More to love in the New MacBook.

It was just a matter of time. Behold, the new MacBook and MacBook Pro!

The official press release:

Faster is just the beginning. The new MacBook features the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors, larger hard drives, and up to 2GB of memory standard. It’s the same does-everything-you-want notebook but better.

DESIGN

Streamlined to go.
A mere 1.08 inches thin and weighing only 5.0 pounds, MacBook cuts a slim profile on any desk (or in any backpack or briefcase). And since MacBook is sure to become your constant companion, a durable polycarbonate shell keeps it ready for the rough and tumble of everyday life.

Looking good.
Whether you’re working on your next Keynote presentation or watching a movie before you catch a flight, every document, video, and photo on your MacBook will look sharp on the glossy 13.3-inch widescreen display. With pixel-perfect 1280-by-800 resolution, it’s great for viewing and working with media.

Key figure.
MacBook features a unique keyboard design that sits flush against the bed for a lower profile. That means you experience a firm, responsive touch when typing. Now that ought to make your fingers happy.

<h3>FEATURES</h3>

More room for your stuff.
Store more on a larger hard drive with up to 250GB of storage.

More is more.
Music, photos, movies — not to mention your documents and other files — all start adding up. And add up they can, because the new MacBook offers larger hard drives across the line. With up to 2GB of memory standard, you can multi-task like never before.

Better than ever.
Inside the new MacBook is the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processor based on 45nm-process technology and advanced Core microarchitecture. This powerful technology lets Intel create hundreds of millions of microscopic 45-nanometer transistors. And the advancements keep advancing with 3MB of shared L2 cache and a newly enhanced SSE4 vector engine. Translation: you get a MacBook with snappier performance that runs applications faster and more efficiently than ever before.

Making connections.
Sometimes your work needs room. So extend your MacBook desktop by connecting a 20- or 23-inch Apple Cinema Display. But why stop the add-ons there? Your MacBook also includes two USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire 400 port, Gigabit Ethernet, audio input and headphone jacks, and a convenient lock slot. When you want to burn a party mix CD or a Hollywood-caliber iMovie creation, do so on a 24x Combo drive or an 8x double-layer SuperDrive.

Power play.
The MagSafe Power Adapter is just that: a magnetic connection instead of a physical one. So tripping over a power cord won’t send your shiny new MacBook flying off a table or desk. The cord simply breaks cleanly away, without damage to either the cord or the system.

Two-finger scroll.
With two-finger scrolling, the trackpad becomes a fast track to wherever you want to go. And if you come from a right-click world, it’s easy to make the MacBook fit in your comfort zone. There are shortcuts for right-click functionality, forward delete, and more.

Magnetic attraction.
Opening and closing your MacBook is a pleasure, thanks to a magnetic latch that catches without a catch. And because it’s a magnet, there are no moving parts to snag, jam, or break.

Lights, MacBook, action.
Cleverly integrated above your MacBook display is an iSight camera. You can be there without being there using iChat. Video chat with a buddy, share a photo slideshow with Mom, or run through a presentation with a colleague. Since you’re close-up ready, use iSight with Photo Booth for fun photo effects. Or star in your own indie flick with iMovie. Like everything Mac, your iSight just works. No need to waste valuable primping time installing software or configuring the camera. Just smile.

<h2>WIRELESS</h2>

The wireless standard.
MacBook comes with built-in wireless capabilities that let you do everything you need to do, anywhere you need to do it. Wi-Fi networks show up right on your desktop. Just click and connect, and you can surf the web, send email, video chat, and more. Easily share files with other users on the network using Bonjour. And stay in sync with your Bluetooth-enabled phone courtesy of Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR.

Wireless backup.
Time Machine is the breakthrough automatic backup that’s built right into Mac OS X. Now Time Capsule — a server-grade hard drive plus Wi-Fi base station — lets you use Time Machine to wirelessly back up your files. And it happens in the background so you never have to worry about backing up again.

Wireless printing.
AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express, and Time Capsule all include a USB port, so you can connect a printer and print wirelessly from your MacBook anywhere in your home. And the convenience of wireless printing is extended not only to you, but to others on your network, including PC users.

Chat wirelessly.
iChat turns any video chat into an event. Video backdrops, Photo Booth effects, photo slideshows, Keynote presentations, even movies on your MacBook — you can share it all using iChat.

Back to My Mac.
Let’s say you’re at work and you left an important file on your computer at home. With Back to My Mac, a feature of .Mac, you can get to any Leopard-based Mac remotely with just a click. .Mac finds your Mac computers over the Internet and displays them in the Leopard Finder on the Mac you’re using. So wherever you go, all your files follow you.

<h2>Wireless Entertainment Center</h2>

Stream your music.
With AirPort Express and AirTunes, stream music from your iTunes library to any powered speakers wirelessly. If you have speakers in several rooms, you can use more than one AirPort Express and play music throughout your home or studio for high-end sound all around.

Wireless movie rentals.
With iTunes, you can now rent, download, and watch the newest releases as well as classic movies on MacBook, without going to a video store or returning a rental. Wherever you find yourself, find a movie wirelessly.

  1. Ever since we started using Macs in the office (at least, sa team ko), we have not looked back. Really nice ang Mac.

    On the side, tanong ko lang if the WidgetBucks is good? I’m planning to add advertising space to my blog. Thanks!

  2. Still looking forward to the day that I could actually own a Mac…

    Re Widgetbucks, I removed the ad links widget already as it doesn’t bring in good $. The conversion rate is low as compared to Adsense. It’s good if you have a high traffic site with visitors who would actually click on your ads. Give it a try and see if it converts well for your site.
