Pros great software great design isight magnetic power cord and cool magnetic latch
Cons runs a little warm every so often battery runs kind of quick
Summary I recently purchased this macbook(my first mac ever) because I am going away to school next year and I needed a light, small, compact laptop that has power within it's size. First of all I have to give apple credit with going with the black version of this computer because of all of the horror stories with the black nano was mune to scratches, they made the outside of the Macbook with a matte finshe so it wasn't shiny and mune to scratches. Personally I like a larger screen but when I heard and saw this macbook it was love at first isight haha anyway I was going to go with The macbook pro because of its capability but then the macbook has bout everything the macbook pro has the 15 inch dosen't have the cool trackpad capibiliity but the 17inch pro does like 2 finger right click is a huge upgradefrom the ibook and powerbook. Isight is so cool photobooth is awsome i love video chatting. The ILIFE suite is amazing I don'tplay games on computers so the video card is fine for me but if you are a gamer just consider the macbook pro but who play's games on a mac why wold you buy mac if you are going to be playing games??? any ways to conclude this review I gave this cool black mac a 9 out of 10 And think of this when you go mac you never go back
Pros Great software, look, durability, decent battery life
Cons gets hot at times
Summary I have had my macbook for a couple months now and i absolutely love it. It is my first mac and I have had no trouble switching. There is now way I will buy a pc again. Still havent had time to explore all the features in iphoto and idvd. Only complaint is some heat if it is on your lap sometimes, however it is not a huge issue. Love the magnetic features as well as the slot loading cd/dvd port instead of the standard one. remote makes viewing dvds, pics, and music easier. great laptop.

Pros Runs great has great features user servicable
Cons Runs warmer then i would like
Summary Great notbook im happy i chose the black especially since the whte ones are having a discolor problem. They are starting to have orange blotches. I hope apple takes care of that with people and like they should. As for the black one the one i have its great with its size for travel. Great screen. 1280x800 is respectable for a notebook. If you are a pro obviously you need more resolution but for me just great. Grapnics card built in with shared memory 64 mb to be exact is shared with system memory. Thats not fun but for what I use it for its perfect. Video conf is great on ichat clear as usual. Great windows xp for the basic crap you may need it for such as certain videos or websites. Runs very fast but be warned it can get viruses even if its on a mac. Luckily it wont affect the mac os x partition of your hd So no worries on that part. I recomment it to anyone. Especially if you dont want to carry a pro laptop that is worth over 2 grand around. =)
Pros Beautiful fit and finish
Summary Bought two of these notebooks towards the end of May. After throughly enjoying the first few minutes, my happiness diminished as the heat increased and the fan spinned on high while merely surfing the web. Within minutes, my thigh had a laptop sized red patch of skin. I tried the other notebook, same issues but not as severe. To make matters worse when I returned the laptops I was given a hard time, "Notebooks are not supposed to be used on laps", as well as other excuses. When I asked about issues with heat I was told that Apple's official stance was there weren't any issues. After about 45 minutes of talking to one manager, and another, and another I got my money back(45 minute disagreement ensued due to wanting the open box fee also returned to me). Yes the laptop is beautiful but buyer beware. Currently I am typing this with my SONY cool and comfortable on my lap.
"A GREAT Laptop"on by stevespits
Pros Fast processor, great included software, intuitive everything.
Cons I haven't found one yet,
Summary I would have rated this a ten, but I thought no one would believe me. I love this laptop. I started out with an Apple IIe back in the mid 1980s, and I was a loyal Mac fan until the originak introduction of OSX. I hated the constant flipping from 9 to X so I have been buying PC machines the past few years. Upon my return with this laptop I don't know why I ever left. The Mac is the ultimate. I haven't had one problem, and have relearned how to operate a Mac very quickly. The perfect size of this laptop makes using it on the move easy. I carry it everywhere. The included software is so much more able than the arcane Microsoft software, and I can do so much more. BUY THIS LAPTOP. It is a masterpiece of design. I admit I don't edit video, which the other Mac laptops are designed for. This does everything.
