Plastic Macbook Here to Stay After Refresh
The beloved polycarbonate Macbook is in line for a refresh of design to make it slimmer and lighter along with an update to the internals as well reports AppleInsider. This comes shortly after the addition of the 13" Aluminum unibody Macbook Pro released in June.
Since the release of the 13" Macbook Pro the entry level 13" Plastic Macbook has looked oddly out of place next to sexy aluminum siblings leading to questions about it's possible future with many wondering if it is going keep being produced.
Apple intends to keep the Macbook as a sub $1000 entry level laptop after refreshing it to be more 2010 and less 2006 (the last time it had a visual update). The 13" plastic Macbook has worked its way to the #2 seller of all Apple computers behind the iMac recently most likely due to the good performance (Apple has silently upgraded it not once but twice) for less money.
Barclays Capital analyst Ben Reitzes believes that Apple will inroduce multiple models at multiple price points after the refresh
We [...] believe the MacBook line needs to be revamped (there is only one MacBook available now, an old white model) and that we could see a lower priced line soon, positioned below the new MacBook Pro models,

I have never been to an apple store. I saw the white macbook on youtube and it was love at first sight. It is a very high quality machine when i got it off ebay.1.83 ghz and 60 gb hd glossy screen just loved it but the sound of the dvd drive bothered me then again all macs drives sound cheap.
