At A Glance

Apple quietly updated the processor speed and hard-drive capacity of this entry-level MacBook at the end of May; it also increased the speed of the RAM to 800MHz from 667MHz, bringing it in line with the unibody MacBooks. But two weeks later, Apple revamped its laptop line, leaving this white polycarbonate-encased model as the only remaining MacBook.
