Advantages: Fast, stylish and long-lasting battery life
Disadvantages: American keyboard
When I purchased my brand new macbook, I had little experience of laptops and what made them good/bad. I decided on the macbook purely because it was white and looked nice! It stood out from the many other laptops in the shop. Little did I know, this laptop is brilliant!!
Having owned my macbook for a couple of years now, I love it and could not be with out it. The saying 'once you've had mac, there's no going back' is true. The speed of the macbook is worlds apart from any other laptop I have worked on. When you press the 'on' button, it is on, almost instantly. You can swing between numerous browsers you have open at one time without even needing to click! It is smooth and effortless.
The computer comes with many fun and useful programmes, such as, 'photobooth' which can provide hours of entertainment, with the use of the integrated, subtle, webcam, Itunes is pre-installed and iphoto.
The desktop is stylishly designed with brilliant clarity of the screen and vibrant colours. The icons are cool and create a beautiful wave motion as you roll the mouse across it - its almost addictive.
Even after plenty of use over the past 2 years, my macbooks battery life is long-lasting. I can do a full days work without any worries. And there is a useful toolbar at the top of screen that informs you of exactly how much time you have left in charge, for if you were to worry.
One very minor issue I did find with my macbook initially, was the keyboard is American, therefore the @ symbol is located differently. This took a little bit of getting used to.
Another rare benefit of owning any apple computer, is that if you were to have any problems with it (of no fault of your own) they will be fixed and re-booted, free of charge at most apple stores. This could save you a fortune in the long run!
Summary: Highly recommended.
