Manufacturer's Description

Apple Macbook 13-inch - a display of brilliance

Whether you're a Mac virgin or die-hard devotee, once you try a new Macbook you will never look back. Apple is already world-famous for bringing you the best possible computer experience. They make the software as well as the hardware, so you can take it for granted that everything will work perfectly, straight out of the box. With the new Macbook White, you can also throw in a glossy, LED-backlit display for glorious full-screen brightness. The NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor handles intensive applications and stunning visuals with ease, and a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor lets you breeze through everyday tasks, whether it's browsing, video chatting, or organising your media library. Combined with a 10-hour battery life and a host of Apple's trademark features, the Macbook is a powerful alliance of performance, mobility and style.

The Multi-Touch trackpad
The Macbook's spacious and smooth Multi-Touch trackpad redefines laptop navigation.

Multi-Touch comes to MacBook

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.

All-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. Based on an advanced architecture, NVIDIA graphics deliver smooth, responsive gameplay, so you can immerse yourself in game worlds that come to life with rich colour, fine detail and fluid motion--all without sacrificing battery life.

Productivity powerhouse

With a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, MacBook breezes through 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.

The longest-lasting MacBook battery ever

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 seven hours on a single charge, 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.

Your 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.

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.

Supercharge your 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.

The MacBook gives you easy, plug-and-play support for your digital devices

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

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. 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 Tunes, 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.

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.

This is the new 2010 macbook edition, I decided to get this after using a 17 inch HP monster laptop for nearly 3 years, the HP is a hog it was massively heavy for a laptop weighing roughly 5 kg and had about 2 hours of battery life with the screen brightness low, so going into the final year of uni I deemed it was time for an upgrade something that could be used much more practically than the hulk HP.
This is the first time I have owned an apple computer, having always had windows in the past but after my friend convinced me that Macbooks were the way to go, I decided to take his advice and I am very happy to say that the macbook is brilliant.
I was worried about using the OS X would take a lot of getting used to but after a few hours it became second nature and very intuitive, it is great, it is lightning fast for everything I use it for, which is mainly word processing, web- browsing and a bit of gaming when sitting on the train etc. Another great thing about the macs is that itunes runs far far faster, the macbook can open and update itunes faster than my quad-core pc. There are plenty of great things that tie in for the mac e.g. finding specific applications that do certain things are much easier to find, for example lyrics in itunes is simple with the mac,just download a app off the apple website but finding something that autonomously does the same for windows is next to impossible.
The processor in it is a core2duo clocked at 2.4 Ghz so its fast enough for all the normal activities, the RAM at purchase is 2GB of DDR3, with the option of upgrading to 4GB if desired.

Thought what the hell and purchased one to replace a clapped out 3 year old Dell laptop used mainly for surfing the net in front of the telly. It worked straight out of the box, located our wireless network and was up and running in less than 10 minutes. I have been using PCs for over 20 years and was therefore nervous about converting to an entirely new platform but the whole Mac "experience" has been almost entirely painless. I say almost because I struggled transferring my I-Tunes library, however after an online tutorial even managed to sort this out without too much hassle. The pre-loaded software is more lifstyle orientated than the standard offer from Microsoft, with I-Tunes, Garageband, I-movie etc already installed but everything is superbly designed and very straightforward to use - it really does feel as if a holistic approach has been taken to the design and functionality of every component (which is refreshing after 20 years of crashes and compatibility issues). The most impressive thing for me is the speed of switching it on, logging on and getting on line, which takes seconds as opposed to minutes on our old laptop. Also the wireless connection seems to be rock-steady which is a major plus as the wireless connection to our previous laptop would drop out continually. Highly recommended (even though the Apple Store is second only to Vegas). Now looking forward to replacing our desktop PC with an Imac...

After having toyed with the idea of having a macbook for a while (and trying to justify the price in my head!) I decided to go for it. I'd looked at loads of other laptops to buy but in the end i bit the bullet and got what i really wanted. So so pleased I did. This is like no other computer i have used before...it just WORKS and it works well. The time from turning on the power to being on the internet is less than a minute, it's very very fast despite having many gigs worth of video, photos and music and the software included is easy to use. All in all the whole computer is just a joy to use and going back onto Windows laptops is nowhere near as fun.
The only thing i would say is having been a windows user for a good decade and being used to how it works, the way a mac works is quite different. It took me about 2 weeks of playing around and looking at plenty of video tutorials to really get to grips with my mac but now i know what to do it just comes as second nature.
If you are in two minds as to what to do, just go for it...you wont regret it!

It is difficult to find keen prices for Apple products, but Amazon is one retailer that continues to offer end of line models that reduce significantly in price. After several months of dithering over buying another Mac (I have an older desktop iMac) I finally caved in when the price of the Macbook seemed right. The iMac is my home library for everything that I value, and the Macbook enables me to roam the house and continue the Mac experience. I have a Dell 13 inch laptop,(which drove me mad with Vista) which I upgraded to Windows 7. It's better than Vista for me, but it seems to take an age to start up or shut down everything. If you want a complete computer experience (I am still very much a relative novice) you need to have a foot in both camps. Macs will be user friendly and fast,but there are still things that Pc's will do that Macs won't. I just keep finding myself drawn back by default to the Mac.
I knew what I was buying when I bought the Macbook, but the service from Amazon was very fast; only a couple of days on Super Saver delivery.
I can highly recommend this product, although if you are already a Mac user I'm preaching to the converted (mostly!).
