Apple MacBook 13 inch

This is a review of my Apple MacBook. Here are the exact specifications:

Model Name: MacBook
Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
Processor Speed: 2 GHz
Number Of Processors: 1
Total Number Of Cores: 2
L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB
Memory: 1 GB
Bus Speed: 667 MHz
Hard drive: 80 GB

Overall: 9
The very best thing about this laptop, and all Apple computers in the lack of viruses that are out to get you. Specifically for this laptop I really like the portability.

My girl friend has the 17 inch model and although the bigger screen is nice sometimes it is just too big to carry around all the time. I also like the sleek white design.

One thing that I do not like is that the plastic around the edges of the wrist-rest area have started to come off. Also, although the white design is pretty it shows dirt very quickly and is almost impossible to keep clean.

Keyboard: 10
The keyboard is very nice and responsive. I have never had any problems at all with it.

Touch Pad: 10
The touch pad is also excellent, much better than on any other laptop I have owned.

Speakers: 7
The speakers are OK for laptop speakers. They are lacking in bass obviously but sound pretty good. Be careful though, it is pretty easy to blow them if you play your stuff too loud (my brother did in just a few months)

Speed/Performance: 7
Performs great for most people but I only gave it a 7 because it's not as good for music software as I had heard. It would not run Live 8 with more than a few tracks playing at once. Works great for internet'n and what not though.

All and all I would probably recommend this laptop to a friend. I have had far less trouble with it than any other laptop I've owned (all PC in the past)
