White MacBook Gets Bigger HDD, Faster CPU, RAM

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 2 comments

Apple has quietly updated the specs for the white MacBook, making the machine faster than the entry-level, unibody MacBook.

When the new MacBooks came out, the white MacBook’s price was dropped to $999. Those itching for a Mac and willing to compromise a little here and there on specs could bag themselves the cheapest Apple laptop on offer.

Today Apple upgraded the lower-end white MacBook with a faster processor, faster RAM and more space. The $999 Apple notebook now comes with 160 GB hard drive, a 2.13 GHz processor and 2 GB of 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, improving on the previous specs of a 120 GB HDD, 2 GB of 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM and a 2 GHz processor.

Unibody users still have the advantage of a nicer, stronger, lighter design, DDR3 and the ability to go from HDD to SSD. The upgrade to the white MacBook fuels speculation that Apple will soon update the unibody MacBooks. Surely they can’t leave the entry-level unibody MacBook and its 2 GHz processor alone for long?

    yup... they've ran out of 667MHz DDR2 and 120GB 1200rpm drives... Poor Steve - he must be crying out loud...
