Summary: It's so slow it takes forever to start up and the wifi connection is horrible. The reason why I chose to get a mac was because of its speed and performance. But it's really let me down. It might be due to the fact that its a second hand laptop. I don't know.
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.
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a fantastic delivery (and returns) service - which no company can touch in my opinion, the Macbook was loaded with out-of-date software.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: 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: 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.
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
Excerpt: Ich bin Besitzer des MacBooks - kein Stolzer Besitzer allerdings. Ich arbeite normalerweise mit Windows jeder Version in der Firma, aber Freunde aus der Werbebranche empfahlen mir das Apple MacBook Core Duo mit MacOSX.
Pros: Wenn man ihn hat, sieht es so aus als hätte man Geld
