    Talking apple has once again updated the white macbook
    hi all,

    was just browsing on the apple site and went to look at the white polycarbonate macbook [the 1 that got marjorly upgraded beginning of this yr] and it looks like they have upgraded it a lil bit more. not heaps, just two things but pretty good 2 things.

    1. RAM
    previously: 2GB 667MHz DDR2 SDRAM
    now: 2GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM

    2. Hard Drive
    previously: 120GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA Drive
    now: 160GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA Drive

    and it's still rougly the same price [$1,600AU]

    now the only real difference between the macbook white and aluminum is RAM and looks

    although i must admit, the trackpad on the aluminum is freakin amazing

    just thought i'd spread the word for all those having trouble with which 1 to choose...like me

    although i think i'm gonna go with the white macbook
    i've played with both of them and i don't really like the aluminum screen and as good as it looks...i don't think it's worth the money

    The new White MacBook also still has Firewire... for those still in need.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Hmm, I wonder when they'll update the uMB? WWDC is right around the corner so maybe in the upcoming weeks they'll update it an give a antiglare option this time.

    Isn't that event more Software and apps than hardware?

    I don't think 800Mhz RAM is that much of an upgrade. >_>"

    to be honest, i'm a bit upset that apple did this. i bought the updated macbook white in february when it was first released. it was $999 at best buy. now i hear that they are selling a further upgraded version of my computer for the same price as i paid for lower specs a mere three months later. and to top it off, best buy is now selling their remaining stock of the pre-upgrade model for $899. i feel jipped.

    yeah, I was in macauthority the other day and they said that the remaining stock of the old white macbooks were 899, so it's not just bestbuy - it's almost like it was apple mandated to get rid of the old as they issued the new. It's interesting that the new stuff is updating so fast; at this rate one has to wonder if apple will really be able to maintain the pricing, and if the used market won't start to tank due to the quick addition of new models and people desiring to upgrade.

    Specs:
    Aluminium MacBook | iPod Touch
    For now, there's almost no incentive to buy an Aluminum MacBook over the white one. LED backlit screen and the multi-touch trackpad are better gone for the extra 300$ gained. And the unibody? The protection offered by a poly-carbonate shell is more.

    I wanted to buy the white MacBook, but got the Aluminum one just days before Nvidia 9400M upgrade to white MacBook. Sadly, my reason for buying the Aluminum one solely relied on the Graphics.

    And now they kick in another update. This makes me think they are gonna change things with the UniBody and I'll remain with one firewire-less laptop that occupied no significant time in Apple's stables.

    yer the white one is really still worth considering

    although i must admit the unibody mac touchpad is amazingly awesome
    but not worth the extra 300
    the RAM doesn't make that much of a difference from wat i hear

    white macbook all the way

    I'll admit, I like the look and feel of the unibody macbook, screen, touchpad (gotta love that huge track area) and on some the backlit keys (top end macbook model), but the white one is much more cost effective.

    The only negative about the white (aside from I'd prefer black or aluminum) is that it near about screams "MAC HERE" - which if anyone keeps up with sales on ebay would make a thief think "OOO I know who's laptop I'm gonna try to steal".

    Yes, the old black and newer unibodies have a logo that stands out, but unless you're looking at the right angle, it doesn't scream as much as the white does IMHO.

    Honestly, I think what they need to do:

    white macbook 9400m
    unibody macbook 9400m+9600 w/ 256 or 512 ded vid ram
    macbook pro: either 9800gtx or ati 4870 w/ 1gig ded vid ram

    Drop firewire 400 from the white, put it in the unibody.

    keep the macbook on core2duo and move the pro to core i7

    That would distinguish the capabilities enough, but allow for people who don't need a macbook pro to get a laptop that would offer more then what a 9400m offers. That would also more justify the pricing of the different models when right now it's kind of out there considering how similar some currently are.

    I realize this digressed a little from main topic and I apologize, this is all IMHO

    Yeah, I understand your frustration. Unfortunately this is the way it always will be in the computer business. There is always something new around the next corner... :/
