearing on the 800s?
Thanks

apparently some ibooks with the lucite case painted from the inside have a problem with discolouring, plus the new enclosure is probably less expensive.

less fancy design doesn't mean cheaper. besides, the white looks makes the iBooks look purer and conistent with the iMac's solid white finish. and it helps with the discoloration too.
