The new Core 2 Duo based Apple MacBooks are available now. I’m still making good use of the original model I bought this past Spring. But, the new models not only have a faster CPU, Apple also gave the 2GHz models new standard configurations. The white 2GHz model now sports an 80GB hard drive and 1GB RAM in its standard configuration (vs. 60GB and 512MB). The black model bumps the standard hard drive size to 120GB. And, the prices remain at US$1299 and $1499 respectively.
