MacBook (Late 2008): new and a little old…

For Apple, the revolution was not the first. The revolution after the return of Steve in native walls have become something ordinary and familiar, even overgrown with tradition – but this time, these traditions have been violated. The reasons for this violation it was possible to guess. Even guess it was not necessary: Steve himself explained everything. MacBook was the best selling Mac of om, and in the cheapest way possible. A new MacBook and was attractive and revolutionary: aviation aluminum alloy, Unibody technology, the chipset designed in conjunction with NVIDIA… But sell them for the price of a best-seller, the cheapest variant from the previous generation, would be foolish.

Therefore the cheapest option of the previous generation remained in the MacBook, it was even cheaper ($999 instead of 1099), and better: 8x Combo (DVD-ROM/CD-RW) was replaced by a 8x DL SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW). If he kept bestseller status is unknown, but at wholesale prices with special discounts for educational organizations (in exchange for tax benefits to the manufacturer) they went “Bang”.

But the other options are the MacBook was similar to aliens from another planet, “where the designers better.” It jobs from 1998, for another reason, but about the same designers.

About these aliens, we’ll talk…

This is the sixth part series about the MacBook, the previous part of the series here:

The first part: Operation iMac: iBook becomes the MacBook;
Second part: MacBook Core 2 and the seasons;
Third part: the First new era iPhone Mac (MacBook);
The fourth part: the Last years iPhone Mac: MacBook “SR”;
The fifth part: the Next model of MacBook “Early 2008 Penryn”.

24-inch LED Cinema Display

Special display for the individual model series laptops as “mouse pad”, sounds challenging. And at first glance is absolute nonsense. Displays once for all, obviously, profitable.

But, as with the ill-fated rug (from a joke, you of course know), this item was the highlight. The external optional device is integrated with the MacBook, MacBook Pro, and MacBook Air made the device even more attractive.

The display was good – brightness 330 CD/m, contrast 1000:1, maximum resolution up to 1920×1200, built-in iSight camera, speaker system, USB hub 2.0 with three connections, MagSafe… It was only compatible with Mac s, and is compatible with the new MacBook. It was his main task and meaning of existence.

The usual display connectors was too high for buildings with a revolutionary design. The thickness of the new MacBook and MacBook Pro was 0.95 inch (2.4 cm), and MacBook Air, in the most thick part of the body – 0.76 inch (1.9 cm). I don’t really understand what’s the real value of very fine buildings, but for the media and buyers this aspect was important, it was believed that it was “cool”.

Computers do not sell their technical quality, and even their design and PR. For PR did not mind, but go on a new and unknown display port is probably a little too…

The Mini DisplayPort was very compact, the height was less than the USB 2.0 connector, and the assurances of the Apple was a standard. The fate of the Apple Display Connector (ADC), display port developed by Apple, it has not been forgotten, and the tendency of companies to exaggerate was known, so the introduction of this standard has cost Apple too cheaply.

Mini Display Port really was not a creation of Apple. The port was developed by order of and under the control of the VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association), and was intended for use in the “compact devices: laptops, gadgets, etc.”

In addition to small size, Mini Display Port had a lot of technical advantages, so that this time Apple have not lied a single gram, and the choice was another folly.

Adapters for DVI and VGA offered in the online Apple store for $ 29, dual-link DVI for $ 99.

NVIDIA MacBook

In the model identifier MacBook5,1 used chipset developed by NVIDIA and Apple, 70% of the area of the chipset took the integrated graphics processor NVIDIA GeForce 9400M with 16 cores and performance is 5 times higher than the performance of Intel GMA X3100 (in real life – 2.5..6.2 times), the remaining 30% held by Intel Core 2 Duo “Penryn-3M” and serve his controllers.

The second level cache – 3 MB, clock frequency of frontal system bus 1066 MHz, with the base set all the options installed 2 gigabytes of RAM (PC3-8500 DDR3 SDRAM 1066 MHz). The graphics processor used 256 Megabytes of RAM for their needs.

Officially, the maximum amount of RAM is 4 Gigabytes. Informal, depending on the version of Mac OS X, from 6 to 8 GB. 8 GB consistently worked since Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard.

Screen with a diagonal of 13.3 inch (33.8 cm), led backlit, with a resolution of 1280×800 (standard).

The external monitor support resolution up to 2560×1600.

Increased glass trackpad without buttons (the entire surface) with the support of the extended set of 1-, 2-, 3 – and 4-finger gestures.

Interface with hard drives and SSD – SATA II (3GB/s).

8x DL SuperDrive (DVD±R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW).

A distinctive feature of the new MacBook had no Firewire support in the previous models supported FW400.

AirPort Extreme (802.11 a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR – built-in modem external and for an additional fee, Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T, two USB 2.0 ports and Mini DisplayPort.

The model was offered in two versions: with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz (P7350), with the disk 160 GB (5 400 rpm), no backlight keyboard, the price in 1299 dollars; and with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz (P8600) with the disk 250 GB (5 400 rpm), backlit keyboard, 1 for $ 599.

Online store offered a few hard and solid-state (SSD) drives, for a fee.

Compared to previous MacBook, the performance of the new MacBook even has decreased – not surprisingly,

The ceremony was attended by the “retro-variant”, for $ 999, the Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1 GHz (T8100), which in Geekbench 2 scored 2 827 points, in 64-bit – 3 201. He played the role of “Economy version”.

And NVIDIA MacBook can be considered the heirs of black and white “strong” variants, predecessors, and they are both inferior.

A variant with a 2.0 GHz inferior to even the economy version – 2 804 points in the 32-bit tests and 3 124 64-bit. Black and white he conceded with the devastating account.

Variant with 2.4 GHz 3 scored 276 points in the 32-bit tests and 3 629 64-bit.

White and black versions of the last model (2.4 GHz) 3 scored 182 points in 64-bit – 3 557.

But graphics performance has increased five times.

  7. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world igion called spiritualism

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
