Apple Announces New Aluminum MacBooks


At their Notebook Media event today, Apple announced two new MacBook models which have adopted new all-metal enclosures, improved graphics performance, and glass Multi-Touch trackpads.

β€œApple has invented a whole new way of building notebooks from a single block of aluminum. And, just as important, they are the industry’s greenest notebooks,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. β€œThe new MacBooks offer incredible features our users will love β€”like their stunning all-metal design, great 3D graphics and LED backlit displaysβ€”at prices up to $700 less than before.”

Features include:

– Unibody enclosure
– Mini DisplayPort for Video out
– NVIDIA graphics
– Instant-on LED-backlit displays
– Glass Multi-Touch trackpad with new Multi-Touch gestures

The old low end $1099 MacBook will remain in Apple’s product line and fall to $999, while the new MacBooks will provide the following price points:

– $1299. 13.3″ Glossy Display, 2.0GHz, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, 160GB HD.
– $1599. 13.3″ Glossy Display, 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 9400M, 250GB HD.

There appears to be no Firewire port as previously discussed. More details available at http://www.apple.com/macbook/. The new MacBook will be available in early November.
