The black looks great. It is not shiny, but matte. It is not painted on, but infused in poly-whatever material used to make the case. It is durable and buffs clean from fingerprints when needed.
The magsafe connector is great. I have damaged other laptops from tripping over the power cord, no more with magsafe. I also love the lack of a latch, as magnets hold the laptop closed--a nice touch.
It gets a bit warm, but honestly it doesn't bother me. I prefer that the fans are as quite as they are. It is a trade off, cool computer=loud computer. I prefer a bit warmer and whisper quiet as the MacBook is.
What else can I say? It is super fast, it runs OS X and Windows, it has a beautiful screen, and it feels great in my hand, and works perfectly. I can make DVDs that play on my lousy cheap DVD player hooked to my TV (that my PC can't seem to). I think the huge track pad is great. You can use two fingers to scroll thru documents and use two fingers instead of one to right-click. Yes, a Mac laptop that can right click--finally.
The only complaint is the speakers are small and not very loud for some things. Without headphones, hearing sound when watching DVDs is hard, since DVDs have a wide sound range, so the lower volume sound, like dialog can be difficult to hear whereas the music and explosions are easier. Even if I turn it up full volume, I cannot hear everything. To make this better, I downloaded the free VLC player for DVDs and media, as it allows me to boost the gain with an equalizer, and be able to hear dialog. iTunes also has an equalizer, so boosting the gain is fine in that program. Upshot, speakers small, not perfect, if a problem, use headphones or software that adds an equalizer.Read more ›
Well, overall impression is very good. Great looking as most Apple's products. 1"thick and has decent small factor for road warrior.
Performance: It is about 2-3 times faster than my old 12.1 G4PB depending on what you run. Everything is very snappy and OS Tiger and iLife'06 work flawlessly. One of the best OS yet. I recommend to reinstall the system. I get around 5GB back by eliminating those programs, etc. that I do not need. Otherwise, it takes around 17GB for complete installation. Quite a lot as it comes straight from factory, me think.
Features: Well, here is what MacBook really shines. It comes with all you would ever need at the best price package. Look at specs yourselves and you will understand what I am saying. I would recommend getting aftermarket memory stick (1GB costs around under $90). Even upgrade to 1.25GB, it is really worth it. Unlike old small iBook, MacBook aftermarket do-it-yourselves upgrade is a breeze whether memory or harddisk.
What is hot: 1. Built-in iSight is pretty good. Better than my expectation. 2. Very nice responsive keyboard and trackpad. You might need to adjust your trackpad response per your personal preference. 3. Keyboard at first look seems unusual, but after a few hours, it think that it does stand out from usual crowd. 4. Nice wireless iDVD remote. 5. Subtle glossy screen, delivers awesome picture quality, while dose not produce too much glare while you are outdoor. 6. Magsafe is one great addition. Very well thought out and design indeed.
What is not: 1. Heat is way beyond my liking. However, it is only at top left of the laptop bottom, where you connect power supply (Magsafe).Read more ›
i had a Powerbook G4 and the Intel Macbook blows it away. This is a really fast laptop, and it was easy to add software and content from my old computer to my new powerbook with software included on powerbooks. It walks you through the transfer and using firewire makes it very fast.
Unlike my old G4 the powerbook comes with a glossy screen. It's GREAT. The screen is much brighter, and the colors much more vibrant then the older screens. I was worried about reflections, and yes if you put the sun behind you, you'll have a problem. But in every other situation this a great display. I used to have problems seeing the screen out on the deck, or in a car (no, not driving) but with the glossy screen it is much easier to work out of doors.
Lastly I think that since Apple has vastly increased system bus speeds, and is using faster memory has contributed to dramatic increase in performance.
Windows people should rest assured switching will be a pleaurable experience. And those of you upgrading from power pc Macs can rest assured the change to Intel is a good think.
Oh by the way: we haven't had any problems with noise, this computer runs very quite. It is warm on the bottom as are most laptops. I have seen the video's on YouTube.com about noisey fans, and the ones I've seen are using graphics intensive applications for prolonged periods of time.Read more ›
