Apple 13-inch 2.26GHz Macbook

Maybe Apple should have gotten Valerie Bertinelli to do its TV commercials for the entry level MacBook upgrade: lighter, thinner and one complete package. I don’t know which one I want more.

At $999, Apple has managed to shave its weight (5 pounds down to 4.7 pounds) and thickness by using similar construction techniques used in its aluminum MacBook Pro line that make the low-end laptop a one piece, white, unibody polycarbonate shell.

Specs: 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of memory, a 250GB hard drive, an 8x double-layer SuperDrive, an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics chip, and a seven-hour battery life (debatable).

New: a switch to an LED-backlit display and the same glass multi-touch trackpad found in the MacBook Pro line. Sad: the disappearance (again) of a FireWire 400 port and a switch to Apple’s oh so popular self-contained, non-swappable battery (not!).

Think of this new model as simply growing up with the times, but costing the same.

Buy for $994 from Amazon
