Apple adds new MacBook retail configurations

Ah ha! This is why I have held off on buying myself a MacBook just yet. I knew that Apple would be doing some tinkering and I thought it might be wise to wait.

Apple Computer recently added two new retail configurations to its MacBook line of consumer notebooks, both of which are now available at most of the company’s stores, AppleInsider has learned.

A new 2.0GHz white MacBook configuration packs an additional 512MB of RAM and 20GB of extra hard disk space, for a total of 1GB of RAM (via two 512MB SODIMMs) and 80GB of storage.

The new model retails for $1449, or $150 more than the 2.0GHz white MacBook with 512MB of RAM and a 60GB hard disk. Both configurations included Apple’s SuperDrive optical disc drive…. Source: AppleInsider
