Apple Updates MacBooks to Santa Rosa, GMA X3100



As rumored, Apple has quietly updated the MacBook tonight to the Santa Rosa architecture with mild speed bumps and the new GMA X3100 integrated video.

White 13.3"
$1099.00 2.0GHz/2x512MB/80GB/Combo/GMA X3100
$1299.00 2.2GHz/2x512MB/120GB/SD-DL/GMA X3100

Black 13.3"
$1499.00 2.2GHz/2x512MB/160GB/SD-DL/GMA X3100

The new MacBooks use the Santa Rosa chipset which boasts a faster 800MHz front side bus over the previous MacBook models. The new specs can be seen at the Apple Store

I am sorry, but I don't see any change at all from the page, what was changed?

Can somebody give me a before and after comparison here?

Thanks

Not a really spectacular update but a nice speedbump. Not aluminum ? Maybe the next revision.

What is strange - if I go into the store right now - the old Macbooks show.

yawn...I guess we kinda saw it coming though.

LMAO at combo drive still being there...how pathetic. Why would they do that? Go into any big box store and you'd be hard pressed to find a single laptop with no DVD burner - it's become so mainstream now that it's really weird Apple still hasn't fully adopted it across the line.

No LED, but now upgradable HD is maxed at 250gb. small speed bump, up to 4 gig RAM now though.

I'm content. Combo Drive is still around, wtf.

Looks like Apple is milking the cow, and we'll see major updates in January.

What do you think

Yeah, same for me on the UK store. How much better is the x3100 than GMA950 anyway? I heared there was quite a difference.

No x3100?

According to the specpage the new models do not sport the new x3100... I hope that's a typo?

Think the new Alum MB that was seen was probably something for MWSF, not a MB but a MBP or the new slim jim MBP. They have also added a few options when purchasing for software like iWork and Final Cut and Logic Express (or I think thats new) and Aperture as well.

Apple hasn't updated their product pages yet.

Here's a screenshot from the store

The "compare specs" page on the store website has been updated, just not the product info pages on apple.com

This isn't it

Relax. Apple never has a big update in November. The real update to the Macbooks will happen in the spring next year. They like to put the good stuff out after Christmas so the money keeps rolling in. They are going to have a good December anyways.

[Edit:] Check out the specs. They finally included a real graphics card for the mid and high end Macbook just for you gamers.

I'm guessing there will be new MBPs in january, but these MBs will remain the same for at least 6 months.

Any sign the Mini got a stealth update too?

I still can't believe the combodrive is still there. TOTALLY unacceptable.

It is on the compare specs link on the MacBook order section, until they update the Mac Hardware link.

At least they updated the share memory to 144MB.
