Apple 13-inch MacBook/2.1GHz
Essentially, this is the same 2.1GHz MacBook Apple introduced in February 2008 right down to its white plastic enclosure and FireWire ports--something Apple abandoned with the rest of its MacBook...
The 2.1GHz MacBook is a capable system, and the only Mac laptop you can buy for less than $1,000. (And unlike the unibody systems, it retains a FireWire port.) If you're on a budget, aren't tempted by the improved graphics in the newer MacBooks, or have a lot of FireWire peripherals, this laptop is a perfectly fine option.
