Apple MacBook MA472B/A ... polycarbonate, just 1.08 inches thin - MacBook combines performance and portability like never before.
Built upon the revolutionary Intel Core Duo - with two processor cores on a single chip - MacBook leaves other consumer notebooks in the dust. It performs up to five times faster than the previous generation iBook without compromising on size or style.
At 1280 by 800, the 13.3-inch glossy widescreen display delivers 30% more viewing area than the iBook or 12-inch PowerBook - perfect for movies and more. And the ultra bright LCD makes photos and graphics come alive with color. You can also connect your MacBook via the mini-DVI port to an external display and create twice the workspace.
With the built-in iSight camera, it's easier than ever to video chat with friends and family. Just fire up iChat AV and start chatting. Pick up the included Apple Remote, find a comfortable chair and treat yourself - or a crowd - to a show. The Front Row interface lets you summon forth your music, movies and photos from across the room.
Your MacBook includes Mac OS X Tiger and the iLife '06 suite of applications, making it perfectly tuned to serve as the center of your digital life. Create photo albums, watch or make a movie, manage your email, and much more - right out of the box.
Measuring just 1.08 inches thin, your MacBook still offers a full complement of ports and connections, including mini-DVI video, fast Gigabit Ethernet, and optical digital/analog audio. Plus you get the innovative MagSafe Power Adapter, a power cord that's held in place magnetically, so if someone should trip over it, the cable disconnects harmlessly and your MacBook stays put.

If you're one of the many people who are becoming increasingly frustrated with Windows-based PC's, or are on the hunt for a new laptop, then Apple's Macbook could well be just be just what you are looking for. At £699, the Macbook is by no means a budget laptop, but it may be reassuring to know that you are getting a well built, well designed and well thought out computer. For those who have never owned an Apple PC, you may be surprised to know that the hardware inside an Apple is practically identical to that inside a standard Windows-based PC. In fact, all Mac's (iMac's, Macbooks, Macbook Pro's and the new Macbook Air) all ship with an ... Read the complete review

First off, I have to say that it is definitly the best laptops that I have ever owned. I have had my Macbook for 3 months now. The size of the Macbook is not too small and not too large. The screen is just perfect. When one looks at the keyboard of a normal laptop, one often has the problem with food and other nasty things getting under the keys. Strangly enough this doesnt even happen to the macbook, because the keyboard is slanted. Learning how to use the Mac operating system is not only easy but fun. It took me only a couple of hours to learn how to use it. One will find that the idea of having a dock to keep all of your programms in is a lot more effiecent than the . Read the complete review

Apple have been selling this laptop for quite a while now. There are many things that have set it apart from other laptops. From its unique and stylish looks to its completely different operating system. The macbook has been avery popular laptop, and over half a million have been purchased so far, this is a phenomenal figure for laptops. But does it really deserve all these buyers and some of the great reviews that it has been receiving? First of all, it looks fantastic. I love the white or black finish on it, it is a truly unique laptop. There is a distinctive apple logo on the back of the laptop, this looks great and kind of shows off the fact that you own ...

I have owned one of these little laptops for about 2 years now and I can honestly say I'm a mac convert. Quick to load, not problems to-date with viruses or spyware and a surprisingly good range of software makes this laptop a real winner. I have to admit that I use the bootcamp option with the Leopard operating system (which was a upgrade from Tiger), so that I can run windows which I need for work. However, this all works well and I use Leopard for all home PC tasks such as storing music, editing photos, updating my website etc. The bundled software is excellent. Not a great fan of Apple's iwork programs but Microsoft Office 2008 for ... Read the complete review

I've had this computer for almost 2 years now, it has been absolutely top class. Like every Apple product it is extremely well designed, it is frankly a beautiful thing to look at. It isn't flimsy either only accumulating a few scratches after several drops and such like. The only problem with the matte black design is that it accumulates fingerprints and dust very quickly, with is not such a problem with the newer aluminum or white versions of the macbook. I'm not going to go through the various statistics and specs of the computer as they are conveniently located above, but I will go into a few key features. It has all your key features, usb ...
