On Monday, Apple surprised many by revamping nearly its entire line of laptops at the WWDC. The 13" aluminum MacBook is now part of the MacBook Pro line, and its 15" and 17" relatives received faster processors.
In addition, the 13" and 15" models now come equipped with a lithium-polymer battery that Apple claims lasts for up to seven hours, while battery on the the 17" model lasts for eight hours.
Other notable improvements include a new SD card slot on the 13" and 15" models, as well as two USB 2.0 ports (three on the 17" model) and a FireWire 800 port. The LED-backlit widescreen display offers richer, more vibrant colors, while being more power efficient.
The MacBook Air wasn’t ignored, receiving a faster processor and a lower price. Finally, the white MacBook received a slightly faster processor and a bigger hard drive. All the revised models are available immediatley, and Apple says each model meets the criteria for the EPEAT Gold standard and Energy Star version 5.0.
