In a move that surprised no one, Apple finally officially launched the replacement to their iBook today – the MacBook:
Core Duo, iSight, Front Row with remote, and all the goodies that you’d expect. The screen is a 13.3″ widescreen 1200×800 unit, and it’s thinner than the old iBook. Available in white or black, which is awesome. A black MacBook would perfectly match all of the other black gadgets I have (iPod, PSP, X41 Tablet, Dell 2005FPW LCD, etc.). Starting price is $1099 for a 1.83 GHz system with 512 MB RAM.
Will I be getting one? We’ll see. They’re definitely nice systems, and easy to recommend, but I think if I end up with an Apple laptop, I’d want it to be the MacBook Pro, mainly for it’s more powerful 3D graphics capabilities (I’m starting to dabble more and more in Second Life, and the integrated graphics on my Mac mini and X41 Tablet just aren’t cutting it – the same graphics chipset on these new MacBooks).
What do you think?
