From the curve of the unibody enclosure to the glass of the Multi-Touch trackpad, every aspect of the MacBook has been carefully considered and then considered again.
Durable unibody enclosure.
A mere 2.74 cm (1.08 inches) thin and even lighter at 2.13 kg (4.7 pounds),1 the sleek MacBook cuts a slim profile on any desk (or in any rucksack or briefcase). It features a seamless, durable unibody enclosure with rounded contours that make it easy to pick up and slide into and out of your bag. It’s made of rugged polycarbonate that withstands the rough and tumble of everyday life at school, at work or while travelling. And since the bottom of the MacBook is covered in a non-slip material, it always stays right where you put it — whether it’s on a desk, table or folding seat tray.
The breakthrough unibody design of the MacBook is durable and streamlined.
Quality screen time.
MacBook features an LED-backlit 13.3-inch glossy widescreen display for a spectacular viewing experience. Documents, videos, photos and games look incredibly sharp and detailed. The LED backlighting delivers stunning colours and instant full-screen brightness the moment you open the lid. And its 1280-by-800 pixel resolution offers an outstanding balance of luminous colour and easy readability in a perfectly portable size.
Spacious glass Multi-Touch trackpad.
The MacBook Multi-Touch trackpad has no button because it is the button. That means there’s plenty of room to move your fingers around, and you can click anywhere — left, right, centre and everywhere in between. The trackpad features a silky smooth glass surface that feels great to the fingertips. Use it to perform familiar functions such as right-clicking, as well as Multi-Touch gestures: pinch to increase font size in a document, rotate your fingers to reorient photos, swipe to navigate through web pages, and more. And now with inertial scrolling, moving up and down documents and web pages feels completely smooth.
A comfortable keyboard your fingers will love.
MacBook portability doesn’t happen at the expense of key features. The keyboard is full size, with keys that are curved to contain your fingers and highly responsive to your touch. Its low-profile design integrates perfectly into the unibody enclosure, so you’ll get a comfortable experience whether you’re typing a quick email or writing a lengthy research report. The keyboard also gives you one-touch access to music and video controls and Mac OS X features such as Dashboard and Exposé.
Because the latch has no moving parts to snag, jam or break, even opening and closing your MacBook is a pleasure.
Easy access to connections and ports.
The connections and ports on MacBook — MagSafe power, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini DisplayPort, USB and audio in/out — are all smartly integrated on the same side of the notebook. So your cables stay neatly organized, and connecting and disconnecting your devices is easy and convenient.
MagSafe Power Adapter
The power cord is held in place magnetically, so if someone should trip over it, the cord disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook safely stays put.
Clean, simple interior design.
MacBook is as well designed on the inside as on the outside. Turn it over and you’ll notice a seamless, sturdy, single-piece bottom case with no battery compartment. That’s because the lithium-polymer battery is strategically built right into the enclosure. In addition to providing extra overall durability, this integrated design eliminates the space-consuming parts required by a removable battery. This allows more room for a larger-capacity battery and provides an even longer battery life of up to 10 hours on a single charge2 — all in an enclosure that is thin and light. When you remove the bottom case, you’ll discover a clean, simple interior
layout that makes it easy to add more memory or a larger hard drive.
8Friendly to the environment.*
MacBook is designed to have less impact on the environment than most other computers. It’s more energy efficient, free of many toxins and made of recyclable materials.
