  • Excerpt: A truly well-written book is one that captivates your attention and empowers your imagination. When you find a real page-turner, it's almost impossible to put down. Although it may not be what you're thinking of, Apple has expertly authored their new 13" MacBook. The notebook retains design advantages evolved from generations of PowerBooks while also addressing some of the most serious issues that have sometimes surfaced with previous models.

  • Conclusion: It's obvious that Apple has put a lot of thought into the MacBook, and new features like the four-finger gestures shows that the company is pushing the usability envelope. This is our favourite Apple Mac yet.
  • Pros: Need to pay extra for VGA or DVI adapters, No FireWire, Trackpad is unreliable under Windows
  • Cons: Stunning design, Well built, LED backlighting as standard, Excellent performance and battery life

ZDNet
23 October 2008
  • Excerpt: Apple's redesigned 13in. MacBook is essentially a shrunken version of the more expensive 15in. Pro line. With its new aluminium body, new touchpad and Nvidia graphics, it's an even more attractive choice for mainstream notebook buyers than was the plastic model it replaces.
  • Pros: New aluminium construction looks good, feels solid, Giant touchpad, Attractive edge-to-edge glass on display, Improved integrated graphics, Backlit keyboard, Thinner than previous version
  • Cons: Still no ExpressCard or SD-card slot, Loses FireWire port, All-clicking touchpad is a bit awkward, at least initially, Entry-level model now has a slower CPU than before

  • Summary: They do say “You can't teach an old dog new tricks.” Of course this is a generalisation that could not apply to you and me – or maybe it could. I decided to put it to the test with myself in the role of the “old dog”.
