Time: Dell, HP 'Should Be Very Worried' About New MacBook

Time magazineis favorable review of the new MacBook concludes by stating: "You get a computer that runs both Mac OS X and Windows XP today, and even appears to meet the minimum requirements for Vista once it gets here. Dell and HP should be very worried indeed."

While the review notes some drawbacks to the new laptop, such as the fact that users will have to get rid of the OEM RAM if they want to upgrade it to 1GB later, the ability to run Windows XP via Boot Camp was a big plus. Writer Wilson Rothman noted: "The MacBook is a powerful and affordable option, especially for people who are uncertain about their Windows future. The next version, Vista, might be a success, but with a MacBook you can hedge your bet."
