Two weeks after refreshing the MacBook Pro line, and well behind other notebook manufacturers, Apple has at long last updated its consumer notebooks to include Intel's mobile Core 2 Duo processors. The new MacBooks are still priced at $1,099, $1,299, and $1,499, and their processors still run at the same clock speeds of 1.86GHz for the cheapest model and 2.0GHz for the other two.
As with the MacBook Pro refresh, Apple has also bundled a few additional tweaks with the processor change. The $1,299 and $1,499 MacBooks now have hard drive capacities of 80GB and 120GB, respectively, whereas previous models had capacities of 60GB and 80GB. Those notebooks also have had their default configuration's memory doubled to 1GB.
The new MacBooks are already available from the Apple Store, and Apple quotes a 1-3 day lead time for all three models.
