It looks really cool in black. But kind of tacky in Yellow.

Black and gold are my alma mater's colors. Go for the yellow.

Plus, I figure you you would like the attention it would garner.

I have good eyesight and I won't really use it to read text as I have my desktop to check my emails and do internet stuff. I am just going to use this for my time at college and I can touch type small problem may be the keyboard layout is very sligty different to my current laptop which will probably **** me off

Well I'm just pointing out, I've never seen anything like that before. I could imagine that text would be small on a 20 inch at that res.
