The white 13-inch MacBook gets a spec bump

macbook-updateJust in time for graduation shopping, the $999 white 13-inch MacBook is now a bit more powerful. This is the second time that Apple has updated the least expensive Mac notebook. This round of updates isn’t as impressive, but we’ll take anything we can get.

Now, the base model white MacBook comes with a 160GB HDD, 2GB of RAM, and a slightly faster, 2.13GHZ Intel Core 2 Duo. Specs for spec, these updates now make the white MacBook faster than the base model, and $300 more expensive, aluminum unibody MacBook. Funny. So chances are that this white MacBook update points at future unibody spec bumps.
