Apple Increases Price Of New Macbook

Apple has refreshed its new Macbook as widely expected and the improvements are superficial rather than radical; the only major change is the price which is bumped to £849, a £33 increase from the price only 24 hours ago.

As expected the price in the US has remained the same at $999 which means that the price rise is due to the current Dollar/Pound exchange rate.

The new Macbook comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo processor, one with 3MB L2 Cache and running at 2.4GHz, 2GB DDR3 memory, a 250GB hard disk drive, an 8x SuperDrive drive and a 13.3-inch LED-backlit display with a native resolution of 1280x800.

The other interesting improvement if the new NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor which replaces the 9400M and uses 256MB of system DDR3 memory; the new 320M apparently offers a performance boost of up to 80 percent.

Apple has also included a webcam, a MagSafe power poort, a GbE port, 802.11n and a mini Display Unit.

Physically, it still retains the polycarbonate unibody enclosure which also houses a 64Whr battery, offering a 10 hours battery life. More about the new Macbook here.
