Apple is a versatile brand and leads the mobile phone as well as the laptop and notebook industry. Apple is known for its unique notebooks. Apple Mac book is also one of the remarkable notebook brands, which was manufactured by apple in the year 2006. The manufacturing extended till the 2011 and than the other latest versions arrived. Before the Mac book was launched, apple manufactured the iBook series.
The Apple Mac book also replaced the 12 inch PowerBook notebook. Mac book was a low positioned device from apple. It was a decent but low priced product in the Mac book family. The Mac book Air and the amazing Apple Mac book Pro are the leading brand starts for Apple.
The first Apple Mac book was designed specifically for the educational use as well as the consumer market. Even though these days Apple has come up with much advanced machines but the simple Mac book was the most selling Macintosh in the history of Apple. The NDP Groups sales research department authenticated these figures in October 2008.
In the Mac book category, the medium ranged design of Mac book, single handedly topped the US sales charts. Mac book came with three different designs in its whole manufacturing era. The actual model lunched t the start came with a polycarbonate and a fiberglass coating. This model was launched after the ibook G4 version. The 2nd model of the Mac book was launched at the end of 2008, where Apple also launched its Mac book Pro, with a lookalike aluminum uni-body design.
The sales charts of the Mac book pro were low, since it lacked the Fire ware. The third model was launched in the January of the next year, 2009. This was actually the revisited version of the first models design. The fire ware was again not included in this model. By 2011, Mac book Air, almost completely replaced the Mac Book simple version. The sales were almost total suspended.
Only a few educational institutes bought those, but not the masses. Mack book will always be remembers as a strong initiator in the notebook world. It had a 13.3-inch LED backlit glossy widescreen. The LCD had an amazing resolution of 1280 × 800 pixels. Even though it was 2006 phone, it had an advanced speed of 2.4 GHz with Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The graphics were also pretty amazing.
The notebook had an Integrated Nvidia GeForce 9400M with 256 MB, which was equally shared with the main memory. In terms of communication features the Mac book was fully loaded. The Integrated AirPort Extreme 802.11a/b/g/draft-n (BCM4322 chipset) made it connectable to all wireless platforms. Gigabit Ethernet facility made it connectable to all LAN and WAN networks.
In 2006, it also had a Bluetooth 2.1 plus an EDR feature. It was a heavy device with a weight of exactly 2 KG. A 45-watt-hour removable lithium polymer battery gave it a minimum 3 hour backup time. It was such a convenient device of its time that laptop lovers would really love to buy a 2nd hand version of this device, as a startup these days.
