28. The MacBook
Apple's latest ultraportable laptop (shown in Figure 7) is the MacBook. At 13 inches wide and 1 inch thick, it weighs a little over five pounds. Feature-wise, though, it's a heavyweight champion, with an Intel Core Duo processor, a glossy wide-screen display, and a built-in iSight camera. Even the MagSafe power supply is remarkable, with a connector that attaches snugly to the side of the MacBook by means of a magnetic sealbut that also detaches easily, so your Mac doesn't get yanked off the desk when some buffoon trips over the cord.

Like all the other new Macs, it also does Windows. Starting at $1099, it's a highly portable, affordable machine that doesn't skimp on power and functionality. If you value performance and portability, the MacBook is worth switching for.
