Apple Watch: New MacBooks
Tuesday, 2008 October 14 - 5:39 pm
Apple announced new MacBooks today. The new 13" MacBook and the 15" MacBook Pro feature one-piece aluminum frames, LED-backlit displays, and new multi-touch trackpads. The non-Pro versions now have Nvidia 9400M GPUs, a vast improvement over the old models' Intel x3100 GMA integrated graphics. The Pro versions have the 9400M plus an Nvidia 9600M; users can choose to switch to the less power-hungry 9400M to improve battery life.

The older MacBook is now the "MacBook White" and is available starting at $999.

The new MacBooks are very nice and all, but Apple: you're killing me by not putting out a new Mac mini. Seriously. The mini hasn't been updated in 14 months. I would have bought a new mini TODAY if it had been introduced with the 9400M GPU. I have a bazillion monitors; I don't need any computer with an attached monitor (i.e., an iMac or a MacBook) and I don't want to shell out $2800 for the Mac Pro. Sigh.
