As we reported two days ago, the big news is the new Intel GMA X3100 video card. You can also opt for a new Apple MacBook with up to 4GB internal memory, and a hard drive up to 250GB with 5400rpm.

New MacBook Pro

On the Apple MacBook Pro side, the changes are less significant. The low-end model has been equipped with the same 250GB, 5400rpm hard drive as the Apple MacBook, and you can go for a more powerful 2.6GHz Core 2 Duo processor rather than the previous 2.4GHz chip.

All the new Apple MacBook and MacBook Pro configurations are available on the Apple Store now. Prices remain unchanged.
