Good: Can't fault it
Bad: Trackpad can be tedious
Comment: What an incredible computer. It works extremely well and just does absolutely everything I want it to.
I upgraded the RAM from my original 2GB to the max 4GB, and the speed is unreal. I might only have the 2.00GHz Processor but it still is able to handle iMovie, Photoshop, iPhoto, Firefox, Adium and many more open at the same time!
Good: Design, operating system, ease of use
Bad: only 2 USB ports
Comment: After wrestling with the dilemma of purchasing either a white Macbook or the lower-spec 13-inch Macbook Pro after being a PC user for nearly 6 years (got so sick of Microsoft!), I decided to purchase the Macbook.
The Macbook does not compromise on style, and while the design may not be as sleek as the Pros, it delivers exactly the same product at a better price. OS X Snow Leopard is an ease to use, I have had no issues whatsover with it and love the fact that I have a computer now that just works.
If you don't need the Pros' high-end specs and just want a good, solid personal use laptop I highly recommend this!
