"Macbook 13.3 inch 2GHz 160GB Memory 2GB Ram"

This is the cheapest of the new macbooks and so is best for students who don't have very much money to spend, but are looking for a great and fully functional laptop.

This laptop looks incredible and is made from a single piece of aluminium. This makes it very thin at just under 1 inch thick. The screen is an ample 13.3 inch and as well as this the screen is glossy to make the images even more pronounced than in the previous versions.

It is has an integrated graphics processor that allows you to play complex 3d games such as Spore and Need for Speed - Carbon. The graphics processor is a top of the range nVidia Geforce 9400M, which delivers 5 times more graphics performance than the previous version.

The best thing about the new Macbook is the new almost touchscreen mousepad in which you use your fingers to produce complex manipulations of the virtual environment. For instance, you can use your two fingers to scroll up and down the screen or pinch to zoom in and out.

This version of the Macbook has 2GHz of memory speed and comes with 160GB of hard disk space to keep music, photos and documents as well as 2GB of RAM. It also comes with iLife '08 software preinstalled, which includes: iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, iDVD, iWeb and Garageband. I would also recommend you get iWork '08 for only £55 instead of getting the Microsoft Office Apple conversion as it is cheaper (Office costs £99.99) and if you want to use Microsoft Office you might as well stay with Windows.

In conclusion, it looks great, but might not have the degree of power or sophistication most more advanced users want from a Macbook.

"Key Feature: Price - best for students"
