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.

13.3" at 16x9 widescreen? For $1099. Thanks. I'll pass.

It's 16:10, actually. 1280x800 is what I have on this ocean liner of a Compaq. It's definitely enough to be comfortable, and the aspect is nice for video.

I'm glad Apple finally ditched the extremely frustrating 1024x768 ceiling. You can also finally have a higher external res than that on the built-in display. That's the biggest thing that's been keeping me away from the iBook line for so long. They've finally given their pro laptops an edge in video without crippling their consumer end.
