Product Description

Color: MA701LL/A 2.0 GHz Black

From the Manufacturer

MacBook delivers the power of the Intel Core 2 Duo -- the latest generation of Intel processors -- and a slew of innovative features, including: a built-in iSight camera for video chatting on the go; iLife '06; Front Row; a glossy 13-inch widescreen display; even dual-display support.

Better bang-to-buck ratio
The most advanced and affordable Mac notebook ever gives you a blazingly fast mobile architecture in a beautiful design that costs less than slower, clunkier models. It's like getting a sports car for the price of a scooter. Talk about performance, MacBook's powered with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with speeds revving up to 2.0 GHz.

Front Row lets you navigate your movies, music, photos, and more at the touch of the included Apple Remote--no matter where you roam.

Pack more punch
In bright white or sleek black, MacBook supports up to 2 GB of memory and plenty of storage. Standard models offer up to 120 GB of hard drive space, but if you haul a lot of data around, you can order your MacBook with up to 200 GB of storage. That's not all. MacBook keeps you untethered courtesy of built-in Bluetooth and AirPort Extreme (802.11g). A 6x double-layer-burning SuperDrive -- standard equipment on the 2.0 GHz models -- not only lets you burn DVDs faster but lets you burn capacious double-layer media. And those 2.0 GHz models pack 4 MB of shared L2 cache, which helps deliver a 6x leap in performance over the iBook or PowerBook before them.(1)

Friends for iLife
Every MacBook comes with iLife '06 -- an amazing suite of applications that make it easy to live the digital life. Use iPhoto to share entire high-res photo albums with anyone who's got an e-mail address. Record your own songs and podcasts with GarageBand. Break into indie filmmaking with iMovie HD and iDVD. Then take all the stuff you made on your MacBook and share it on the web in one click with iWeb.(2) Just turn on your MacBook and you're halfway there.

All smiles
Look closely. See that little lens in the display bezel? That's the built-in iSight camera. Use it to video chat simply by opening iChat AV and clicking a buddy icon (or three). Or fire up Photo Booth and take a few snapshots with the iSight, play around with 16 fun effects, then admire your handiwork. That little camera lets you create web-ready videos, too. Just open up iMovie and start the action. From there, iWeb makes it one-click easy to get your talking head on the web.(2) Looks like fun.

Take it on tour
MacBook also features Front Row, so you can navigate your movies, music, photos, and more at the touch of the included Apple Remote -- no matter where you roam. Give an impromptu vacation photo slideshow in your favorite café. Screen your latest iMovie creation on the train. Watch a DVD in bed. MacBook and Front Row give you the best seat in the house (or out of it).

Positively brilliant
Thanks to a 13.3-inch glossy widescreen display, MacBook provides the perfect combination of pixels and portability. Photos feel crisper. Movies play vividly. Even daily tasks like surfing the web and checking e-mail take on a whole new sheen.

Hit the hot spots
The built-in wireless capability of MacBook puts the "world" back in "World Wide Web." If there's a wireless hot spot nearby, you can get online. No need to waste valuable surfing time configuring your computer. Just open it up. MacBook automatically detects wireless networks within range and asks nicely if you'd like to join any of them. That's it. Catch up on your blog, share this weekend's trip as a Photocast, or just chat with your friends. Anytime, anywhere.

What's in the box
MacBook; Apple Remote; 60W MagSafe Power Adapter, AC wall plug, and power cord; lithium-polymer battery; install/restore DVDs; printed and electronic documentation.

Product Description

With Intel Core 2 Duo processing power, you'll be amazed at what your MacBook can do--and at how fast it can do it. Its 13.3-inch glossy widescreen display lets you see your photos, movies, websites, and documents with incredible clarity. A built-in iSight camera gives you hassle-free video chatting,(1) while Front Row and the Apple Remote make it simple to navigate your digital media from across the room. At just 1.08 inches thin and barely over 5 pounds,(2) the versatile and portable MacBook puts a world of advanced features within your reach.
1 Video chatting requires broadband Internet connection; fees may apply.
2 Weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process.

Great battery time and runs as quiet as a mouse.
The matte black case gives it a very cool look and contrasts well with the glossy screen.

The laptop itself is very light, compact and manageable.

Color Name: MA701LL/A 2.0 GHz Black
I bought a build-to-order version of this machine from Apple educational with 2GB of RAM. If one uses the Macintouch link to purchase this from Amazon you get a better deal and help out a web site that provides great Mac tech support.

Thus far I've gone through user migration, several days of light use, and one test of Parallels (which was disappointing). It's definitely worth the money and its one of the best laptops I've bought (I do miss my 1990 vintage PowerBook 165 though!). I've been nursing my broken-hinges G3 iBook so I could get the 2nd rev of the MacBook, it was worth the wait. I don't see any evidence of the serious heat problems that afflicted the first MacBook and I assume they've mostly fixed the abrupt shutdown problem. The odd looking keyboard is fine and the large trackpad works well -- though I'm not sure the tap-to-click is worth the occasional errant clicks. The accompanying documentation is extremely minimal but very well done and sufficient for most users. Those who need more probably wouldn't read a bigger manual anyway.

You should be happy, especially since the rest of my review will prepare you for the minor annoyances.

Now that I'm done saying nice things, here are the nits. Firstly, it's too sharp. Some whacko at Apple design figured 'sharp' was in this year, and the edges of the case annoy wrists when typing and fingers when carrying by the base. This is not all bad; it ensures good wrist position because it's uncomfortable to type wresting your wrists on the front edge. Dumb.

The screen is the DVD-friendly widescreen form factor, so the 13.3" is less useable for computing work (photos, etc) than one would wish. Annoying, but hard to escape these days.

Color Name: MA699LL/A 1.83 GHz White
I got this for my brother, and it is a real pleasure to use. The processor is obviously first-rate, and the included software is absolutely a deal-sealer as far as I'm concerned. If you've never used iLife, you are in for a real treat. Of course, it's not all perfect.

My first complaint is the 60Gig HD. This really isn't enough for most people, especially when you can buy iTunes movies and such that just eat up disk space. I would DEFINITELY plan on buying a 100 or 120 Gig HD and use the included 60 Gig as a handly little external backup drive. The good is really, really easy to change out the HD yourself. Probably easier than on any other machine out there.

My second complaint is that 512 MB of RAM is NOT enough to run OS X efficiently. You should plan on buying another 512 chip because the performance gain you'll see will be tremendous. Again, the good news is that adding RAM yourself is very, very easy.

Summary: Although I think 60Gig and 512 MB RAM is way too little, what you get for the price is hard to beat and upgrading the machine yourself is as easy as it gets. DON'T forget to include the value of the software that is freely included and the great OS that is OS X.

Color Name: MA701LL/A 2.0 GHz Black
I haven't owned a Mac since I was 14, having been a PC guy for most of my teens and twenties. I actually used to hate Apple, for selling overpriced proprietary computers which valued style and image over versatility and function.

However, having recently borrowed a friends Macbook for a music performance, I found that the new Mac OS X was quite nice to use. I also bought an Ipod, and found that Itunes was a very powerful and intuitive program that just "made sense."

After seeing that the new Macbooks could run Windows, I thought it might be interesting to buy a Mac. While I did install XP on this computer which runs fine, I find myself never using it because I love the Mac OS so much! The new Macs have an elegant, aesthetically appealing, seemless integration of style and function which I have found quite a relief after dealing with XP/2000 BS for the past decade.

I plugged in a printer, and it worked! I set up a filesharing network in 2 minutes, not three hours with hair pulling, nauseating confusion, and set up windows! You need to look up a word, which you probably do several times a day? There's a really nice dictionary, right there! Need a really nice address book and calendar? Right there, built in! Need a good way to edit photos and interface with your camera? Iphoto is a simple, powerful, awesome program! Want to watch a DVD? Just put one in, and it works! You don't have to deal with codecs, and drivers, and filling out forms, and all that awful nonsense.

In general it is compact, fast, with a nice keyboard, and a nice looking screen. I'm very happy.

Oh, and in response to other reviewers:

- The sharp edge never bothers me
- I had no problem getting rebate
- The fan does NOT run 100% of the time, or even 15%
- All laptops this small get hot after a certain amount of time

Color Name: MA701LL/A 2.0 GHz Black Verified Purchase
If you read this long-winded review you'll notice that I'll nitpick quite a bit. As a sort of a Cliff's notes, just look at the rating; overall I'm quite happy with it, though it has its annoyances here and there.

I've never been a Mac person, never owned one until I purchased this Macbook. I bought it to replace my Thinkpad, which I really like and will, to a degree, naturally compare the Macbook to.

The only reason I even considered a Mac in the first place is because of Apple's wise decision to create Boot Camp, the utility allowing you to easily install and dual-boot any Intel-based Mac with Windows.

The screen is nice, I was a bit apprehensive of having a laptop with a glossy screen, fearing glare would be a plaguing problem. I admit I have not used it outside much, but in all of the various places I have used it, it has proved to be a non-issue for me.

The magnetic power plug is a nice idea, however I find it a bit more annoying than useful. The idea is to make a snag-free power cable; it has a fair amout of resistance if you pull on it straight outwards, but from an angle, i.e. a pet or child tripping up on it, the cable will easily disconnect from the laptop. It's a nice idea and can potentially prevent an expensive accident, but I find that it can easily disconnect from just maneuvering it around a bit on my bed. It's not a big deal though, and pretty much a non issue if it's on a table or desk.

The keyboard is slightly odd at first, but I quickly grew to like the feel. The key layout, however, is another story. Possibly the thing I liked most about my Thinkpad was its keyboard, they have the best keyboards on any laptop in my opinion. My primary grudge with the Mac keyboard is the page up/down and home/end positioning.
