Apple makes white MacBook refresh official
As hinted earlier, Apple has updated the plastic MacBook with its first update since its redesign. The new version has the same 10-hour battery as the 13-inch MacBook Pro and also inherits its faster GeForce 320M integrated graphics. A faster 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo (up from 2.26GHz) represents its other major change.
The single configuration on offer continues to cost $999 and includes 2GB of RAM versus the 4GB of the same-size MacBook Pro, a 250GB hard drive and an 8X dual-layer SuperDrive. Apple is making the new MacBook available immediately and ships it in 24 hours from the online Apple Store.
