Apple Updates Macbooks

Figures. Right after I get done buying a new Macbook, Apple goes and updates them with better specs. Oh well.

Looks like the Apple Store was down for a good reason. The new entry-level Macbook features a faster 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB hard drive, and a combo drive. All the next version has is a Superdrive, a 2.16GHz CPU, and a 120GB, which will cost you another $200 ($1299). High-end Macbook models in black now feature a 160GB hard drive, plus all the aforementioned goodies for $1499.

As for the innards, all the same stuff is there. 802.11n WiFi, Bluetooth, built-in iSight, etc. I’d say now’s a pretty good time to buy a Macbook if you’ve been holding out, as these new upgrades make even the entry-level model a powerhouse. Oh, and by the way. No Santa-Rosa. We told you so.
