Earlier this morning Apple released its latest version of the MacBook. As expected, the new version has a 10 hour battery life — the same as the new 13 inch MacBook Pro. Additionally, Apple has also equipped it with NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics. Even better, the new MacBook now has a 2.4 GHz processor, but unfortunately, they’re still using a Core 2 Duo over the new i5 and i7 processors.

Currently, Apple has the product priced at just under $1000. This would probably benefit university students the most, but it’s also a solid solution for others on limited cash budgets.

I’m surprised at how little Apple has improved this product. Perhaps it’s trying to weed the MacBook out of its lineup. I’m not sure that would be a good move, however, as reports are coming out about Mac sales increasing and iPod sales decreasing.
