Apple Bumps White MacBook Specs

Apple quietly updated the specs for its entry level MacBook this week to more closely match the features of its unibody siblings. The updated model now sports a 2GHz Core 2 Duo processor with a 1,066MHz frontside bus, 2GB of RAM and an NVIDIA GeForce 9400M video processor.

The updated laptop keeps its white plastic body instead of switching to the metal unibody construction found on Apple's other laptop models, and also keeps its FireWire 400 port -- a feature that was dropped from the unibody MacBook design.

The white MacBook is still priced at US$999.
