The MacBook line has been refreshed with new Intel Core i5 and i7 processors. The 13-inch machine will stick with the lowly Core 2 Duo that it has been strapped with for a while now. The new parts come in the 15.4-inch and 17-inch models.

 

Those two machines get new Core i5 and i7 processor options and the highest end versions will have a new video card option with the GeForce GT 330M featuring Optimus technology. The 13-inch machine apparently gets faster Core 2 CPUs with new 2.4GHz and 2.66GHz offerings. All versions now get 4GB of RAM and 320 or 500GB HDDs, and a 512GB SSD is optional. The 13-inch machines start at $1,199, the 15-inch starts at $1,799, and the 17-inch starts at $2,299. A new anti-glare screen option has also been added.
