“According to the sales-research organization NPD Group, the midrange model of [Apple’s] MacBook has been the single best-selling laptop of any brand in U.S. retail stores for the past five months,” Walt Mossberg reports for The Wall Street Journal. “So, when Apple completely revamped the design of the MacBook last week, it was a big deal, not only for Mac die-hards, but for anyone shopping for an everyday laptop.”
Mossberg reports, “I’ve been testing the base model of the new MacBook for the past five days, and I like it a lot, despite a few downsides. I found this new MacBook to be speedy, solid, innovative, and comfortable to use, with very good battery life.”
“The new model sports a sturdy aluminum case, instead of the old plastic one, and looks gorgeous,” Mossberg reports.
“Like all current Macs, the new MacBooks come with Apple’s Leopard operating system, which I consider superior to Windows. But the new MacBooks can run Windows as well,” Mossberg reports.
“Apple’s new MacBook is a terrific choice for consumers and students, if you can handle the $1,299 price,” Mossberg concludes.
