New MackBooks! Hello, Aluminum.
Apple today released their new lineup of MacBooks - and they're aluminum. At the bottom of the lineup is the Intel Core 2 Duo 2.1 GHz white MacBook, which is still polycarbonate (plastic
). The previous black MacBook pricepoint ($1299 and $1599) now have an aluminum MacBook (still 13.3 inches) with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz and 2.4 GHz, respectively.
Both the upper models come with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card, which gives you a decent boost in graphics processing over the previous black MacBooks. Turns out that "brick" case rumor
was true - the body of the MacBooks are formed from a single piece of aluminum.
The MacBooks will also now have the new glass MultiTouch trackpads which allow for gestures within apps, and also is
the mouse button - so you just tap to click.
