At A Glance

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 life. Like the white 2GHz model, this MacBook features 4MB of L2 cache -- twice the amount of earlier MacBooks. There's also 1GB of installed memory now, as well as a faster DVD-burning SuperDrive and a higher-capacity hard-drive.
