Possibly the 32-bit MacBook might have an Nvidia graphics card, which
generally seems to bring a crisper display than the Radeon options . . . .
Apple seems to "mix n match" the hardware in different platforms, so to
make it seem competitive with PC choices?

And, right, "the wish for a natural death" scenario, rather than "induced
death due to lack of support" . . . I've tried to keep my old PPC machines
going, unnaturally adding parts to revive them from zombie state . . . but,
the pull of the technological wave seems to keep sending them back . . .
and then the new parts don't have the right connectors . . . making it
difficult to sustain "life" . . . .

It's somewhat like "newer, fresher horsies" are the "better" choice in the
cost/benefit ratio of time management theory . . . ??
