Apple Apple has released the long-awaited and seriously overdue replacement for its iBook consumer laptop product line. Dubbed the MacBook, it comes with an Intel Core Duo processor (1.83 or 2.0Ghz), 13.3" widescreen display, 512MB RAM, and an Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics card. It comes in white and black. In the US, you'll pay $1099 for the cheapest model, in the UK GBP 749, and on Europe's mainland EUR 1079 (mainland price taken from Apple Germany, may differ per country). Update: Between all the MacBook talk, Apple also upgraded its MacBook Pro product line. Besides a minor speed bump, Apple added, as a free option, the glossy screen stuff.

Nice - but not the Black Model

OK - so the black model is a little expensive - Sorry Apple, you won't be getting my extra 150.00 for black (even though it looks cool).

But, for the same amount of money, you could up your hard drive to 100 GB SATA and 1 GB of RAM on the 2.0 GHz white Mac Book (for about 24 dollars more).

That is a pretty good price point for that technology - 1 GB of RAM and 100 GB hard drive on a 13" widescreen, glossy screen, and superdrive - I will be special ordering my version tonight when I get home!!!
