Apple's tenth generation MacBook is a 13'' laptop aimed at the average student and computer user. With major revisions from the 2006 version, this MacBook has picked up many notable features from the MacBook Pro, including a unibody design, a glass trackpad, and an LED-backlit display. It is lighter and more durable than the previous iteration of the MacBook due to the new unibody design. However, this means the battery is non-replaceable, but it does provide 7 hours of juice. Also new to this version of the MacBook is a glass Multi-Touch trackpad with gesture support. It's larger than the combined pad-and-button area on the old model and with greater versatility. The new MacBook uses the same Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics processor, which shares 256MB of RAM with the main memory, as both the previous version and the 13-inch and low-end 15-inch MacBook Pros.

There are also some changes to the array of ports on the side of the MacBook. The biggest change is that there's no longer a FireWire port.

  • 13.3-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen display
  • 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor with 3MB on-chip shared L2 cache
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory
  • 250GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard disk drive; optional 320GB or 500GB 5400-rpm drive
  • Mac OS X v10.6 Snow Leopard
  • Multi-Touch trackpad for precise cursor control; supports two-finger scrolling, pinch, rotate, swipe, three-finger swipe, four-finger swipe, tap, double-tap, and drag capabilities
  • Built-in iSight camera
  • Mini DisplayPort
