The weight factor is due to the aluminum lining that has been given to the Macbook.

The LCD panel also has a webcam above it which captures clear images through it. The webcam can be called as picture perfect due to the resolution power of 1280 x 800 pixels.
The key board design of the Macbook is also unique and adds zeal to its looks; the keyboard also gives a responsive feel while it is being used. This can term as an added bonus to the comfort factor of the Macbook, so this wont be an over statement to say that the key board in Macbook is one of the best that we have used till date. The touchpad also gives right balance of smoothness and texture.

The features are the best part of the Mac; it comes with USB 2.0 port and a FireWire 400 port, a convenient slot for the lock facilities and audio input with headset jack.
The CD burning facility of the Mac is also a step ahead with the competitors, the CD burner comes with 24x combo drive or a double layered super drive of 8x, so with Mac burning CDs is never a problem and is fast and convenient.

The Macbook comes with the options of standard 2.1 GHz and 2.4GHz which ranges in the memory and RAM contexts. The Macbook comes with facility of Bluetooth 2.0 along with enhanced data rate facility.
Comparisons are a part of life and Mac would have to face comparison with windows vista or windows XP. Once you begin using the Mac you kind of get addicted to it. Mac offers various customization options and superb features that might leave windows far behind. Mac can be termed as a mystic innovation. The feature like the dashboard application allows the widget use and makes work simpler. Unlike the earlier windows options here the dashboards hide the sidebar and the widgets can be easily hidden or restored with a single button.
The start bar is absent in the Mac which is again different from windows but the dock finishes the functionality. Any minimized program gets stored in the dock forever
Net surfing in the Mac is a pleasurable option and lot difference can be noticed due to the fact that the alignment in Mac is quite uniform whereas in windows it is quite dull and uninteresting. Websites give perfect looks in Mac much better than in windows vistas or the windows XP.
Mac scores over windows in multimedia too, the iTunes software lets us creates the kind of playlist that we need to make. So Mac was able to fulfill our needs in the audio department too as it allows you to prepare own customization. The search engine also worked beyond our imagination and it was exactly what we
expected from it. Sites were easily searched on various methods and it became easier for the search engine to perform work. Searching the websites with the WiFi network worked swiftly, Mac is swift in working easy to use so I would prefer working on it than windows XP or vista.
It is a far more secure option than windows vista and even lot different with easing conditions to work upon. The price range is quite high and that would be the doubting factor on its success.
