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.

    10-hour with Flash...

    It's interesting to note that this cool Mac has twice the clock of and iPad, a big HD, more RAM a bigger screen and an astounding 10-hour battery life.... and it also supports Adobe Flash! Seems that all this buzz by Apple over Flash and its flaws is pointless. People who will buy this Mac will be able to use the all the Internet without big "Question Marks" in web pages...

    Polycarbonate Bong!

    It seems that the kids in Cupertino are still huffing from the polycarbonate bong that has them believing that an entry level laptop should cost a grand. Ridiculous!

    Firewire

    If only it had Firewire or USB3. Having only USB2 for I/O a pretty severe weakness.

    Re: Firewire

    What? They took firewire out AGAIN!

    And, to Jeronimo2000

    Right, because there's so many USB3 devices around.


    So, when Apple adds USB and removes Serial, or adds Mini DisplayPort and removes DVI, they're 'moving forward' and thinking ahead.

    But when they leave an obvious upgrade out, it's not a big deal because there's no devices.

    It's called future-protecting your purchase. Or is the "Macs last sooooo much longer than PCs" nice, but not that it helps if you're trying to use newer technology.

    If you don't like it...

    Then don't buy it. Why do people ALWAYS have to complain about something.
