Apple MacBook 13in White (MC240B/A)

 

Now Apple has the 13in MacBook Pro, is it still worth thinking about the white MacBook? We take a look to find out.

Other standard features include Draft-N Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 2.1, as a well as Gigabit Ethernet. You also get Apple's iLife 09 multimedia suite, as has been the case with MacBooks for a long time now, which combined with OS X makes for a thorough and...

Apple MacBook - 2009 Edition (MC207B/A)

 

It's Apple's most affordable MacBook, but is the refreshed entry-level 13in model the best value option?

That's a nice upgrade, but predictably it's there to compensate for the features you miss. Most notably this includes the backlit keyboard, but also FireWire and, worst of all, the SD card reader. We'll quite happily live without a backlit keyboard and...

Apple MacBook 2009 review

 

After a couple of underwhelming updates the MacBook has been given an aluminium chassis and new screen. Is it enough to put Apple back on top?

Lighter, faster and better looking, the new MacBook rules its class with an aluminium fist

Apple MacBook review: Improved minimalist MacBook is still one port shy of laptop nirvana

 

The 12-inch MacBook gets a better battery and faster performance, but it's still a one-port-wonder.

The 12-inch MacBook gets a decent boost to performance and battery life, while keeping the same slim, light premium body. The high-res display and responsive trackpad remain the gold standard. Color options add a fun bit of personalization.

The single USB-C port will continue to be an inconvenience for many. The shallow keyboard isn't ideal for long-form typing. Other super-slim laptops manage to fit in more powerful processors.

With a handful of subtle improvements, the updated 12-inch Apple MacBook is more of a mainstream machine, but remains a few tweaks away from being the best laptop on the market.

Apple MacBook Summer 2009 (Core 2 Duo 2.13GHz review

 

While Apple still hasn't put a Netbook on the market, don't fault it for not trying to make its products more affordable. This year's WWDC 2009 keynote was all about lower price points and more features across the MacBook line, and leading off as the...

Good price for the specs, for a Mac; sturdy construction; no graphics compromise.

Older battery doesn't last as long as the new Pros; still no SD card slot or ExpressCard; white MacBook design is getting a little old.

For $999, it's hard to beat this MacBook's nearly MacBook-Pro-level specs if you're in the market for a budget Apple laptop.

Apple MacBook review

 

Apple has given its entry level laptop a spruce up. We take a look at the enhancements in this review.

Apple's new unibody polycarbonate construction brings a near, but not quite, premium feel to the MacBook, which is most definitely needed. The only real issue is that it's not much cheaper than the even better starter MacBook Pro.

Apple MacBook Late 2009

 

The price hike and loss of Firewire are annoying, but the improved screen, performance and battery life make this a strong upgrade.

The creeping price increases mean that the new MacBook doesn't offer quite the same value for money as earlier models, yet its continued success is testament to the sheer quality of Apple's design work. There are plenty of cheaper PC notebooks and...

Apple MacBook refresh review: first look

 

We take a first look at the updated MacBook, as well as the refreshed iMac, the new Mini server, and the Magic Mouse.

Aside from the price increase on the MacBook, there's plenty to like about the Apple's latest hardware refresh.

Apple MacBook 2.0 Ghz

 

The Apple MacBook 2.0 Ghz is a compact and powerful laptop, more than capable of coping with the photographer's demanding image processing needs.
