Apple introduced their next generation notebooks earlier today in Cupertino. Although they didn’t implement Blu-Ray or drop a new platform under the $1,000 mark, Apple sure did upgrade some features lacking in the old MacBook. Kicking the old casing to the curb, the MacBook gets an aluminum shell with black glass display and keypad. Other features include: a fully click-able track pad, new Nvidia graphics card, 5 hours of stated battery life and an LED back-lite screen similar to the MacBook Pro. The price does hike up to 2.0GHz/160GB/2MB RAM/Superdrive version for $1299 and 2.4 GHz/250GB for $1599 but the older model now gets dropped down to $999. More information regarding specs can be obtained at the Apple website.
