Most helpful reviews

Confirmed purchaser I'm a computer veteran!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
As an experienced XP user, it's worth every penny changing to a MAC. Could do with the price being a little less, but I suppose you get what you pay for. Good size and weight. This is my first MAC and I highly recommend it!
Bad points:
Mouse pointer freezes temporarily with some graphics applications, mainly the 3D ones like Google Sketchup, but seems to be ok in 2D ones like Gimp. Other than that I have yet to find anything that could fault it.

Manufacturer's Description

More is more.
Music, photos, movies — not to mention your documents and other files — all start adding up. And add up they can, because the new MacBook offers larger hard drives across the line. With up to 2GB of memory standard, you can multi-task like never before.

Better than ever.
Inside the new MacBook is the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor based on 45nm-process technology and advanced Core microarchitecture. This powerful technology lets Intel create hundreds of millions of microscopic 45-nanometer transistors. And the advancements keep advancing with 3MB of shared L2 cache and a newly enhanced SSE4 vector engine. Translation: you get a MacBook with snappier performance that runs applications faster and more efficiently than ever before.

The new MacBook runs applications up to 58% faster than the previous generation.

Making connections.
Sometimes your work needs room. So extend your MacBook desktop by connecting a 20- or 23-inch Apple Cinema Display. But why stop the add-ons there? Your MacBook also includes two USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire 400 port, Gigabit Ethernet, audio input and headphone jacks, and a convenient lock slot.
Optical Drive.

When you want to burn a party mix CD or a Hollywood-caliber iMovie creation, do so on a 24x Combo drive or an 8x double-layer SuperDrive.

Power play.
The MagSafe Power Adapter is just that: a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So tripping over a power cord won’t send your shiny new MacBook flying off a table or desk. The cord simply breaks cleanly away, without damage to either the cord or the system.

Two-finger scroll.
With two-finger scrolling, the trackpad becomes a fast track to wherever you want to go. And if you come from a right-click world, it’s easy to make the MacBook fit in your comfort zone. There are shortcuts for right-click functionality, forward delete, and more.

Magnetic attraction.
Opening and closing your MacBook is a pleasure, thanks to a magnetic latch that catches without a catch. And because it’s a magnet, there are no moving parts to snag, jam, or break.

Lights, MacBook, action.
Cleverly integrated above your MacBook display is an iSight camera. You can be there without being there using iChat. Video chat with a buddy, share a photo slideshow with Mom, or run through a presentation with a colleague. Since you’re close-up ready, use iSight with Photo Booth for fun photo effects. Or star in your own indie flick with iMovie. Like everything Mac, your iSight just works. No need to waste valuable primping time installing software or configuring the camera. Just smile.
