New Apple Macbook Laptop Range Spotted In Vietnam

After the iPhone 4G teardown, the guys at Tinhte.com have brought us some more information about a forthcoming Macbook white laptop which would replace the existing entry level model.

The new Macbook (opens in new tab) would apparently sport a new Intel Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.4Ghz rather than 2.26GHz plus an Nvidia GeForce 320M with 256MB GDDR3, a significant upgrade from the Geforce 9400M on the existing range, and the same model that's found on the MacBook pro range.

Another significant upgrade is the improvement of the MagSafe connector with the entry level Macbook apparently adopting the new streamlined version of the power connector.

The rest of the specification it seems remains the same; a 13.3-inch 1280x800 pixels display, a 250GB hard disk drive, slot-in DVD writer, WiFi and Bluetooth and 2GB DDR3 memory.

The video below, from Tinhte shows an unboxing of an actual product, which means that availability shouldn't be too far away. We expect Apple to bump the price of the new Macbook slightly because of the strength of the dollar against the pound.

The Macbook currently retails for £816 (opens in new tab).
