The Apple Macbook is a beautifully designed laptop that is bristling full of features, many laptop manufacturers are jealous of the Apple Macbooks success in both the domestic and business market.
Since Apple introduced the Intel chip sets to its products many business people are turning to the Macbook as a portable laptop ideal for the road. Its simple design is uncluttered and perfectly proportioned.
The Macbook is Apple's most popular portable laptop it was developed for the education and consumer markets, and is the best-selling Macintosh in history.
There were two designs of the MacBook: the original and current model uses a polycarbonate case that was modeled after the iBook G4. The second type, introduced in October 2008 alongside the 15" MacBook Pro, used a similar unibody aluminium casing to the 15" Pro, and was updated and rebranded as the 13" MacBook Pro at the 2009 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2009.
The aluminium body version was styled on the sexy looking Macbook Pro which is a personal favorite of mine.
The polycarbonate Intel MacBook has been made easier for users to repair or up-grade than the previous models. Where the iBook needed vast disassembly to remove most of the internal components, including removal of the keyboard and RAM, users need only remove the polycarbonate MacBook's outer casing to access almost any interior component. Replacing the hard drive and memory requires merely the removal of the battery, and Apple provides do-it-yourself manuals for these tasks making the job a lot easier than before.
Some early polycarbonate models suffered random shut-down failures, this was remedied with software and firmware upgrades.
