Summary: The laptop was not really described honestly. The charger didn't work, the disk drive didn't work and the letter k didn't work and I needed to fix it. I have been told I will be reimbursed $50 however I will need to spend much more on it to get it fixed. I have already spent $150 on a new charger and getting the k letter fixed.
Summary: Giving this MacBook model even two stars is being kind, Being a long time Mac user and having owned numerous models this one is an Apple disaster. It's absolutely the worst designed MacBook I've ever seen, The first time I removed the uppercase/keyboard to take out the non-functioning CD/DVD drive I could not believe the number of screws that were involved to get to it.
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. My grievances are twofold: First, there is no auto slide-out cup holder, but just a small narrow slot in its place; Second, the screen is very fragile - I'd heard much ado about Apple touchscreens...
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. Mine regularly crashes (and when I say crash, I MEAN crash i.e.
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. I am writing this on my 5 year old £300 Toshiba which has been trouble free! I wonder if Apple are more interested in how their products look rather than their quality....
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a fantastic delivery (and returns) service - which no company can touch in my opinion, the Macbook was loaded with out-of-date software.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 Apple. I would have to pay to upgrade (£46). They informed me that had I bought from Apple the software would be up-to-date.
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". I spent one hour on the phone to applemac helpline but they could not help.
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
