I've owned this laptop for a year and a half now and it is easily the most versatile, reliable and best looking laptop I have ever used. I would place most of the credit on the operating system- Mac OS X Leopard. After using Vista for a year on a £800 hp laptop, I was willing to accept anything...

ConsNONE!

After owning a Powerbook G4 previously, I needed a replacement - I looked around and considered buying a Sony Vaio - but ended up back with Apple and purchased the MacBook Core 2 Duo with Intel processor. I went for the smallest one of the 3 - only because it was purely for home use. I only use...

I've had my Macbook for about 5 months now. My previous PC was a large self built gaming machine. I had been running Vista on the machine and was quite disappointed with the lack of progress on from Windows XP. I bought the Macbook after seeing a demo online. I was just blown away at how fast it...

switching to mac is hard to do, but when you have it in front of you and hve worked with it a few days, you will never go back! this is my first mac, but i have decided nevert o get anything else, since macs just work better than any PC i have owned or used. this is a lovely size, it has a sleek design and a good battery time. what more can you want`? i am not an extreme user, i use it for university, internet and watching films, and it might be better than that, i could probably have a cheaper one tbh.

I wanted a Mac so badly before I got one. When I finally got it, I was excited! Up until it starting to fall apart. My opinion of the all white 13 inch MacBook is that it's not very well made. I bought my Macbook in 2010 (it's only 2011) and the bottom that covers the battery has already started...
