Apple MacBook (white, Core 2 Duo 2.2 GHz, Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard)

 

Introduced in the fall of 2006, the current version of Apple's 13-inch MacBook laptop was a revolutionary product, combining Intel's Core 2 Duo CPUs with Apple's much-lauded operating system. Add in Apple extras such as the iSight camera, Front Row...

Upgraded CPU for the same price; same great design; Leopard operating system.

Still no Express card or SD card slots; only more expensive models are available in black.

Apple has been content to issue minor periodic hardware updates to the 13-inch MacBook, but the modest performance gains and new Leopard OS keep it in our top tier of laptop recommendations.

"Once you go Mac you'll never go back"

 

Will never buy a PC again, the value for the dollar spent is far more worth it than that of a PC.

Very fast, never get "program not responding", shuts down in 7 seconds, turns on in 50, iLife '08 is amazing software that sells itself. Compatibility rarely an issue anymore.

SD slot would be nice, other than that no more cons

"Fantastic notebook"

 

I bought the mid-range model to get the superdrive, and added 4GB of RAM for a little over $100. RAM and hard drive upgrades are easy with this unit. Parallels allows me to run the Windows-only apps that kept me using a Dell Inspiron instead of being...

fast, long battery life, smooth case, OS X Leopard

I'd like a higher res, LED backlit display

I love this thing. I bought this laptop with a 250gb hard drive and 2gb ram after being a pc user forever. This laptop is unbelievable. It is faster than 90% of people's desktops. I'll tell you mac's leopard is incredibly fast and so easy. After...

Blazing fast, burns my old desktop; not even close. The ease of use is unbelievable

"So far so good..."

 

I just received it today 11/9. I couldn't wait any longer. I finally gave into getting a mac after using windows exclusively. After waiting for leopard to release and then hearing rumors of macbook upgrades, I was getting antsy. It was finally...

The looks. Leopard. Speed.

The heat. White keys and white trackpad, it's only been a couple hours and my fingerprint are noticeable, and yes my hands are clean.

Build quality is awful go for a pro

 

I have owned a macbook for 9 months. I bought mine for grad school 2 weeks after this model was released. The first 2 or 3 months were fine but since then I have experienced the following problems which in my opinion are fairly major.
