    There's not much to distinguish this low-end MacBook from the 2GHz model released in May 2007. However, a new chipset architecture increases the amount of RAM capacity to 4GB and boosts the frontside bus speed to 800MHz. More significantly, the integrated graphics system has been upgraded to an Intel GMA X3100 with 144MB of shared memory; that translates to improved performance in graphics-dependent applications over the earlier MacBooks.

    MSRP: $1,099
