Apple MacBook 13in - Aluminium 2008 Edition

 

Beautiful. Expensive. Brilliant. Flawed. Apple's new MacBook is all these things, but what does Andy think of it?

No one can deny the end result is visually impressive. Apple has always been known for minimalist design, but the new MacBook takes this to new heights. It's just so effortlessly sleek. Its tapered edges aid the low profile appearance and the unibody...

Apple MacBook Air review

 

Is Apple's the ultra-thin notebook to rule them all?

Apple MacBook (white) notebook

 

The Apple MacBook white is currently the only plastic model in Apple's line-up of laptop computers, with the rest of the MacBook Pro line coming in aluminium. Stacked up against the most basic MacBook Pro model it looks pretty good: the same processor,...

Interesting design, great size and weight, powerful enough to use as an everyday notebook, trackpad

Some flex in deck, scratches easily, you lose a number of connection from the Pro models, battery not changeable and no external battery meter

The MacBook white doesn't have the wow factor of the aluminium unibody MacBook models. As an entry point for Apple's notebook line it is relatively well specced against some PC rivals, but does come in at a price that might draw you back to the Windows...

Apple MacBook notebook

 

If you're don't deem yourself pro enough to opt for the MacBook Pro, Apple has updated its MacBook range to feature the precision aluminium unibody as well. But what is the real difference, and in these "credit crunch" times can you really save some...

Size, design, ease of use

USB sockets too close together, glossy screen

Like the MacBook Pro, this is Apple turning its design eye to the laptop and making a very shiny toy that is likely to appeal to the Mac set through and through.

The (LED) light fantastic

The LED backlight is beautiful and the performance remains admirable

iLife 08 should be included as standard. Two USB ports is a little frugal for most people

Apple MacBook 2GHz with nVidia GeForce 9400M review

 

While Apple's MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops have been re-engineered to include an all-aluminum unibody design, this lone polycarbonate model remains.

As far as system updates go, the changes to new white Apple MacBook are welcome, if subtle. The new faster graphics will make casual gamers happy, and who doesn’t like additional RAM? Although the slightly slower processor didn’t help performance any,...

Apple MacBook review

 

We review the new Apple MacBook, the talk of the town that's sporting a body crafted from a single ingot of aluminium.

Some users may be put off by the reflective screen, and perhaps more again by the exclusion FireWire, leaving just ethernet and two USB for physical data ports. Then there is the issue of price, since the entry point for buying a Mac portable has now...

Red dot design award!

Expert review by : reddot (red-dot.de (UK))

MacBook

 

The MacBook is a notebook with a thickness of 2.75 cm, which is available in black or white. It is equipped with a 13.3” widescreen display and is available with either a 1.83 or a 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The casing is made of polycarbonate...

MacBook review

 

With a faster processor and improved graphics, the MacBook gains a bit of a boost.

With its faster processor, improved graphics and longer battery life, the MacBook is an attractive option for budget-conscious laptop shoppers. Performance-wise, the MacBook isn’t much different from the 13in 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro – the extra...

MacBook 2.13GHz review

 

The white MacBook gets an upgrade - is it enough to justify the price rise?

Faster processor, larger capacity hard drive, only MacBook with FireWire 400, comparatively long battery life

No video adapters or Apple Remote in the box

If you’re in the market for an affordable Mac laptop, the white MacBook (now the only MacBook) is still a good bargain. Although its price increase is regrettable, the performance gains make it even faster. While an argument surrounding Apple’s overall...
