Apple MacBook
With the Intel Core Duo CPU at 2 GHz instead of the PowerPC G4 and a matte black finish, the ultra-portable MacBook is a far cry from its predecessor, the iBook. The RAM is 512 MB DDR2, and the hard disk, 80 GB. A glossy screen enriches the viewing experience, but also makes it very reflective. The 13.3-inch display with a maximum resolution of 1280 x 800 is powered by Intel's GMA 950 integrated graphics. The optical drive is a slot-loading Super Drive DVD±RW. All ports are located on the left.

Connectivity options include USB 2.0, FireWire, audio in/out ports, and RJ-45. Wireless connectivity provided by the AirPort Extreme supports 802.11g. There is a mini-DVI port to connect a large-format display or a TV. There is, however, no expansion slot for PCMCIA or Express cards. A card reader, another standard on all PC laptops, is missing.

Featured here is the integrated iSight camera for videoconferencing; the cam delivers very good video quality. The MacBook comes with a great software bundle. All the usual utilities are there, plus the iLife 06 application suite, which lets you create and edit movies, manage photo albums, create your own music, and create Web pages.

The MacBook played our test video for 154 minutes-at par with other laptops.

For all you Mac fans out there, this is a great buy. As for Windows die-hards-give the MacBook a shot, and you just might not feel like going back!
