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.
