Apple releases the MacBook May 17, 2006

Posted by rjdohnert in Tech News.

Following in the Intel Everywhere tradition, Apple has released the new MacBook, retiring the iBook series.  New features, well its got the Intel Core Duo, is smaller than the MacBook Pro and comes in White or Black, also has a beautiful glossy screen.  Shows Apples not racist, includes front Row, iSight and just about the same features of the MacBook Pro.

NOTE:  Apple also gave the MacBook Pro a speedbump and added the glossy screen option.


My Take; Still slightly more expensive than most consumer notebooks on the market.  I think this will probably stall the MacBook Pro sales but I dont see any other enticement for PC users to suddenly switch.  Its a beautiful machine but Im a little let down like I heard the sizzle but got meatloaf instead of a steak.  Oh and before the Mac fanbase starts screaming "We have glossy screen!!!!" Dell has had that option for awhile.  Im a sucker so I am going to wait for the second gen machines.
