Apple introduced this magnificent laptop apple macbook on October 14, 2008, & produced them until June 8, 2009. Và it was one of Apple’s best notebooks ever. It had a fantastic keyboard, and many comfy extras that today’s skinny laptop apple macbook owners can only dream about, from a battery indicator light khổng lồ an almost hot-swappable hard drive (or SSD).

It’s so good that it’s still viable today as a daily driver, with the added bonus that its weight will help keep you fit during lockdown. How vì I know? Because I have one right here, và I use it for music recording and production. I’m also using it to write this article. I thought, as my last post for Cult of Mac, that I’d review the 2008 unibody laptop apple macbook as if it were new. Let’s go.

Twelve years is an absurdly long life for a laptop. I wonder if today’s models will last as long. One of the main reasons this particular unit lasted as long as it has — used over the years by several owners, và left to lớn hibernate for a few years after that — is that it can be easily repaired and upgraded. But I’ll get into that in a moment, because I’ve done quite a few upgrades over the years.

First, let’s see the specs:

2.4GHz Intel chip core 2 Duo4GB 1067 MHz DDR3 RAMNvidia GeForce 9400M with 256MB13.3-inch LCD, 1,280 by 800 display

The most recent OS possible khổng lồ run on this machine is OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan, which is limiting in terms of the software you can run (no xúc tích và ngắn gọn Pro X). However, it’s no hindrance in everyday use. It also means that the OS is called OS X, not macOS, which is nice.

It’s not all great on the hardware front, though. RAM is officially capped at 4GB (although you can actually add more with no problems), và the screen is non-Retina. In practice, though, this makes little difference. And there’s no SD thẻ slot.

If you xuất hiện up this MacBook, it’s surprising how much space there is inside. I mean, components are packed in there, but nowhere near as packed as a modern MacBook.

Think of this as a homemade cheese sandwich, on fluffy white sourdough bread, & a few loose leaves of lettuce perched on the crumbling cheese. In comparison, the modern Mac is a pastrami sandwich from a thủ đô new york street deli, packed with far too much meat, and with no space left for even a drop of mustard.

All this means that you can swap out the parts that usually go bad over time, và keep the computer in tip-top condition. It’s even easy to vì your own trackpad repairs. Và if you can’t repair it, you can buy a new unit to lớn swap in.
