New MacBook Adds Backlight Display, Nvidia Graphics

Calling the MacBook an "amazing product," Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the latest generation consumer notebooks at the company's headquarters on Tuesday.

Jobs said that people wanted a MacBook with a metal enclosure, faster graphics, and LED backlit displays.

Like the MacBook Pro, the MacBook features a unibody enclosure. IT also comes with an LED backlight display, multi-touch glass trackpad, Mini Display Port connector and new graphics.

With five hours of battery life, the MacBook comes in two models. For US$1,299 you get a 13.3-inch display, 2GHz Core 2 Duo with 3MB L2 cache, 2GB 1066MHz DDR 3 memory, GeForce 9400M, a 160GB hard drive, and a slot-loading SuperDrive. The second model costs $1,599 and comes with a 2.4GHz processor, 250GB hard drive, and a backlit keyboard.

Apple will continue to make the white plastic MacBook with a 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processors, a 120GB 5400 rpm hard drive and a slot-load 8X SuperDrive and sell it for $999.
