A laptop combines the components, inputs, outputs and capabilities of a desktop computer, including the display screen, speakers, a keyboard, pointing devices (such as a touchpad or trackpad), a processor and memory into a single unit. Most 2016-era laptops also have integrated webcams and built-in microphones. The device can be powered either from a rechargeable battery or by mains electricity from an AC adapter. Laptops are diverse devices and specialised kinds, such as rugged notebooks for use in construction or military applications or convertible computers, have been optimized for specific uses. The hardware specifications, such as the processor speed and memory capacity significantly vary between different types, makes, and models. Portable computers, which later developed into modern laptops, were originally considered to be a small niche market, mostly for specialized field applications, such as in the military, for accountancy, or for travelling sales representatives. As portable computers became closer to the modern laptop, they became widely used for a variety of purposes.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laptop
The MacBook Pro (sometimes abbreviated MBP)1 is a line of Macintosh portable computers introduced in January 2006 by Apple Inc., now in its third generation. Replacing the PowerBook G4, the MacBook Pro was the second model to be announced in the Apple?Intel transition, after the iMac.It is the high-end model of the MacBook family and is currently produced with 13- and 15-inch screens.A 17-inch version was available for sale in April 2006. The first generation MacBook Pro appeared externally similar to the PowerBook G4, but used the Intel Core processors instead of PowerPC G4 chips.
The 15-inch model was introduced first, in January 2006; the 17-inch model followed in April.Both received several updates and Core 2 Duo processors later that year. The computer's second generation, known as the "unibody" model, has a more tapered design and a casing made from a single block of aluminum. It debuted in October 2008 as the 15-inch MacBook Pro and the 13-inch aluminum unibody MacBook. The following January brought the design to the 17-inch model, along with the built-in battery that joined the rest of the MacBook Pro line in June, during which Apple also absorbed the unibody 13" Macbook into the MacBook Pro line. Subsequent updates brought upgraded Intel Core i5 and i7 processors and introduced Intel's Thunderbolt technology.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacBook

Positioned as the low end of the MacBook family, below the premium ultra-portable MacBook Air and the powerful MacBook Pro,3 the MacBook was aimed at the consumer and education markets.4 It was the best-selling Macintosh ever.
For five months in 2008, it was the best-selling laptop of any brand in US retail stores.5 Collectively, the MacBook brand is the "world's top-selling line of premium laptops."6 There have been four separate designs of the MacBook.
The original model used a combination of polycarbonate and fiberglass casing which was modeled after the iBook G4.The second type was introduced in October 2008 alongside the 15-inch MacBook Pro; the MacBook shared the more expensive laptop's unibody aluminum casing, but omitted FireWire, which hurt sales.7not in citation given A third design, introduced in late 2009, had a polycarbonate unibody casing and no FireWire ports.Źródło: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MacBook.
