  • Conclusion: But once you have the MacBook in your hands, it's hard to stay grumpy. This thing is amazing, from its Retina display to its somehow shallow yet tactile keyboard to its featherweight convenience and remarkable battery life. Apple can work wonders when it wants to, and it's done it again.
  • Pros: Incredibly light, thin, and compact, Epic battery life, Brilliant Retina display and backlit keyboard
  • Cons: USB Type-C port won't fit existing peripherals, No SD card slot or MagSafe power connector, Shallow keyboard travel takes some getting used to

25 July 2011
  • Conclusion: The already impressive Apple MacBook Air 11-inch (Thunderbolt) gets Apple's OS X Lion, a speedier processor, Thunderbolt technology, but for this price other laptops offer more features.

Review Apple MacBook Aluminum 2.0 GHz (Unibody, 13", 9400M, P7350)

Notebookcheck
27 April 2009
  • Conclusion: After we've had the 2.4 GHz Unibody Apple MacBook in review, the small 2.0 GHz starter version introduced itself. The buyer receives a 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo T7350, a smaller hard disk, and unfortunately an unlit keyboard for 300.00 Euros less.
  • Pros: Design, Workmanship, Stability, Touchpad (under Mac OS X)
  • Cons: Glossy display, Minimalistic keyboard lettering, Expensive, Few ports, Poorer Window drivers

Apple MacBook 2.0GHz Review

Digitaltrends
13 March 2009
  • Conclusion: I’ve owned and used many Apple computers, both PowerPC and Intel-based. I am a terribly finicky user and it takes a lot to impress me. It is even harder to get me to dote over a product like a proud parent, but I can say without a doubt that the MacBook is absolutely my favorite laptop ever.
  • Pros: Very inexpensive, Light weight, Near silent, Exceptional battery life, Super-bright screen, iSight camera built-in

Apple MacBook (2.4GHz, 2008) Review

Digitaltrends
13 March 2009
  • Conclusion: A variety of aesthetic updates, including Apple’s unibody frame, LED-backlit display, and multitouch pad make the latest MacBook sharper than ever, but it may not be enough to justify the $1,299 base price if style isn’t part of your agenda.
