    In the Aaple Store the Macbook is marked are "New".

    I've chekced the specifications and I can't find anything that has changed (was hoping for firewire or a speed bump). Just an error or did I miss something?

    I think they just haven't updated the site to remove the "New" label.

    I can't see a difference on the mb either.

    Was a 256gig SSD always an option on the mbp? It could be "new" because it has new options, not necessarily a new base item. Except the 2.53 is now the 2.66 as has been mentioned in other threads

    Lucky I got the base 2.4 MBP…that's stayed the same from what I see.

    At the moment the only things I see 'new' are mini, iMac, and MacPro.

    No firewire on the macbook aluminum.

    I thought the "New" referred to the recent (and quiet) updates to the White MB ?
    It got a CPU downgrade although now has 1066FSB, DDR3 and 4GB (max) IIRC.

    DDR3? I don't think so but it did also get the same nVidia graphics as the aluminum MB's.

    I haven't been paying a whole lot of attention since I purchased my unibody (2.0) MacBook in October but it appears that the build-to-order options for RAM and HDD are cheaper now: $100 to upgrade to 4 GB RAM and $75 to upgrade to 250GB HDD. If I'm wrong, I missed out.

    RAM upgrade is cheaper, and they added the 256 SSD option. That's all I can see. Which is good, because I got mine a few days ago. :)
