Apple 13-inch MacBook/1.83GHz
As with the Intel-based iMac and MacBook Pro lines, the consumer MacBooks get a new processor in the form of the Intel Core 2 Duo chip, which promises better performance without any decrease in battery...
With no increase in RAM or hard drive capacity and a slower Core 2 Duo chip, this MacBook lags behind the more expensive 2GHz offerings. Still, it outperforms an iBook G4 in all of tests and a PowerBook G4 in many of our tests -- like the other MacBook Core 2 Duo models, the 1.83GHz version is fast, sturdy, and versatile.
