Apple Births New Apple Macbook Family; Full Specs and Pricing

We brought you the unveiling of the new Apple notebooks this morning straight from Cupertino, but now we have got the low down on the entire new MacBook family, including each of the SKUs and the pricing. The biggest news is the new design of the 13.3-inch MacBook and 15-inch MacBook Pro. Both have a  “unibody enclosure crafted from a single block of aluminum, resulting in thinner, more durable designs.” In addition, every member of the new MacBook family now sports NVIDIA graphics, LED-backlit displays and large glass Multi-Touch trackpads. At 0.95-inches thin and 4.5 pounds, the new 13-inch aluminum MacBook starts at $1,299. It is avilable in two models. The 2.0 GHz MacBook with a 160GB, 5400 rpm hard drive will go for $1,299 and the 2.4 GHz MacBook with a 250GB 5400 rpm hard drive and a backlit keyboard for $1,599. The 15-inch MacBook Pro at 0.95-inches thin and 5.5 pounds starts at $1,999 and uses the latest Intel Core 2 Duo processors. It also sports switchable graphics that  allows users to switch between the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics processor for better battery life and the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT discrete graphics processor for higher performance. A 2.4 GHz model with a 250GB 5400 rpm hard drive will be avilable for $1,999 and a 2.53 GHz model with a 320GB 5400 rpm hard drive for $2,499. Apple also updated the MacBook Air and the 17-inch MacBook Pro. The MacBook Air now includes new NVIDIA GeForce 9400M integrated graphics. Starting at $1,799, MacBook Air is available with a 120GB 4,200 rpm hard drive,  or a new 128GB solid state drive ($2,499). The updated 17-inch MacBook Pro (starting at $2,799) keeps its original aluminum design, and now comes standard with a high resolution 1920 x 1200 LED-backlit display and a larger 320GB hard drive or an optional 128GB solid state drive. The new MacBook, 15-inch MacBook Pro and 17-inch MacBook Pro are now shipping and the new MacBook Air will be available in early November.
