MacBook Core 2 Duo

Apple today upgraded its MacBook line of consumer laptops to add Intel's newer Core 2 Duo mobile processor. The new computing architecture promises as much as a 25% increase in performance over the previous models, according to Apple VP Philip Schiller. The new lineup consists of two white models sporting 1.83GHz and 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo chips respectively, as well as a single, 2.0GHz black model. All 2.0GHz models now feature 1GB of memory, 80 or 120GB of hard disk storage (upgradeable to 200GB), and 6X, dual-layer Superdrives for recording DVDs. The new models begin at $1,099 and are available immediately from the online Apple Store.
