MacBook:The best one among the brlliant Notebooks.

A Macbook is one of the laptops which is being conquring the Indian markets.The first sight noteable features which my eyes noted in a Macbook is,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 by 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.It  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 gameplay. 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.it is having 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.It is having a 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,and itsThe entire trackpad is the button, so you can click anywhere on the touch-friendly glass surface. Not having a separate button also makes for a larger trackpad surface, giving your fingers more room to move, click and gesture. And because the trackpad 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 trackpad or simply press with two fingers.MacBooks 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.It has a uilt-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.

It has cleverly integrated — almost hidden — at the top of the MacBook display is an i Sight 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.
