Apple refreshed their MacBook overnight, providing consumers with the latest and greatest MacBook to date. The MacBook was updated without warning, although rumours spread last week of a possible refresh coming soon, which has proven to be true.
The new MacBook features an LED-backlit, 13.3-inch, 1280 x 800 pixel resolution, glossy widescreen display. The new LED screen is greener than ever, free of harmful toxins such as mercury and is made of arsenic-free glass.
The MacBook comes equipped with a specially-made for Apple, NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor, which offers up to 1.8x performance boost over previous generations MacBook"s. The new NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor will see greater performance in games like Doom and Call of Duty 4, when compared with previous MacBook"s with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processors.
Its built-in, non-removal battery, offers up to 10 hours per charge, and up to 1000 recharges in its lifetime. With the new energy-efficient NVIDIA graphics processor and the LED-backlit screen, consumers will see improved performance and longer lasting battery life than previous MacBook"s. That"s approximately five years of typical use; lasting nearly three times longer than previous MacBook"s.
The refreshed MacBook offers a glass multi-touch trackpad, allowing for gestures, including pinch, swipe, and rotate with just your finger-tips. Each MacBook also comes with an iSight camera, so you can video chat with friends and family anywhere in the world.
MacBook comes standard with MagSafe power adapter, which uses a magnetic connection to power the device. It also comes with gigabit ethernet, mini displayport - supporting Apple LED Cinema Display, VGA, DVI and HDMI connections -, two USB 2.0 ports, audio in/out, and a kensington lock slot. The other side offers a CD and DVD burner.
