Macbook 13-inch (Core 2 Duo T7200): Faster Macbook at the Same Price

Apple has a knack for making a good thing even better. The 13-inch was already a crowd pleaser. The latest version moves to a 2.0 GHz processor, adding a larger (80GB) hard drive and more RAM (1GB) while keeping the price in check. (Still, you'll want to add another gig of RAM, which at $175 doesn't come cheap.) It doesn't include the new and faster Intel chipset (aka Santa Rosa) that the MacBook Pros offer, but that won't detract from your experience.

The screen is suitable for novice video and photo editors, as is the iLife '06 suite. The MacBook has a sweet keyboard and comes with two USB ports (it could use still more), plus a FireWire port and DVI-I Video out. You even get draft 802.11n wireless support. Battery-wise, I got a healthy 2 hours 37 minutes playing a DVD movie. The main drawback is that you can't upgradc the DVD/CD-RW drive to a DVD burner.

This laptop is not a compelling upgrade if you already have a MacBook, but it's a good start for first-time buyers.
