Hands on with the Apple Macbook

With the MacBook you’re getting a full fledged Mac machine: Core Duo processor — not Core Solo as some had expected — WXGA display, digital video out to power that 24-incher, Bluetooth, a slot loading DVD burner (depending on your model), the whole megillah. What you aren’t getting, however, is slightly more subtle. Yes, you’re not getting that 15.4-inch display or the ExpressCard slot (remember, the iBook before the MacBook didn’t have a PC Card slot, either), nor are you getting that fancy ATI Mobility Radeon X1600, but you’re also forgoing that notably larger MacBook Pro power brick, mechanical latches, and a dimmer (though less reflective) display.
