Summary: E-mailed Newegg and was told they'd look for one even though a power adapter is apparently considered a non-essential accessory, letting me know if they couldn't find it. Never heard back, so I e-mailed again and they said they were out of stock, but that I could try Apple again.
Pros: Cheaper than buying new from Apple, especially since the MacBook has now been officially end-of-lifed, and they seem to work ok.
Cons: Bought 2 of these, one for Mom and one for my Niece. One came with a broken plug on the extension to the power adapter, the other didn't even have an extension. Luckily I had ones on mine to loan them, but if you don't you chance being out of luck. Also, there were pretty severe cracks in the top...
Summary: Despite a fantastic delivery (and returns) service - which no company can touch in my opinion, the Macbook was loaded with out-of-date software. I contacted Apple to try to get free up-dates (as is the case when bought from Apple) but they declined saying that Amazon wasn't a registered retailer for...
Summary: When I first received my macbook I loved it. It was lovely to look at and feel and for the first half hour of use it was very fast at searching the internet. But alas my joy was short lived, it would not connect to web pages just kept searching and then gave up and said "can't connect to server".
Summary: Generally underwhelmed by this laptop. It looks nice, but like LA beach or a hooker who later turns out to be a man (didn't spot Adam's apple or oversized hands. Schoolboy error (irony being he was dressed as a schoolgirl)) it promised so much yet delivered staggeringly little.
reliability is not great. A lot of money for what it is

Summary: Got mine in January. Now on 3rd machine in April. First one had the hinge crack (as have 2 friends who have the same model) then the next one the screen failed and developed a 2" line down the centre of the screen. My third one is 2 weeks old and is starting to crack on the hinge again.
Summary: After reading reviews for years about the stability of the Mac and all the great features, I decided to pay the excessive amount for the Macbook (white) even though I didn't feel the cost justified the spec. It is a very sleek unit with some very sexy features, but I wouldn't say it's stable.
Excerpt: Na een paar uurtjes spelen op de mac van een kennis was ik onder de indruk van het gebruiksgemak van dit systeem en heb ik zelf ook een macbook gekocht. Wat me erg beviel aan de macbook was de degelijke constructie. De behuizing is stevig en bevat geen klepjes en schuifjes die kapot kunnen gaan.
Pros: Robuust ontwerp, gebruiksvriendelijk
Cons: Ongeschikt voor gebruik achter bureau, scherm niet ver genoeg open, slechte dvd drive
Excerpt: Ich musste mir ein Laptop kaufen, da meine Freundin ihres wiederhaben wollte. Ich hatte immer Window gehabt: bald geht es in die Berufswelt und dort wird dann manchmal Macintosh erwartet. Ich glaub's immernoch nicht !!!
Pros: klein, kompakt, geniale Idee : Netzstecker/Kamera im Deckel, Trackpad ausstellbar
Cons: das schlechteste ! ! ! Display ! ! ! das ich kenne ! ! ! Office läuft in der Geschwindigekeit eines 486ers
