Replacing both the 12-inch PowerBook G4 and the entire iBook G4 line, Apple's MacBooks deliver many of the same features as the higher-end MacBook Pro line -- including an Intel Core Duo processor and a built-in iSight camera -- in a 13-inch case with a glossy widescreen display. Like the Intel-based Mac mini, the MacBook line features an integrated Intel graphics processor that shares its memory with main RAM. This model sports an 80GB hard drive and a DVD-burning SuperDrive, as well as an eye-catching matte black finish.
