    Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Notebook Computer (White Unibody):

    This is my first Mac, and I must say I'm VERY impressed with it. I don't think I'll ever go back to a PC again.
    I use this MacBook everyday for basic stuff - Word and Excel documents, Safari web browsing. I do some photo editing with Photoshop, and it performs flawlessly. With my old PC, the fan was always running and it would get SO SLOW just doing these same basic functions. But, no problem at all with my Mac.
    I do wish it had more USB ports. It only comes with two. So sometimes I have to unplug my printer to plug in a Flash memory stick, but other than that I have been EXTREMELY happy with this computer.

      No need to mess with all that ridiculous virus software that messes your computer up more than the viruses. No errors, no lock-ups. Computer is very quick, shuts down instantly. Cost double of a PC, but will be a trouble free, good coumputer for 4 times as long. Long battery life, great display.

        I was a PC user, and was kind of wary about buying a Mac, thinking it would be a hard transition. Not only is it completely user friendly, it's totally easy to use. It came packed very securely, in its original box, in perfect condition. I couldn't be more pleased with this product.

              Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Notebook Computer (White Unibody):

              I have been wanting a MacBook for a while now, and after a month of researching the best places to buy it, B&H was where I made my purchase. [...] I love my MacBook, it is much faster than any of my previous laptops. The battery life is much longer than what I am used to and it even comes with an extension cord! It seems this MacBook has thought of everything! The only thing that I wish were different is how it does not come preloaded with software that I would use as far as a spreadsheet or a program that I can write reports- basically the business aspects of a computer... however I know that it is not hard to get those additional programs. I have had many laptops, and none compare to the quality of my MacBook!

                  Comments about Apple 13.3" MacBook Notebook Computer (White Unibody):

                  I decided to try a Macbook after my former laptop (windows base) was dying on me. MS would only say that I had to reset to factory specs (lose everything) or upgrade. And, no there is no conspiracy there! But this is the 3rd time something like this has come up with windows laptops. I use it primarily for home use, pictures, web, some gaming, accounting and that sort of thing. Setup was weird for me because I am so used to windows. But I have a tech sort of mind, and in a short time I was up and running. The Macbook does out perform my former laptop despite the fact I have less ram and 256 v/s 512 video. Its smoother and I must say startup and shutdown is 10x faster. One of my pet issues. The OS feels like linux but with a much more solid graphical interface. The one click links on the bottom are nice and after a short time I seem to have the hang of this. After market software is not as plentiful as windows and I have some compatibility issues as I finally realize MAC compatible is not necessarily Snow Leopard compatible, so watch those details. But I am exceptionally pleased. B&H continually provides for better pricing, [...]. They did so again. I will be back soon, likely to get another one for my wife!

                      I love my new MacBook - the more I use it, the more I realize how pathetic my iBook was (the battery was dead, I could barely read the screen, and there was a dvd stuck in the disc drive that nobody could get out). This laptop is much faster, has a much better battery life and countless other helpful elements. The only complaint I have is the hassle it is to transfer & rebuild my iTunes library (especially playlists from scratch). But this has nothing to do with this laptop, this is a problem every time I change computers - I wish Apple would make this a more seamless process between iTunes and their computers. [...]

                            Bought this a birthday gift for my wife to replace her old, slow PC. After some initial trepidation, she now loves her MacBook.

                              Fabulous laptop, excellent performance, high quality build. If this is your first laptop, it is the best you can find overall.

                                  I'm using this, primarily, for personal use and am loving it. It was so easy to set up and has been so fun to use. We got this after getting one to many viruses on a slower, heavier pc laptop and have not been disappointed.

                                    The mac is by far superior to any other computer. When you turn on the computer you do not have to wait an hour for it load up. It is literally ready instantly. Doesn't take too much time getting used to the mac. And this was by far the best price available.

                                    I just reciently ordered this from B&H. [...] I wanted to get a Macbook because I had problems with HP notebooks in the past and i decided I wanted to try something new. Great Choice! B&H has the best price and value arround online for this computer! I did buy the $189 three year warrentee from B&H as well I highly reccomend getting that when you purchase this computer. [...] The computer was very easy to set up when you start it up for the first time. They say "Once you go Mac you dont go back." After numberous trips to Best Buy and researching macs finding this with B&H was the best deal I found! I highly reccomend this computer for windows users who just start entering in the Mac world. A+ for B&H and A++ for this notebook!
