13.3inch Apple MacBook main features
13.3 inch glossy widescreen
The moment you open your new MacBook, its glossy LED-backlit display greets you with glorious, full-screen brightness, and brings your photos, films and presentations alive with luminous colour. The widescreen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels gives you plenty of room to multitask, yet it's compact enough to take anywhere. And the display is greener than ever: power efficient, free of harmful toxins such as mercury and made of arsenic-free glass.
MacBook features the new NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor. With a performance boost of up to 80 percent over the previous generation,2 it provides outstanding speed and power for things like browsing photos and watching films. Its advanced architecture delivers smooth, responsive action for games like Spore, Call of Duty and Sims 3. So you can immerse yourself in digital worlds that come to life with rich colour, fine detail and fluid game-play. And when you’re not busy beating your high scores, the new NVIDIA graphics processor makes all the other things you do on a MacBook - like writing email and surfing the web - fast and energy efficient.
With a fast 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, MacBook breezes through everyday tasks such as emailing, web browsing and working with documents, spreadsheets and presentations in iWork or Microsoft Office for Mac (sold separately). 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.
Music, photos and films - not to mention your documents and other files - start adding up. That's why MacBook includes a large 250GB hard drive with options up to a voluminous 500GB, so you can take it all with you.
Up to 10 hours per charge, up to 1000 recharges
Take MacBook with you everywhere without worrying about plugging in or even carrying your power adapter. Its built-in lithium-polymer battery now lasts up to 10 hours on a single charge,1 which makes it perfect for long flights, all-day workshops and marathon study sessions. The new energy-efficient NVIDIA integrated graphics processor improves battery life by using less power for everyday tasks like writing email and surfing the web. And thanks to advanced battery chemistry and adaptive charging technology, the MacBook battery can be recharged up to 1000 times - good for about five years of typical use - and lasts nearly three times the lifespan of typical notebook batteries.4 That makes for less waste. And that, in turn, makes for one environmentally friendly battery.
More room to navigate, more ways to interact
The first thing you might notice - or not notice - about the Multi-Touch track-pad is the button. The entire track-pad is the button, so you can click anywhere on the touch-friendly glass surface. Not having a separate button also makes for a larger track-pad surface, giving your fingers more room to move, click and gesture. And because the track-pad supports Multi-Touch gestures, you can use one or more fingers to interact with your documents, images and applications with gestures such as pinch, swipe and rotate. Move up and down a document or web page smoothly with new built-in support for inertial scrolling. And if you come from a right-click world, you can configure a right-click area on the track-pad or simply press with two fingers.
Even the power cord is an innovation
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, it 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 built-in AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi.5 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.6 Have a phone, headset, keyboard or mouse with Bluetooth wireless technology? They can all connect to your MacBook courtesy of built-in Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR technology - and it remembers all your devices, too.
Burn CDs and DVDs
MacBook comes standard with a built-in SuperDrive. What makes it super? You can enjoy your favourite DVD films and music CDs. You can burn your own CDs or DVDs to back up data or create your own music mixes. Or you can use the included iDVD software to burn Hollywood-style iMovie creations, then watch them on a DVD player.
Ports with possibilities
With MacBook, you get easy plug-and-play support for your digital devices, including your digital camera, printer, external hard drive, mouse and keyboard — not to mention your iPhone, iPad and iPod. Just connect them to one of the handy ports. Want to expand your workspace? The Mini DisplayPort connects directly to an Apple LED Cinema Display, and supports VGA and DVI for connecting to a projector, as well as DisplayPort and HDMI for connecting to a flat-panel TV.7 MacBook also includes a Gigabit Ethernet port, a headphone jack that doubles as an audio-in port, and a convenient lock slot so you can keep your MacBook secure.
Built-in iSight camera
Back to top
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, and you can be anywhere without actually being there. Video chat with up to three of your friends, share a video with your mum or give a presentation to a client.6 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 on 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.
