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: 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a fantastic delivery (and returns) service - which no company can touch in my opinion, the Macbook was loaded with out-of-date software.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: Apples nya dator är just nu världens tunnaste dator, men för att få den så tunn så har Apple varit tvugna att skära ner på vissa delar eller helt enkelt ta bort dem. Den nya datorn har som ett exempel ingen CD-rom spelare, vilket gör att man ej kan se på några som helst filmer, DVD, med sin dator. Men, det ger en också andra problem då man ej kan installera program till sin dator eller spela spel.
Excerpt: Jag har nu provtestat denna i en månad och det är "by far" den coolaste dator jag någonsin har haft i mina ägor. Men när jag skriver dessa sista rader med den så måste jag på samma gång erkänna att för mig ska inte en dator vara cool/fräck. Den ska vara användarvänlig, smidig att ta med sig och göra det som du vill att den ska göra. Mac uppfyller 2/3 men med det höga priset, så är inte det tillräckligt.
