MacBooks Now Sport Intel Core 2 Duo

MacNN (among many others) has the skinny:

Apple today unveiled its new MacBook featuring Intel Core 2 Duo processors and offering double the memory as well as greater storage capacity than the previous generation. The one-inch thin laptops are up to 25 percent faster than the previous generation, according to Apple, and maintain the built-in iSight video camera for on-the-go video conferencing alongside a double-layer SuperDrive for burning DVDs. The new notebooks also retain Apple's MagSafe Power Adapter that safely disconnects when under strain, and iLife '06, Apple's suite of digital lifestyle applications. The updated MacBooks start at $1,099 and include three models: white 1.83GHz and 2GHz MacBooks, as well as the black 2GHz MacBook.

So, faster, more RAM, more storage. Not a bad incremental update.

I want one. If I could afford it, I'd be getting it here.

Engadget and Gizmodo have their takes, too. Apple's official version of events is here.
