Apple Have New MacBook, iMacs and Multi-touch Magic Mouse

macbook-heroA range of Apple-flavoured joy abounds!

Not only do we have a new MacBook and a choice of iMacs the little Magic Mouse gets all touchy!

So – a brand-new version of the entry-level white MacBook eh?

What’s new?

You get the upper-class addition of the same glass multi-touch trackpad that’s usually seen larking about on the more expensive aluminium MacBook Pro.

Other bits on the list include a 13 inch model include a backlit keyboard as standard, a more durable unibody plastic body (like a cheaper version of the aluminium MacBook Pro job), and up to 7 hours of battery life.

OS X Snow Leopard purrs along on a 2.26GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, with 2GB of RAM, a 250GB hard drive and the same Nvidia GeForce 9400M graphics chip found in the entry-level aluminium MacBook Pro.

Not too shabby for £799 methinks 🙂


Also getting a wash-and-brush up is Apples iMac line of all-in-one desktops.

The spanky new LED backlit 21.5 and 27 inch widescreen iMacs come with a choice of graphics and hard-drive options, as well as that much longed for SD card slot and that new multi-touch Magic Mouse.

As rumoured there is still a distinct lack of Blu-ray.

These new models get an edge-to-edge glass design and aluminium unibody.

Sporting 4GB of 1,066MHz DDR3 memory, with breathing space to build-up to 16GB across four SO-DIMM slots.

They’re also swaggering about with a DVD drive, AirPort Extreme 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Ethernet, FireWire, iSight webcam and that SD card slot.

The 21.5 inch screen boasts 1920×1080 pixel HD resolution.

You get the choice of chip: the first includes graphics powered by an integrated Nvidia GeForce 9400M chip, and a 500GB hard drive, for £950. The second offers a discrete ATI Radeon HD 4670 card and 1TB hard drive, for £1,200.

The new 27 inch model is rocking 2560×1440-pixel display.

The 3.06GHz Intel Core 2 Duo version includes the ATI Radeon HD 4670 discrete graphics.

Whereas the 2.66GHz version is packing either the new quad-core Intel Core i5 or Core i7 CPUs and ATI Radeon HD 4850 discrete graphics.

You get the option of roomy 1TB or 2TB hard drives.

The new iMacs are bundled with a wireless keyboard and the new wireless Magic Mouse. It’s a mouse with multi-touch – yeah, really, just like the iPod Touch and iPhone!
