Apple didn’t yell too loudly about this one but the low end, white Unibody MacBook got a refresh this morning.
The black (or white) sheep of Apple’s laptop family got a boost this morning, with a faster CPU and built-in graphics card to match the entry level MacBook Pro and better battery life.
The little white laptop that could is still missing a few crucial specs that its bigger brothers get to boast about. For an additional $200, the 13″ MacBook Pro boasts an SD Card slot, 4GB of RAM instead of 2GB and the shinier, tougher aluminum enclosure.
The white MacBook is a decent performer, although it really only exists so that Apple can claim they sell a laptop under the crucial retail price point ofÂ $1000.
