The Core 2 Duo MacBook Is Out!

If you’re planning to buy a Macbook soon, don’t! The Core 2 Duo MacBook versions have just been announced by Apple (yes, it’s official!). And like with the MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo updates, the prices are same with the original Core Duo prices.

With prices starting at just $1,099, the new MacBook lineup includes three models: sleek white 1.83 GHz and 2.0 GHz MacBook models, and a stunning black 2.0 GHz MacBook model. With Intel’s latest Core 2 Duo processors, the new MacBook is up to 25 percent faster than the previous MacBook and up to six times faster than the iBook(R), making it even easier for consumers to manage and enjoy their digital content with iLife ‘06.* Consumers will also benefit from the added power in the new 2.0 GHz models, including double the memory and greater storage capacity than the previous generation, as well as a double-layer SuperDrive(TM) for burning professional-quality DVDs.

With the second-generation MacBooks coming out, I hope these will be rid of the problems of the original MacBook, namely the well-publicized fading/peeling finish and the Random Shutdown Syndrom (RSS).

If you just bought a MacBook recently, you’re probably hitting yourself in the head right now.

    Expensive! “A!@&**&*!@”

  3. Well compared to say, Dell Inspiron (US prices not Philippines), yes it’s expensive. But if I needed an extra laptop and had the cash, I’d go for one.

  4. I was thinking of getting a refurb Macbook core duo. One disadvantage though is that I cannot take advantage of the 64bit goodies of the upcoming Mac OSX Leopard. But I think I can live with the Tiger

    duh its the best computing device ever
    the os understands the hardware

  11. guys, before you rant on how expensive the Macbook is, let me just tell you that it’s WORTH IT.

    -great OS-hardware synergy. as in excellent.
    -the MagSafe power adaptor.
    -stable. AS IN.
    -great keyboard.
    -absolute eye candy.

    i have my Macbook on for days on end, halos walang pahinga, it’s still alive and kicking.

    so before you curse the macbook (core 2 duo), try using one. i’m sure your outlook on personal computing will change dramatically. :p
