When it comes to business laptops, they don’t come any better than an Apple MacBook. Although they have a reputation for being on the pricey side, the newly redesigned basic model is much more affordable, making it easier than ever before to own one of these nifty machines. Whether you are looking for business laptops, or just a machine for personal use, the all-new MacBook is definitely worth considering.
When checking out a MacBook the first thing you will notice is the new aesthetic. At just over an inch in depth, and sporting elegantly curved contours, the MacBook is not only space efficient, but also looks chic and stylish on any desk. If style is important to you when you’re considering a range of laptops, you can’t go wrong with this machine. However, despite the slender appearance and feather-like weight of only 4.7 pounds, the MacBook is surprisingly sturdy in construction. The casing is manufactured from a durable polycarbonate, designed to withstand frequent transportation and the general rigours of everyday use. Add to that a clever non-slip finish that keeps your MacBook exactly where it is placed, and you have a machine that is hard to better in terms of its structural design.
Take a quick look at the underside of the machine and you’ll see that Apple have done away with the idea of a removable lithium-polymer battery, choosing instead to integrate it into the enclosure of the MacBook. With the extra space needed for a removable battery no longer a concern, Apple have been able to increase the battery capacity, which will now squeeze out seven hours of use after one charge. However, despite the increased component integration, the ability to upgrade has not been sacrificed: removal of the under-casing reveals a simple, intuitive interior design perfect for adding more memory or increasing the size of the hard drive. Not all business laptops are upgradeable in this way, so if you see your business growing, it is worth considering whether your IT will need to grow with you.
The next thing to impress is the quality of the screen. The 13.3-inch LED-backlit display now comes in widescreen with 1280 by 800 resolution, radically improving the depth of colour, image detail and brightness when viewing documents, photos or videos. There are very few business laptops on the market at the moment that can match the MacBook for display quality.
The final thing that will grab your attention is the machine’s performance. Boasting a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card, 2GB of RAM memory and a 250GB hard drive as standard, the machine’s design flair is more than matched by it’s internal meat. The Macbook is also fitted with the revolutionary Multi-Touch trackpad, which ingeniously incorporates the two-button and cursor functions of a mouse into a single device. Whether you are searching for a home machine or looking for a new range of business laptops, the all-new MacBook should be at the front of the queue.
