Apple MacBooks

Apple MacBook Black
As you may or may not know, Apple has rolled out their iBook replacement, the Apple MacBook, which is based on an Intel CPU. This replaces the iBook series (both the 12-inch and 14-inch), as well as the 12-inch PowerBook. It starts at $1099 US, and surprisingly, it is an Intel Core Duo – that is is, it’s a dual-core CPU – the equivalent of having two CPUs inside of your machine.

They are going with only one display for the MacBook, a “glossy” 13.3-inch widescreen display. It’s also back to being available in more than one color – black or white.

It’s a very powerful machine – even the $1099 model has a 1.83GHz Dual Core CPU. Outside of Apple’s XServers and their PowerMacs (towers), their Intel transition is almost complete, ahead of schedule. These other two series will probably be switched to Intel this fall.
