New Apple MacBook (White) Offers Rubberized Unibody

The aluminum unibody MacBook and MacBook Pro have garnered plenty of attention, but that lowly white MacBook seems to have been left behind. Don’t worry. Apple remembers this end of the market as well and that’s why a completely updated version of the MacBook White has been announced and revealed.

I’m not entirely sure if we can technically call it a unibody, but the chassis for the new white MacBook is certainly different from before. The removable battery has been swapped out for a non-replaceable seven-hour unit, making a flat rubberized bottom. They say that it’s thinner and with beveled edges, but some reports are saying that it actually looks chubbier than the previous generation.

Just about all of the specs have been upgraded as well. You get an LED backlit display and a multitouch trackpad, just like the most expensive 13-inch MacBook Pro. There are also some other small aesthetic changes to make it look more like the current aluminum unibody line.

The base $1,099 configuration comes with a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD, 8x SuperDrive, and NVIDIA GeForce 9400M. These can be updated or upgraded further through a custom order.

Also announced today were the new 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMac all-in-one computers, as well as the updated Mac Mini. All details should be available on the Apple site now.
