Apple MacBook fans have long been clamoring for an update to their beloved line of MacBook notebooks. Today that update has finally happened.




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.
