The Macbook has a good size keyboard with an optical drive. It also has 2 USB ports, with firewire drive. The MacBook isn't so heavy and is very portable. It is small, has a reasonable price, and is easy to carry around. If you buy the white Macbook make sure to take care of it because it will easily get dirty like mine. The black Macbook has more ram and space standard and it costs more, but the black Macbook would be good.
SO overall its a very good computer.
