As we already mentioned in a previous article, Intel was showing off their new dual-core mobile processors and noted that many vendors were already shipping or about to ship laptops with dual-core capabilities. One piece of hardware that many folks have been waiting on has been the (in)famous debut of Intel chips in Apple computers. Well, Apple went all the way and stuck dual-core CPUs in their new MacBooks. Cool. They’re saying it runs over 4x faster than a Powerbook G4. The MacBook is coming in two flavors: a 1.67GHz and a 1.83GHz Intel Duo Core both with 15.4″ screens, 667MHz frontside bus, Serial ATA hard drives, ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 graphics cards, and Slot-load SuperDrive (DVDÂ±RW/CD-RW).
The 1.83GHz machine is $500 more than the 1.67GHz one and comes with twice the memory, larger hard drive and more powerful graphics card. These boxes also have PCI Express and is the first Mac notebook to have it. These machines ship in February, so order yours today!
Price: $1,999 for 1.67GHz, $2,499 for 1.83GHz
