    Mac Forums: Apple Notebooks

    This forum bills itself as the "Ultimate Source For Your Mac!", and while I might not jump right on that bandwagon, I do agree that it is a fabulous resource for everything Mac. This includes their Apple Notebooks forum which contains lots of information on the current line of MacBook's as well as rumors about the next line of MacBook's. The users here tend to get a bit rowdy at times and the occasional "flame war" tends to break out but what can I say? These guys love their MacBook's.

    MacBook Wiki

    The final MacBook link I have for you is the MacBook Wikipedia page. While I don't recommend taking everything posted on this (or any) Wikipedia page as gospel, this Wikipedia entry has some very useful information that is referenced properly. Just about everything MacBook related is covered here and this is a great place to get a general sense of the quality of the MacBook notebook. Be sure to check the references section for any information you are taking to heart.
