The 13.3" MacBook Notebook Computer from Apple is a compact and lightweight Mac notebook computer, housed in a durable polycarbonate unibody enclosure. Boasting a white color scheme, the notebook features such ergonomic enhancements as contoured corners and a non-slip bottom surface.
The system's 13.3" LED-backlit LCD display produces crisp and brilliant images. It features a glossy finish for enhanced color saturation, and a native resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels -- giving you plenty of screen real estate for multitasking. The computer's built-in iSight webcam rests snugly above the display, allowing you to participate in web chats without the need of a clunky external webcam.
An advanced integrated battery allows you to use the computer for up to 7 hours between charges. When the computer is plugged into the wall, it's via a power adapter with a MagSafe connector. MagSafe technology connects the power adapter to the computer via a magnetic bond. The MagSafe connector will harmlessly separate from the computer if you trip over the cord, helping to prevent damage.
The system features a comfortable chiclet-style keyboard, which will be immediately familiar to anyone who has used a MacBook before. The MacBook now boasts a glass Multi-Touch trackpad, the same type found on the MacBook Pro. The trackpad does not have a separate mouse button, as its entire surface acts as a button. This increases the active surface area, and allows you to quickly click, even if your finger is near the top of the trackpad.
What's more, the smooth surface fully supports Multi-Touch gestures -- you can tap the trackpad with one finger to click, with two fingers to right click, scroll through documents using two fingers, pinch to zoom, navigate through Safari or iPhoto with three-finger left and right swipes, or use two fingers to rotate a photo or PDF.
iLife '09, a complete suite of digital creativity applications, is installed on the system. Easy enough for anyone to use, iLife will help you edit your home movies, organize digital photos, and compose original music.
The system is powered by a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU and boasts 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive, Apple's SuperDrive DVD burner, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an iSight webcam. The glossy 13.3" widescreen display is powered by nVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics.
All this hardware runs on Apple's Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard operating system. The 64-bit OS features Time Machine backup, which automatically backs up system data to an external hard drive. It also features intuitive Cover Flow navigation, the powerful Spotlight search tool, and Quick Look document preview. You'll be able to use Boot Camp to run Windows on your Mac, or Front Row to turn your Mac into an impressive media player.
