Apple Updates Entry Level MacBook


The morning of May 27, 2009 the folks at Apple quietly unveiled an updated MacBook. The entry-level one that goes for US$999. What did they update?

  • CPU: 2.0GHz –> 2.13GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
  • RAM: 2GB 600MHz –> 2GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM
  • Hard Disk: 120GB –> 160GB 2.5″ 5400RPM SATA

The graphics subsystem, which is NVIDIA’s GeForce 9400M, didn’t change. This updated entry-level MacBook still goes for $999. I like it. Now make a black one too.

For the ultimate budget shopper. You can knock off $100 and get the “older” 2.0GHz version for just $889.00.
