Apple Releases the MacBook

After waiting for months, Apple fans can finally open their wallets and dish out some cash towards Apple's new consumer portable, the MacBook.  Replacing the aging iBook, the new MacBook targets the fastly growing iPod market with a reasonably powered consumer widescreen notebook.


The new MacBook sports on all models an Intel Core Duo processor, combo or superdrive, 13.3" widescreen display with a 1280x800 resolution, 512 Mb of ram, and integrated Intel Graphics chip set (same as that in the Mac Mini).  In addition, the MacBook features an all magnetic latching sytem with no moving parts unlike that featured on the MacBook Pro.


The MacBook also is featured in a second color black ($1499 USD model only).  Continuing on with the line, the MacBook features integrated iSight and Front Row with remote as well as 802.11 b/g and bluetooth.


The MacBook is avaliable today at a baseline price of $1099 USD featuring a 1.83 Ghz Core Duo in white.  Black version starts at $1499 USD with a 2.0 Ghz Core Duo, 80 GB HDD and a Superdrive.
