The final piece to Apple's notebook
puzzle is now in place. The company today officially unveiled a
slightly revamped entry-level MacBook (the update was actually leaked
over the weekend).
The latest polycarbonate white MacBook
now features a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo processor, NVIDIA GeForce 320M
integrated graphics solution, and a new 10-hour battery. The previous
model came with a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo processor, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
integrated graphics, an a 7-hour battery.
Other features like 2GB of DDR3 memory,
250GB hard drive, and 8x dual-layer SuperDrive remain unchanged.
This latest innards upgrade brings the
MacBook in line with the entry-level
13" MacBook Pro. It still, however, lacks the Pro model's
aluminum shell, backlit keyboard, Secure Digital slot, and Firewire
Despite the slight feature bump, the
latest MacBook is still priced at $999.
