TIME reviews MacBook
TIME Magazine has taken its first look at Apple's 13-inch MacBook, touching on the notebook's price, non-Universal Mac software, and Boot Camp. The reviewer notes that the MacBook lacks various features offered by its more expensive sibling, the MacBook Pro, such as a backlit keyboard, the light-sensitive display, a dedicated graphics card, and an ExpressCard/34 expansion slot. Despite this, however, attention is brought to the fact that the MacBook shares most of the professional notebook's features, such as the built-in iSight camera, the Apple Remote, a break-away magnetic power connector, and wireless Bluetooth support. TIME found Apple's Boot Camp software to be a great success. "I even tested out MTV's Urge service with -- Jobs forgive me -- an iriver clix music player. It all worked together even more smoothly than it had done on my high-powered Dell desktop."
