Apple MacBook Out Does It's Recent Predecessors

Aug 18, 2008
Apple is constantly coming out with the newest technology including media players, mp3 players, and smart phones. One of their newest creations is the MacBook. This product specifically was made to replace the iBook G4 series, and was released in 2006. Since then there have been several revisions to the MacBook as well as several different "generations." This laptop is made especially for mac users obviously, but there are other people that have been PC users their entire lives and have bought into the Mac family. I'm not sure I would buy a mac only because I'm a PC girl at heart, but I just might reconsider it after all the hype Apple has received! The MacBook family comprises of several different versions. Thus far the newest and most updated MacBook was released in 2008 and uses a GM965 chip with Intel's x3100 graphics.

The following MacBooks are the different versions available to the consumers:

MacBook -
Consumer Notebook
13.3" screen with polycarbonate casings

MacBook Air -
13.3" wide screen LED display

Ultralight Notebook -
13.3" screen with aluminum casings

Professional Level Notebook -
15.4" or 17" screens with aluminum casings

Several different "options" are included with the Macs including iTunes, iWork, Customizations, iCal, iChat, etc. These products must be expensive if they offer all this right? Wrong! In fact, truth be told, if you go ahead and buy any of the Macs off Apple, then yes you will pay full price. But if you're like every other person, you will want to find the best price even if it doesn't come straight from the company that makes them. The best thing you can do is try places like EBay and Amazon. Hey listen, just because it's from EBay or Amazon or some other auction site, doesn't mean you are going to receive a cheap item. All this means is you will be saving yourself hundreds of dollars, and who doesn't LOVE to save money?!?

Looking at the MacBook on Apple and then comparing it to one found on EBay (which is brand new, in the box, everything included) the price is quite different. MacBook on Apple is about $1,099 and on Ebay the lowest price is around $500. Now that is something you absolutely cannot beat. Again, just because you buy it on Ebay doesn't mean its used. Now if you want to get it even cheaper, go ahead, buy it used or refurbished on Ebay. But if you are worrisome about the quality then get the "new still in box" one. Either way, your saving yourself a ton of money!
