Apple MacBook 13-inch


Most affordable Intel-Mac notebook. Lightweight. One-inch-thick chassis. Has most of the MacBook Pro features

No ExpressCard or PC Card slot. Runs warm like the MacBook Pros

The more affordable Mac-Intel notebook you've been waiting for is here. The MacBook 13-inch sports many of the features and power of its bigger siblings for a lot less money.

Work it out for yourself...the best is Apple.


By far the best laptop.

Why would you pay $60,000 for a Porsche?

I love this 13" macbook


For the Windows users: If you have not made the switch to a mac you need to watch more of apple's commercials. I hat when people ask me to do tech support for them on their Vista or Xp laptops that are slow of infected, full of viruses and spyware. ...

you need to get used to Leopard if you come from Windows
