It replaced the iBook series and 12-inch PowerBook series of notebooks as a part of the Apple–Intel transition Positioned as the low end of the MacBook family, the Apple MacBook was aimed at the consumer and education markets.[3] t was the best-selling Macintosh in history, and according to the sales-research organization NPD Groupin October 2008, the mid-range model of the MacBook was the single best-selling laptop of any brand in U.S. retail stores for the preceding five months.[4]

  3. There have been three separate designs of the MacBook: the original model used a combination of polycarbonate and fiberglass casing that was modeled after the iBook G4. The second type, introduced in October 2008 alongside the 15-inch MacBook Pro, used a similar unibody aluminum casing to the 15-inch Pro, and was updated and rebranded as the 13-inch MacBookProat the 2009 Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2009.[5]A third design, introduced in October 2009, used a unibody polycarbonate shell as aluminium is now reserved for the higher-end MacBook Pro. On July 20, 2011, the MacBook was quietly discontinued for consumer purchase in favor of the new MacBook Air.[6] Apple continued to sell the MacBook to educational institutions until February2012.

  4. Ports The ports are all on the left edge; on early models, from front to back, they are: Kensington Security Slot, audio out, audio in, two USB 2.0 ports, FireWire 400, mini-DVI, Gigabit Ethernet, MagSafe power connector. The front edge features a short line-shaped power light and a round black infrared receiver, for Apple Remote; the right edge features only the disc slot.

  5. User serviceability The polycarbonate Intel MacBook is easier for users to fix or upgrade than its predecessor. Where the iBook required substantial disassembly to access most internal components, including removal of the keyboard and RAM,[12] users need only to remove the polycarbonate MacBook's outer shell to access almost any interior component. Replacing the hard drive and memory requires merely the removal of the battery, and Apple provides doit-yourself manuals for these tasks.[13] -

  6. Quality problems Some early polycarbonate MacBook models suffered from random shutdowns; Apple released a firmware update to resolve these random shutdowns.[14] There were also cases reported of discolored or chipping palmrests. There were many instances of the edges of the palm rest and screen bezel splitting and thin strips peeling off. In such cases, Apple asked affected owners to contact AppleCare.[15] There were problems with batteries on some models from 2007 not being read by the MacBook. This is caused by a logicboard fault and not a fault with the battery. In February 2010, Apple announced a warranty extension and recall for MacBooks bought between 2006–2007 for hard drive issues. This is caused by heat and other problems.[16]
