CNET claims Apple’s black MacBook is the most popular laptop on the planet. After my first semester on the go at college, I can see why. It’s proved to be outrageously helpful the majority of the time when you’re really busy and depend on your machine. Since I didn’t need to lug it around campus, most of the time it stayed peacefully sleeping in my dorm. It quickly found the campus intranet and I was online with far fewer problems that some had. It just works, and looks good doing it. Those looking for a trusty laptop for second semester, look here, if you can swing the extra green.
