Consumer review by: Alan B. (

Works for my purposes


Keep in mind that this system is a 32 bit computer, so will only work with up to Mac OS 10.6, 32 bit Windows, and 32 bit Linux distributions (IMO, the best choice for the system going forward).

Low cost, and easily replaced memory and hard drive.

Small crack in the upper case plastic by the track pad button, but that seems to be cosmetic only. Has a bit of a man's B.O. kind of smell, but I've noticed the smell with other white plastic case Macs, so I don't think that's a vendor related problem....

Pretty cool laptop, but takes A LOT of getting used to.


If you are considering purchasing your first Mac, then you should be aware that it takes a whole lot of getting used to. This computer is very very diffrerent from Windows and it can be very tricky to use. Specifically, MacBook screens are a rectangle ...

Very fast, great display, good-looking

Takes a while to get used to, no double-click, hard to highlight words

If this doesn't convert PC users, what will???


Yes, I'm a long time Mac lover. This is my 4th & 5th mac (yes, I loved it so much I bought a second so I didn't have to share with my kids). (And by the way, I still own 3 of those 5 macs, I only sold the other 2 because I felt guilty owning 5...

Light, drool worthy, easy to use, packed w/great programs, still love it after a yr

White shows dirt, but cleans up easy. PC users who bash Macs.

Good with Mac OSX, Windows XP only marginal


Mac has a lot of good products on the market, and this base model MacBook is one of them. I have owned mine since Oct. 06 and it has given me fine performance for its price. I payed the extra 160 bucks for the optional Windows XP which shares half of...

Very compact, excellent battery, New software allows more seamlessness between Windows

DVD Rom drive not reliable, Windows doesn't run as good as Mac OSX (see description)

PC Convert Loves Mac!


This was our first Mac, our first laptop and our first stress-free computer experience. We learned about Mac after our fourth PC crashed....yet again. The Mac takes some getting used to, however it is very easy to adapt to and is more than worth the ...

Virus free, Magnetic power cord, Garage Band, iPhoto, iTunes, iDVD, can watch movies, comfortable keyboard.

Must purchase programs for document prep (ie. Pages or Microsoft Office for Mac $$$).

My first Mac - andI HATE it.


Sharp display.Good parental controls. GarageBand & PhotoBooth (included programs) are fun.

Horrible Office Performance. Runs VERY hot. Lack of 3rd party software.
