The 13.3" Apple MacBook is the must-see notebook of the season. From the laptop's durable unibody enclosure to the radiant LED-backlit display, a mere 1.08" thin and even lighter at 4.7 lbs than previous MacBooks, this sleek MacBook compuer cuts a slim profile on any desk (or in any backpack or briefcase).
A seamless, more durable unibody enclosure with rounded contours makes it easy to pick up and slide the MacBook into and out of your bag. It's made of rugged polycarbonate that withstands the rough and tumble of everyday life—at school, at work, or while traveling. Even the bottom of the new Apple MacBook feels different. Covering its entire surface is a non-slip material that keeps your MacBook right where you put it, whether on a desk, table, or an airplane tray.
MacBook now features an LED-backlit 13.3" glossy widescreen display for an even more spectacular viewing experience. Documents, videos, photos, and games look incredibly sharp and detailed. The LED backlighting delivers stunning colors and instant full-screen brightness the moment you open the lid. Apple MacBook's 1280-by-800 pixel resolution offers an outstanding balance of luminous color and easy readability in a perfectly portable size.
With MacBook, you get an amazing consumer-level graphics experience that's great for popular 3D games like Spore, Call of Duty, and Sims 3. The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor provides an outstanding everyday graphics experience with up to a 5x performance boost. Based on an advanced architecture, NVIDIA graphics deliver smooth, responsive gameplay, so you can immerse yourself in game worlds that come to life with rich color, fine detail, and fluid motion — all without sacrificing battery life.
With a fast 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, MacBook breezes through everyday tasks such as emailing, web browsing, and working with documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. It also provides plenty of horsepower for more processor-intensive activities such as retouching a photo in iPhoto, editing an iMovie project, and composing a new song using GarageBand, so you can make the most of the included iLife suite of applications. It even runs Microsoft Windows at native speeds. Better still, MacBook comes standard with 2GB of memory (with support for up to 4GB), so you can run multiple applications smoothly and efficiently. It also has a 250GB hard drive to give you plenty of space for keeping all your projects in one place.
Burn CDs and DVDs
MacBook comes standard with a built-in SuperDrive. What makes it super? You can enjoy your favorite DVD movies and music CDs. You can burn your own CDs or DVDs to back up data, create your own music mixes, or you can use the included iDVD software to burn Hollywood-style iMovie creations and then watch them on a DVD player.
Spacious glass Multi-Touch trackpad
This MacBook Multi-Touch trackpad has no button because it is the button. That means there's plenty of room to move your fingers around, and you can click anywhere — left, right, center, and everywhere in between. The trackpad features a silky smooth glass surface that feels great to the fingertips. Use it to perform familiar functions such as right-click or two-finger scroll as well as Multi-Touch gestures: pinch to increase font size in a document, rotate your fingers to reorient photos, swipe to navigate through web pages, and more.
A comfortable keyboard your fingers will love.
MacBook portability doesn't happen at the expense of key features. The keyboard is full size, with keys that are curved to contain your fingers and highly responsive to your touch. Its low-profile design integrates perfectly into the unibody enclosure, so you'll get a comfortable experience whether you're typing a quick email or writing a lengthy research report. The keyboard also gives you one-touch access to music and video controls and Mac OS X features such as Dashboard and Exposé.
Easy access to connections and ports
The connections and ports on MacBook — MagSafe power, Gigabit Ethernet, Mini DisplayPort, USB, and audio in/out — are all smartly integrated on the same side of the notebook. Your cables stay neatly organized, and connecting and disconnecting your devices is easy and convenient.
The MagSafe Power Adapter has a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So if someone happens to trip over the power cord while you're working, they won't send your new MacBook flying off a table or desk. Instead, the cord breaks cleanly away, without damage to either the cord or the system. As a bonus, you can tell if your MacBook is fully charged when the LED on the connector changes from amber to green.
Wireless that works
Connect to the Internet at fast speeds anywhere thanks to the built-in AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi. Like everything else about a Mac, joining Wi-Fi networks couldn't be simpler. If you've previously connected to a network, your Mac automatically logs you in so you can immediately email, surf the web, or video chat. Have a Bluetooth-enabled phone, headset, keyboard, or mouse? They can all connect to your MacBook courtesy of built-in Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR — and it remembers all your devices, too.
Built-in iSight camera
Cleverly integrated — almost hidden — at the top of the MacBook display is an iSight camera that takes photos and shoots video. Use it with the built-in microphone and the included iChat software, so you can be anywhere without actually being there. Video chat with up to three of your friends, share a video with your mom, or give a presentation to a client. Use your iSight with Photo Booth to take quick pictures and add fun photo effects, or use it with QuickTime X to record a video and share it to iTunes, MobileMe, or YouTube with just a click. Best of all, there's no need to waste valuable primping time installing software or configuring the camera. Like everything Mac, iSight just works, right out of the box.
Clean, simple interior design
MacBook is as well designed on the inside as on the outside. Turn it over and you'll notice a seamless, sturdy, single-piece bottom case with no battery compartment. That's because the lithium-polymer battery in the new MacBook is strategically built right into the enclosure. In addition to providing extra overall durability, this integrated design eliminates the space-consuming parts required by a removable battery. This allows more room for a larger-capacity battery that can run up to 7 hours on a single charge — all in an enclosure that is just as thin and even lighter. When you remove the bottom case, you'll discover a clean, simple interior layout that makes it easy to add more memory or a larger hard drive.
Your MacBook comes with the latest release of Mac OS X, which is loaded with features that let you do more, including:
•Safari: this fast web browser includes security features to enhance your online experience
•Mail: simplifies email with smart organizational tools and incorporate convenient notes and to-do features
•Address and iCal: this streamlined calendar program and address book are integrated with Mail for easy and seamless day planning
•Time Machine: this file back up system is easy, allowing you to see how your system looked on a given day and restore files with a click
•iChat: video chat with up to three people, deliver presentations with iChat Theater, and, of course, send instant messages
•Boot Camp: for those times when you need to use a Windows application, this feature allows you to open up your Mac in Windows
•iPhoto: Organize photos by Faces, based on who's in the photos—or Places, where the photos were taken
•iMovie: make a great movie, choose a dynamic theme to enhance your movie in seconds, or refine every shot with the Precision Editor
•Garageband: learn to play piano and guitar from the artists who made them famous and rock like a legend with the guitar amps and stompbox effects
•iWeb: design a website to share your photos, movies, and music just by dragging-and-dropping, add dynamic widgets, and publish and share with a click
•iDVD: create, customize, and share your movies and photo slideshows on a professional-quality DVD with animated menus, buttons, scene selections, and more
The longest-lasting MacBook battery ever
Now take MacBook with you everywhere without worrying about plugging in or even carrying your power adapter. Its built-in lithium-polymer battery lasts up to 7 hours on a single charge,1 which makes it perfect for long flights, all-day workshops, and marathon study sessions. Thanks to its advanced battery chemistry and charging technology, the MacBook battery can be recharged up to 1000 times — good for about five years of typical usage — and lasts nearly three times the lifespan of typical notebook batteries. That makes for less waste. And that, in turn, makes for one environmentally friendly battery.

Comments about Apple MacBook 13.3" (2.26GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB Hard Drive):
This computer is really great, it works really fast and is light weight so it's easily portable. But my only concern is that for those of you with bad vision, it has a really small screen and may be hard to see.
