Beautifully engineered, inside and out.
From the stunning aluminium unibody to the powerful graphics architecture, the new MacBook makes progress a beautiful thing.
Square one: a solid block of aluminium
Instead of assembling a notebook from many minor parts, the new MacBook was reinvented from just one: the new, solid-aluminium unibody enclosure. It gets full credit for making MacBook thinner, lighter and even more stunning. But its not all beauty. Because of the unibody, this MacBook is more durable than ever. It was designed to take on your world. So slip it into your backpack or briefcase and pull it out wherever you go its impressive in any setting.
Even the keyboard is advanced.
The MacBook keyboard is solid, responsive and comfortable. Just put your fingers on the crisp keys and youll feel pure typing bliss. An illuminated keyboard, a popular feature of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air, now comes standard on the 2.4GHz MacBook model. So when youre in low-light settings such as airports or lecture halls, you can always see what youre typing. Its a luminous feature for anyone on the go.
Hey, wheres the button?
The amazing new trackpad doubles as a button just press down anywhere and consider it clicked. No separate button means theres 39 percent more room for your fingers to move on the silky glass surface. Now that Multi-Touch gestures have come to MacBook, all the function is in your fingers. Use two fingers to scroll up and down a page. Pinch to zoom in and out. Swipe with three fingers to flip through your photo libraries and rotate an image with your fingertips. Using the new four-finger swipe gesture, swipe up or down to access Expos modes and left or right to switch between open applications. If youre coming from a right-click world, you can even configure a right click area to access shortcut menus. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more youll wonder what you ever did without it.
All-new Multi-Touch trackpad
Multi-Touch comes to MacBook in a spacious, silky-smooth trackpad that is also the button.
The beautifully seamless, remarkably thin design isnt the only gleaming quality of the LED-backlit display. Open your MacBook and youre instantly greeted by glorious full screen brightness. The aluminium enclosure is perfectly integrated with the glass screen, so the sharp picture appears larger and more stunning than ever. Anything you view, including the glossy widescreen display itself, is a spectacular experience. The LED-backlit display is more power efficient, which translates into longer battery life. And its mercury- and arsenic-free, so its greener than ever.
Cooler creatures. Richer worlds.
The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M brings 5x faster, discrete-level graphics performance to MacBook.1 That means high-end, high-speed 3D game-playing power. Graphics-intensive applications such as iPhoto and iMovie are smoother, clearer and faster than ever. With powerful NVIDIA graphics, youll enjoy movies and video with richer colours and finer details. Even when you flip through Cover Flow or use the Dashboard, you can see the difference NVIDIA performance makes.
The NVDIA GeForce 9400M delivers up to 5x faster graphics performance.
