Apple updates white 13-inch MacBook to NVIDIA architecture

macbookjpegApple quietly upgraded previous-generation white 13-inch MacBooks to NVIDIA’s 9400M architecture.  A move aimed at boosting sales of its notebook during a potential period of reduced consumer spending.

The $999 entry level model now includes the same 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 1,066MHz front-side bus.  It also adopts the same NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared memory.

The white MacBook also enjoyed a doubling of its memory configuration to 2GBs, and employs 667MHz DDR2 memory rather than the faster 1,066MHz DDR3 filly of its aluminum cousins.

The remainder of the notebook’s specifications remain largely unchanged, there is a little blueTooth tweak.  Still has the 120GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA hard disk drive and 8X SuperDrive.

The benefit of  NVIDIA’s new 9400M platform in addition to FireWire (400). 

The move to further embrace the legacy polycarbonate MacBook strongly infers demand for the notebook remained  strong during the holiday shopping season even though speculation existed regarding a phase out.
