“The MacBook, unveiled with updates to the iMac and Mini lines last month, is still priced at $999 — $200 less than the 13-in. aluminum-clad MacBook Pro. But compared to the model it replaces, Apple’s latest entry-level portable delivers an updated architecture, a beefier hard drive and a higher-quality screen,” DeAgonia reports.
“The biggest change from the old model is the redesigned plastic housing, which is created using Apple’s ‘unibody’ manufacturing process. While still encased in the shiny white plastic that has been the hallmark of the line for years, Apple’s latest MacBook forgoes the boxy look in favor of flowing lines, swooping angles and a precision fit,” DeAgonia reports. “The end result is a solid laptop that feels sculpted instead of assembled and has the processing power users need.”
“Is the MacBook right for you? It is, if you’re looking to trim costs as much as possible but still want a high-quality Apple laptop. All things considered, the MacBook’s build quality, LED screen, updated components and, of course, Snow Leopard make it a solid deal at $999,” DeAgonia reports.
