Essentially, this is the same 2.1GHz MacBook Apple introduced in February 2008 right down to its white plastic enclosure and FireWire ports--something Apple abandoned with the rest of its MacBook offerings. The main difference between this model and the one Apple introduced in February is the optical drive -- this MacBook now features a DVD-burning SuperDrive -- and the price tag. This model breaks the $1,000 barrier for the Intel-based MacBooks.
Faster is just the beginning. The new MacBook Notebook features the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor and larger hard drive. It's the same does-everything-you-want notebook but better.
