An LED-backlit display of brilliance. A 13.3-inch glossy widescreen. The moment you open your new MacBook, its glossy LED-backlit display greets you with glorious, full-screen brightness and brings your photos, movies and presentations alive with luminous colour. The widescreen resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels gives you plenty of room to multitask, yet it’s compact enough to take anywhere. And the display is greener than ever: power efficient, free of harmful toxins such as mercury, and made of arsenic-free glass. The longest-lasting MacBook battery ever. Up to 7 hours per charge, up to 1000 recharges. Now take MacBook with you everywhere without worrying about plugging in or even carrying your power adapter. Its built-in lithium-polymer battery lasts up to 7 hours on a single charge,1 which makes it perfect for long flights, all-day workshops and marathon study sessions. Thanks to its advanced battery chemistry and charging technology, the MacBook battery can be recharged up to 1000 times — good for about five years of typical usage — and lasts nearly three times the lifespan of typical notebook batteries.2 That makes for less waste. And that, in turn, makes for one environmentally friendly battery. Multi-Touch comes to MacBook. More room to navigate, more ways to interact. The first thing you might notice — or not notice — about the new MacBook Multi-Touch trackpad is the button. The entire trackpad is the button, so you can click anywhere on the touch-friendly glass surface. Not having a separate button also makes for a larger trackpad surface, giving your fingers more room to move, click and gesture. And because the trackpad supports Multi-Touch gestures, you can use one or more fingers to interact with your documents, images and applications with gestures such as two-finger scroll, pinch, swipe and rotate. If you come from a right-click world, you can configure a right-click area on the trackpad or simply press with two fingers. Using the Multi-Touch Trackpad Perform gestures on a spacious and smooth Multi-Touch trackpad that’s also the button. See it in action One-finger click The entire trackpad is the button, so you have lots of space to click. Right-click Perform right-click functions by clicking a corner of your trackpad or by pressing two fingers anywhere. Scroll Use two fingers to scroll up and down or across a page — perfect for long documents and large images. Pinch Pinch to zoom in and out of photos, increase font sizes in web pages, and more. Swipe Swipe with three fingers to move forward and back in your web browser or move through your photos. Rotate Rotate with two fingers to quickly reorient a photo or PDF. High performance comes standard.Action hero. With MacBook, you get an amazing consumer-level graphics experience that’s great for popular 3D games like Spore, Call of Duty and Sims 3.

Productivity expert. With a fast 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, MacBook breezes through everyday tasks such as emailing, web browsing and working with documents, spreadsheets and presentations in iWork or Microsoft Office for Mac (sold separately). It also provides plenty of horsepower for more processor-intensive activities such as retouching a photo in iPhoto, editing an iMovie project and composing a new song using GarageBand, so you can make the most of the included iLife suite of applications. It even runs Microsoft Windows at native speeds. Better still, MacBook comes standard with 2GB of memory (with support for up to 4GB), so you can run multiple applications smoothly and efficiently. Personal librarian. Music, photos and movies — not to mention your documents and other files — start adding up. That’s why MacBook offers plenty of storage space. It includes a large 250GB hard drive with options up to a voluminous 500GB, so you can take it all with you.4 MagSafe and more. Much more. Even the power cord is an innovation. The MagSafe Power Adapter has a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So if someone happens to trip over the power cord while you’re working, they won’t send your new MacBook flying off a table or desk. Instead, the cord breaks cleanly away, without damage to either the cord or the system. As a bonus, you can tell if your MacBook is fully charged when the LED on the connector changes from amber to green. Wireless that works. Connect to the Internet at fast speeds anywhere thanks to the built-in AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi.5 Like everything else about a Mac, joining Wi-Fi networks couldn’t be simpler. If you’ve previously connected to a network, your Mac automatically logs you in so you can immediately email, surf the web or video chat.6 Have a Bluetooth-enabled phone, headset, keyboard or mouse? They can all connect to your MacBook courtesy of built-in Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR — and it remembers all your devices, too. Burn CDs and DVDs. MacBook comes standard with a built-in SuperDrive. What makes it super? You can enjoy your favourite DVD movies and music CDs. You can burn your own CDs or DVDs to back up data or create your own music mixes. Or you can use the included iDVD software to burn Hollywood-style iMovie creations then watch them on a DVD player. Ports with possibilities. With MacBook, you get easy plug-and-play support for your digital devices including your digital camera, printer, external hard drive, mouse and keyboard — not to mention your iPhone and iPod. Just connect them to one of the handy ports. Want to expand your workspace? Use the new Mini DisplayPort to connect an Apple LED Cinema Display to extend your MacBook desktop. Or connect a projector to show your work on the big screen. MacBook also includes a Gigabit Ethernet port, a headphone jack that doubles as an audio-in port and a convenient lock slot so you can keep your MacBook secure. Video chat with anyone. Built-in iSight camera. Cleverly integrated — almost hidden — at the top of the MacBook display is an iSight camera that takes photos and shoots video. Use it with the built-in microphone and the included iChat software, so you can be anywhere without actually being there. Video chat with up to three of your friends, share a video with your mum, or give a presentation to a client.5 Use your iSight with Photo Booth to take quick pictures and add fun photo effects. Or use it with QuickTime X to record a video and share it to iTunes, MobileMe or YouTube with just a click. Best of all, there’s no need to waste valuable primping time installing software or configuring the camera. Like everything Mac, iSight just works, right out of the box.
