Date-Focused Note Taking

Apple Quietly Updates the Macbook with a Faster Processor and Longer Battery Life

As we expected last week, Apple has updated the white Macbook and, just like many insiders were claiming, it’s a rather minor update focused on bumping the processor from 2.26 to 2.4 GHz and giving it longer battery life.

“The new MacBook now has a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 2GB of memory. The notebook has a 250GB hard drive and boasts battery-life of 10 hours, up from the seven hour battery of the previous model. The MacBook is also now using the NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics card, the newest mobile card from the company.”


Available here at the same price tag of $999, I think it’s a good time to pick up a Macbook.
