Fare thee well, ye olde MacBook.

A famous Beatle once stated, “all things must pass”. There comes a time when great things must settle down and move on. That time has come for one of the most successful computer models in history…the MacBook (not to be confused with the MacBook Pro). Yes. Today marks the official day when the MacBook has been discontinued. Farewell my old friend.

Now, the cheapest Mac notebook on the market is the amazing MacBook Air. Obviously, Apple see’s the MacBook Air as the future of their notebook line. The MacBook Air is truly a technical achievement, and starting at $999, it is more affordable than ever. Despite its current shortcomings (limited HD space, no optical drive…), the MacBook Air is a marvel. Oh yeah, HELLO THUNDERBOLT!! ┬áIf you don’t know what Thunderbolt is, read this article from Gizmodo.

Still, to me, nothing can replace the simplicity and convenience of the old MacBook…except the 13.3″ MacBook Pro ­čÖé

At the time of its release, the MacBook was, quite simply, a revolution not only for Apple, but for the notebook industry. ┬áLet’s face it, Mac OS X was awesome with a PPC processer, but with the Intel processor, the darn thing just soared. ┬áMy old MacBook (purchased in 2007) still runs circles around some of my friend’s newer Windows based computers. ┬áThe only flaw that I truly felt with my MacBook was the fact that its integrated video card was not that great. ┬áSure, not being able to play Portal on my MacBook sucked, but that’s what I have an Xbox for.

Let’s not be sad of that fact that the MacBook will no longer be around, let us all celebrate it. ┬áHere is to looking to the future…

Farewell ye olde MacBook.
