Apple MacBook (Mid-2010) review
Build Quality: 9/10
Value for Money: 9/10
Thereâ€™s a very slight performance increase introduced by the 2.4GHz processor, but where the Apple MacBook really scores is in increased battery life, and a graphics controller that usefully expands the gaming possibilities of this laptop. As a complete package, with its safer and more stable OS X operating system, and huge multi-touch trackpad unmatched in the Windows world, the Apple MacBook earns a worthy recommendation for anyone looking for a reliable, easy-to-use portable. It remains a fast and enjoyable-to-use laptop and weâ€™d argue itâ€™s the best value notebook under Â£1000.
Review Apple MacBook 2010-05 Notebook
Very quiet running noise
Very good input devices
Excellent battery life
Fast 320M onboard graphics card
Limited number of ports
Sharp front edge
Windows drivers aren't perfect
Still no Core-i processor
For: Great new graphics card
Extended battery life
Only a minor price increase
As gorgeous as ever
Against: Still uses Core 2 Duo CPU
Good performance, very attractive and different, lovely gloss display, fantastic trackpad, very good chiclet keyboard, quiet and cool. Much more powerful than old generation pre-unibody MacBooks, can support large monitors.
The MacBook looks a bit weak compared to the slightly more expensive MacBook Pro 13". Casing can scratch, battery isn't swappable.
