With today’s announcement of the MacBook consumer notebooks (a.k.a. “WhiteBook” and “BlackBook”) comes another surprise: Apple has quietly speed-bumped the processors in the original MacBook Pro announced in January. They’ve dropped the 1.83GHz configuration and now offer 2.0 and 2.16GHz Intel Core Duo configurations standard for the same price. All other specs seem to be the same.

  1. Hi- I was able to try a new MacBook out. I was also thinking that the features were VERY similar to the MBPros, and that it’d be nice to have the rugged design, smaller size/weight, and lower price. However, the keyboard is not in the same league as the MacBookPro, which is a dealbreaker for me. It’s definitely better that the original white iBook keyboard, but I’m not sure if it’s better than the latest iBook G4s.
