Yes, there will always be rumors of something new from Apple. But you need a notebook — an Apple notebook — now? Then the Apple MacBook is for you: It couples Apple-chic appeal with a reasonable price. The MacBook has everything a college student would need to complete everyday tasks. The built-in iSight Webcam and iChat instant messaging and videoconferencing software makes it easy to stay in touch with home, too. Weighing in at 5 pounds, the MacBook is not the lightest 13-inch notebook around, but it is light enough and small enough to tote across campus.
