The MacBooks being released later today have a few confirmations from Daring Fireball we thought we would share:


1.  The trackpad on the MacBook and the MacBook Pro are indeed buttonless and are interestingly made of glass.

2.  MacBook Air will be updated with a 120GB drive or a 128GB SSD.

3.  MacBook and MacBook Pro will be available with a Glossy-only screen

4.  The new MacBooks containNVIDIA 9400M GPUs. MacBook Pros will also contain a dedicated 9600M GT GPU for enhanced performance.

5.  The $899 MacBook is actually just a display of 24 inches, not the cheaper notebook.

6.  CPU’s will stay close in speed to what they are now.


Finally there suposedly will only be 2 price points, not a ton as we showed you earlier:


– $1299: 2.0 GHz, 2 GB memory, 160 GB disk
– $1499: 2.4 GHz, 2 GB memory, 250 GB disk


The glass trackpad is quite interesting.  This should be a very interesting day for the new MacBooks.  With all the new SKU’s of earlier, we wonder what else Apple has in store for us.
