Apple MacBook (2.4GHz, 2008)

 

The biggest news on Apple's latest MacBook update may also be the most obvious: it's not plastic anymore. Apple has canned the old (and iconic) white MacBook look in favor of a new unibody aluminum design that makes the MacBook and its larger brother,...

Rock-solid aluminum unibody; bright and vibrant display; multitouch trackpad; snappy software

Expensive; could be lighter; screen glare; poor connectivity

For style-conscious users who need a notebook that looks and feels as good as it performs, this is the total package.

Apple MacBook (2.26GHz)

 

With an LED-backlit display and a glass touch pad, the $999 MacBook feels a bit like its MacBook Pro big sibling, but weigh its trade-offs carefully.

Unibody enclosure; LED-backlit display; superior touch pad

Battery-charge lights are gone; hard to swap battery; no flash-card slot; no office software

The improvements to this MacBook are modest and come with trade-offs, but they go a long way to making Apple's budget notebook more durable and professional-looking. We don’t understand some of Apple’s logic (such as omitting the battery indicators of...

Apple MacBook 2.2GHz

 

Apple has updated its hot selling MacBook range. Externally, the new MacBooks are identical to the mid-2007 models, except for minor changes to the keyboard. It's under the surface, though, where the real changes have taken place.

Improved graphics card, Takes RAM up to 4GB, Santa Rosa chipset, Longer battery life, Competitive pricing

No antiglare screen option

A useful range of significant updates, particularly the changed graphics engine and arrival of Santa Rosa

Apple MacBook 2.13GHz (white) review

 

As the least expensive laptop in Apple's MacBook family, the white MacBook is popular in the education market and with consumers looking for a lower cost Mac experience.

If you're in the market for an affordable Mac laptop, the white MacBook is a better bargain than ever. With its impressive performance, battery life, the inclusion of FireWire, and more common mini-DVI connector, the only reason to pay more for the...

Apple MacBook 2.1/2.4GHz laptop review

 

Since it first replaced the iBook in 2006, the MacBook narrows the performance gap between Apple's consumer and professional laptop lines with each new update. Apple last updated the MacBooks in November 2007, bringing with it an improved hardware...

The new MacBooks represent some progress - PowerBook and even some first-generation MacBook users will definitely see substantial improvement over their current systems. If you just bought a MacBook a few months ago, however, you won't be kicking...

Apple MacBook 2.13GHz (white) review

 

If price plays a greater role in a shopper's buying decisions during tough economic times, Apple's recent updates to its entry-level laptop, the white, £749 MacBook, should help push some cost-conscious consumers over the laptop-buying fence.

If you're in the market for an affordable Mac laptop, the white MacBook is a better bargain than ever. With its impressive performance, battery life, the inclusion of FireWire, and more common mini-DVI connector, the only reason to pay more for the...
