With the new four-finger swipe gesture, access Expose modes and toggle between open applications. And MacBook is greener than ever: It’s highly recyclable and more energy efficient. At just 0.95 inch thin and 4.5 pounds,2 MacBook is truly the next generation of notebooks. 1Testing conducted by Apple in October 2008 using preproduction 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo–based MacBook units with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. MacBook systems with 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo and Intel GMA X3100 were shipping units. MacBook continuously monitors system thermal and power conditions, and may adjust processor speed as needed to maintain optimal system operation. 2Actual weight varies by configuration and manufacturing process. 31GB = 1 billion bytes; actual formatted capacity less.77% (12)
Redesigned with a precision unibody enclosure crafted from a single block of aluminum, the MacBook is thinner and lighter than its predecessor as well as stronger and more durable. But Apple didn't stop innovating with the body's design. The MacBook also includes a new 13.3-inch, LED-backlit glass display (instead of an LCD panel) and a glass trackpad that doesn't include a button (for larger tracking area) and features includes Apple's Multi-Touch technology.
The redesigned MacBook (see larger version).
Under the hood, the MacBook is powered by a powerful 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (with 3 MB L2 cache and 1066 MHz front-side bus), which runs applications faster and more efficiently as well as helps to reduce power requirements and save on battery life. And the MacBook features the integrated NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor, which delivers outstanding 3D game play with up to five times faster graphics performance than the previous generation.
It's pre-loaded with Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system, which enables easy backup of your most important data via Time Machine, a redesigned desktop that helps eliminate clutter. It also comes with the iLife '08 suite of applications--including iPhoto, iMovie, Garageband, and iTunes--and the newest version of the fast-loading Safari web browser. Other hardware features include a 160 GB hard drive, 2 GB of installed RAM (which can be upgraded to 4 GB), an 8x combo Superdrive (for burning dual-layer DVDs as well as CDs), built-in Gigabit Ethernet for high-speed networking, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR (Enhanced Data Rate), and Mini DisplayPort video output (for DVI and VGA connections).
The New MacBook Design
Traditionally notebooks are made from multiple parts. With the new MacBook all of those parts with just one part--the breakthrough unibody enclosure. Every MacBook starts its life as a single block of aluminum, which is precisely machined into the basic unibody design. Another pass and the unibody takes shape. Another, and the integrated keyboard emerges. When you pick up a new MacBook you immediately notice the entire enclosure is thinner and lighter. And it feels strong and durable--perfect for life inside (and outside) your briefcase or backpack.
The standard aluminum electro-static trackpad has been replaced with a new glass Multi-Touch trackpad, which provides 40 percent more tracking area than before. Use two fingers to scroll up and down a page. Pinch to zoom in and out. Rotate an image with your fingertips. Swipe with three fingers to flip through your photo libraries. Swipe with four fingers to show your desktop, view all open windows, or switch applications. The entire trackpad surface is also a button, allowing you to both track and click virtually anywhere on the trackpad. And you can easily enable multiple virtual buttons in software, such as right-clicking.
The keyboard has also been improved, with the rigid aluminum keyboard webbing cut precisely to hold the keys, which are curved to perfectly fit fingers.
The 13.3-inch display is made of edge-to-edge, uninterrupted glass for a smooth, seamless surface and features LED backlighting for brilliant instant-on performance that uses up to 30 percent less energy than its predecessor. The ultra-thin displays provide crisp images and vivid colors which are ideal for viewing photos and movies
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor
Experience improved energy efficiency, expanded wireless connectivity, and amazing battery life with the 2.0 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, which has a super-fast 1066 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and a large 3 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)
The new hafnium-infused circuitry--which reduces electrical current leakage in transistors--conserves even more energy, giving you more time away from the wall outlet. With 3 MB of shared L2 cache, data and instructions can be kept close to the two processor cores, greatly increasing performance and allowing the entire system to work more efficiently. And, because the processor cores share the L2 cache, either can use the entire amount if the other happens to be idle.
Video Processing & Output
The new MacBook uses a graphics processor that economizes space without sacrificing battery life. The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M is great for gaming, providing up to a 5x performance boost. Enjoy faster, smoother, more responsive gameplay as you power your way through the 3D environments of Quake, Call of Duty, and Spore. The 9400M graphics processor shares 256 MB of DDR3 SDRAM with main memory.
The MacBook includes a next generation Mini DisplayPort, which delivers a pure digital signal that can drive up to a 30-inch widescreen display. The Mini DisplayPort is ultra-compact at just 10 percent the size of a full DVI connector, and is compatible with Apple's 24-inch Cinema Display. Adapters are also available for using VGA, DVI/HDMI and Dual-Link DVI displays
Hard Drive and Memory
The 160 GB Serial-ATA (SATA) hard drive (5400 RPM) quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer of data--akin to FireWire and USB 2.0. The 2 GB of PC3-8500 DDR3 RAM (two SO-DIMMs of 1024 MB) has an industry-leading 1066 MHz speed, and the RAM capacity can be increased to 4 GB.
The built-in 802.11n wireless networking provides up to five times the performance and twice the range of 802.11g, but it's also backward-compatible with 802.11a/b/g routers, enabling you to communicate with the a wide variety of Wi-Fi resources. It works seamlessly with the new AirPort Extreme with 802.11n. Use the built-in Bluetooth wireless technology to connect to your PDA or cell phone, synchronize addresses, or download pictures from your cell phone. You can also use a wireless headset for iChat audio chats and VoIP calls as well as quickly share files with a colleague.
Video Conferencing with Built-in iSight
Artfully placed in the glass display is an iSight camera, which enables easy video conferencing as well as allows you to snap pictures of yourself and create video podcasts. Using the iChat AV application, video conferencing is integrated into your iChat buddy list, so initiating a video conference is a breeze. iChat also lets you hold audio chats with up to 10 people and provides high-quality audio compression and full-duplex sound so conversation can flow naturally. For video podcasting, you can record a short clip using the iSight camera, then use iWeb to create a video blog entry or post your GarageBand-recorded podcast.

I think it may be fair to say that the C3 is a somewhat controversial camera. Everybody will acknowledge that it had an impressive production run - but most will deride it as being "clumsy" and outdated even in its own time. On the other hand there are those who swear it has an excellent lens and is a great camera. Having been fiddling around with this late model (1959) Argus C3, it's been on my mind that maybe it's time to really look at the camera and reassess its standing in photographic history. I have no nostalgia for the thing. It was out of production for well over a decade before I was born. I've had five of them, and gave most away to friends. I don't buy that the lens is that great, the Cintar was of variable quality but even the "good" ones are only OK at best. The bad ones are well, bad. They all suffer from some degree of coma and chromatic aberration. They will give good results on B&W, assuming you don't make huge prints (which it was never intended for anyway) but it has difficulty in my opinion when it comes to rendering color. Noticeable CA, odd color rendition, soft contrast. The shutter is a Rube Goldberg-esque affair that wasn't accurate even when new (although if you take the time to properly adjust it it can be fairly accurate ) - and the 1/300 top speed was more or less a marketing hoax. In tests the 1/300 setting produced an actual performance of 1/150 (according to Consumer Reports, if my memory serves me correctly) - other sources apparently managed to get 1/200 out of it. Strangely Argus never did the honourable thing and relabel the dial to be more accurate. Then the various other foibles of the design such as the tiny viewfinder, the afterthought rangefinder coupling, the under-engineered film transport - etc. Do these things make the camera bad though? No not really. Indeed when it was introduced in 1939 it was on the cutting edge. Having rangefinder coupled focusing was a big deal back then - and having flash synchronization was still a novelty! Heck Leica didn't offer flash synchronization until after WWII. Not to mention that at that time things like knob winds and separate RF windows were the order of the day. What made me reconsider the C3 in terms of its "outdatedness" was I happened across a 1959 issue of Camera 35. In it they have a list of most of the 35mm cameras available in the U.S. at the time. Two things struck me. First was the number of behind the lens leaf shutter rangefinders that were available. So far as I know, the Argus C of 1938 was the first of this breed of camera - a fact that seems to be never mentioned. I may be wrong on this point but I would be happy to be corrected if that is the case. The C3 may have been the progenitor of such great cameras as the Aires V, Olympus Ace, and Regula IIIc. Another point that struck me was that the Leica IIIg was on the list. You hear so often that the C3 was so outdated by the 1960s. Ususally when I think of it - I tend to compare the C3 in my mind to the cutting edge, things like the Pentax Spotmatic and Topcon Super D were available at the same time as the C3! It's almost mind boggling to think the world had moved on to SLRs with TTL metering, yet photoshops could still have brand spanking new C3s on the shelves alongside them! Thinking along that line - it's easy to dismiss the C3 as a silly camera way beyond its prime with little merit. But when I saw the Leica IIIg on the list, I began to see the whole thing from a different point of view. The Leica III series was introduced in 1933. The IIIg was the last III and it was discontinued in 1960. That's a production run of 27 years. The Argus C3 was introduced in 1939 and discontinued in 1966. That too is a production run of 27 years. The IIIg and the C3 both still had knob winds and separate viewfinders in 1960. Leica was good enough to give the IIIg a larger viewfinder though, but that aside both the Argus and Leica were "outdated" in a few of the same ways. And when I studied the other makes and models on the list I began to see the C3 was not so trivial as it is often portrayed to be in retrospect. Long in tooth yes, but outdated, no. Plus unlike the Leica IIIg, the Argus had the excuse of price for it's old fashioned features. Costing a mere $39 it was one of the cheapest 35mm cameras you could get in the U.S. from any country. If you were willing to spend just $10 more though you opened the door to a world of Japanese made cameras with lever wind and faster lenses. But you couldn't get another interchangeable lens camera for under $79. Both the Exa and Olympus Ace being the next cheapest options for lens interchangeability. And besides, if knob wind and a separate viewfinder were acceptable on a $200 camera, they probably didn't seem too bad on a $39 one. I think the C3 was not quite as trivial towards the end of its run as iMorning is Dawning And Peer Gynt's Moon Is Yawning
For all my friends who taught me the ditty they learned at Lincoln High School in Brooklyn NY. They would sing to Grieg's tune: "Morning is dawning, While Peer Gynt is yawning, and Grieg is composing this song... It was an easy way to remember Edvard Grieg's musical suits for Ibsen's play "Peer Gynt," a five-act play in verse by the Norwegian dramatist Henrik Ibsen. I can still hum it, and even sing it;))) I didn't take Music Appreciation courses until College... Ibsen asked Edvard Grieg to compose incidental music for the play. Grieg composed a score that plays approximately ninety minutes. Grieg extracted two suites of four pieces each from the incidental music (Opus 46 and Opus 55), which became very popular as concert music. Two of the sung parts of the incidental music ended up in these suites (the famous In the Hall of the Mountain King in the 1st suite with the vocal parts omitted, and the last part of 2nd suite, Solveig's Song, the solo part now played by violin rather than sung, though the vocal version is sometimes substituted). (Originally, the second suite had a fifth number, The Dance of the Mountain King's Daughter, but Grieg withdrew it.) Grieg himself declared that it was easier to make music "out of his own head" than strictly following suggestions made by Ibsen. For instance, Ibsen wanted music that would characterize the "international" friends in the fourth act, by melding the said national anthems (Norwegian, Swedish, German, French and English). Reportedly, Grieg was not in the right mood for this task. The music of these suites, especially Morning Mood starting the first suite, In the Hall of the Mountain King, and the string lament Ase's Death later reappeared in numerous arrangements, soundtracks, etc. The moon in the pre-dawn sky Test Shoot #3 of a Kodak EasyShare Z915 10x optical zoom demo camera on clearance sale at Target. Exposure 0.008 sec (1/125) Aperture f/4.8 Focal Length 62 mm That's the max focal length. ISO Speed 400 100_0109 Strange what pops into my head: A synopsis of Act V of Ibsen's "Peer Gynt" Finally, on his way home as an old man, he is shipwrecked. Among those on board, he meets the Strange Passenger, considered by some[by whom?] scholars to be the ghost of Lord Byron. The Strange Passenger wants to make use of Peer's corpse to find out where dreams have their seat. This passenger scares Peer out of his wits. He lands on shore bereft of all of his possessions, a pitiful and grumpy old man. Back home in Norway, Peer Gynt attends a peasant funeral, and an auction, where he offers for sale everything from his earlier life. The auction takes place at the very farm where the wedding once was held. Peer stumbles along, and is confronted with all that he didn't do, his unsung songs, his unmade works, his unwept tears, and his questions that were never asked. His mother comes back and claims that her deathbed went awry. He didn't lead her to heaven with his ramblings. Peer escapes and is confronted with the Button-moulder, who maintains that Peer's soul must be melted down with other faulty goods unless he can explain when and where in life he has been "himself." Peer protests. He has been only that, and nothing else. Then he meets the troll king, who states that he has been a troll, not a man, most of his life. The moulder comes along and says that he has to come up with something if he is not to be melted down. Peer looks for a priest to confess his sins, and a character named the Lean One (who is probably the Devil), turns up. He believes Peer cannot be accounted a real sinner who can be sent to hell. He has not done anything serious. Peer despairs in the end, understanding that his life is forfeited. He understands he is nothing. But at the same moment, Solveig starts to sing — the cabin he himself built, is close at hand, but he dares not enter. The Boyg in him tells him "around." The moulder shows up and demands a list of sins, but Peer has none to give, unless Solveig can vouch for him. Then he breaks through to her, asking her for his sins. But she answers: "You have not sinned at all, my dearest boy." Peer does not understand — he believes himself lost. Then he asks her: "Where has Peer Gynt been since we last met? Where was I as the one I should have been, whole and true, with the mark of God on my brow?" She answers; "In my faith, in my hope, in my love." Peer screams and calls her mother, and hides himself in her lap. Solveig sings her lullaby for him, and we might presume he dies in this last scene of the play, although there are no stage directions or dialogue to indicate that he actually does. Behind the corner, the button-moulder, who is sent by God, still waits, with the words: "Peer, we shall meet at the last cross-roads, and then we shall see if. .. I'll say no more."
