Apple MacBook 2.0GHz

 

Apple did amazingly well with its laptop sales last year, and much of that success was down to this little beauty. The MacBook is Apple's excellent consumer laptop and it's just seen its first upgrade.

Bright and Glossy Display, 1GB RAM as Standard, Intel Core 2 Duo Architecture, Apple Remote, Mac OS X, iLife '06

Still Has an Insensitive Trackpad Button

Good, certainly. But if you already own a Core Duo MacBook, there's little reason to upgrade

With the MacBook, Apple has corrected a handful of the iBook's shortcomings, hit a reasonable price point, and delivered a laptop that makes a great compromise between size and portability.

Thin and light ; Robust software package, including Mac OS X Tiger ; Magnetic lid latch and scrollable touch pad ; DVD burner ; Built-in Webcam ; Remote control ; Can run Windows XP using Apple's free Boot Camp utility

Non-native software runs slowly on Mac OS ; Lacks media card reader and some other ports ; Higher-end configurations are much more expensive than similarly configured Windows laptops ; Only 90 days of toll-free tech support

Apple PowerBook G4 (1.5GHz, 12-inch) OS X 10.4.2; PowerPC G4 1.5GHz; 512MB PC2700 333MHz DDR SDRAM; Nvidia GeForce FX 5200 64MB; Hitachi Travelstar 5K100 80GB 5,400rpm

Apple MacBook (2.0GHz, 13-inch, black)

 

Best machine ever, and rock solid. I travel all over the world for work, and the machine never misses a beat.

Stable OS ; Never get any errors ; Runs smoothly and quickly with multiple programs at the same time ; Super easy to use, even for complicated functions ; Good webcam

Black machine $300 extra for only a slightly larger hard drive

Apple MacBook (2.0GHz, 13-inch, black)

 

Fast and powerful machine, I run final cut pro on my black macbook and edited an entire episode of an hour long television show on this machine. 28hrs of non stop work and it never shut down once.

Very powerful machine able to run multiple video and audio based programs at the same time. small and easy to carry ; Built in wireless internet is flawless

Upgrading to the 2GB is very necessary to see what this machine can really do ; Software updates always lags behing the release of the new machines, causing user frustration
