Apple's little white wonder of a MacBook excels against its PC counterparts, but it's no Gandalf. As expected, gaming is this laptop's weakest link. And even complex multimedia tasks can cause the MacBook's magic to wither. Still, in most...

Speedy processor ; spacious keyboard, large touchpad ; great battery life

Only 1GB RAM ; glossy screen unreadable in sunlight ; lousy for gaming and multimedia editing

Since Apple products are often touted for their multimedia capabilities, the MacBook’s limited connection options are a disappointment. Two USB ports and a single FireWire port butt up against a mini-DVI output for external monitor connectivity—adapter...

Expert review by: Dan Ackerman (cnet.com)

Apple MacBook (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz review:

 

Editors' note: As of June 2009, the product reviewed here has been replaced by these updated models .

New aluminum construction looks good, feels solid; giant touch pad; attractive edge-to-edge glass on display; improved integrated graphics; backlit keyboard on some models; thinner than previous version.

Still no ExpressCard or SD-card slot; loses FireWire port; all-clicking touch pad is a bit awkward, at least initially; $1,299 now gets you a slower CPU than it did before; no matte-screen option.

Apple's redesigned 13-inch MacBook is essentially a shrunken version of the more expensive 15-inch Pro line. With its new aluminum body, new trackpad, and Nvidia graphics, it's an even more attractive choice for mainstream laptop buyers than was the...

MacBook

 

The new MacBook has a lot of MacBook Pro features but with Regular Joe pricing (well, Regular Joseph III Esquire, anyway). At the same time, however, Apple has dumped a few key components that even "non-Pro" people might miss.

Apple's new MacBook integrates a number of impressive features from the MacBook Pro line while maintaining a lower cost and valuable features aimed at regular users (as well as those new to the Mac ecosystem).

Apple MacBook White

 

The MacBook White is the least expensive notebook in Apple's portable range and this fits with its positioning as an enticing proposition for students

Although the White is the least expensive MacBook in Apple's arsenal you shouldn't underestimate it.

Product Specifications

Instead of assembling a notebook from many minor parts, the MacBook was reinvented from just one: the solid-aluminum unibody enclosure. It gets full credit for making MacBook thinner, lighter, and even more stunning. But it's not all beauty. Because of the unibody, this MacBook is also durable. It was designed to take on your world. So slip it into your backpack or briefcase and pull it out wherever you go - it's impressive in any setting. The MacBook uses a graphics processor that economizes space in a whole new way. A traditional computer logic board contains multiple components: the CPU, two chips that control communication throughout the computer, and the graphics processor. The logic board in the MacBook contains only two components: The CPU and a graphics processor with all of the core logic built into a single chip. The beautifully seamless, remarkably thin design isn't the only gleaming quality of the LED-backlit display. Open your MacBook and you're instantly greeted by glorious full screen brightness. The aluminum enclosure is perfectly integrated with a glass overlay that stretches to the edge of the notebook, providing a completely unobstructed picture. Anything you view, including the glossy widescreen display itself, is a spectacular experience. The LED-backlit display is more power efficient. And it's mercury- and arsenic-free, so it's greener than ever.
