    I just left Apple's website and the WHITE Macbook now shows the nVidia 9400M graphics in place of the Intel GMA X3100 chipset. Can anyone confirm this is not a typo?

    If the specs are true, then $999 is a heck of a deal. I might consider getting one of those instead of one of the upgraded minis.

    Has anyone actually taken delivery of a white Macbook recently who can confirm that it really does ship with the 9400M graphics now?

    It is definitely the NVidia graphics, I'm ordering one myself along with a Mini (only because I have a discount voucher)

    It's a lot of bang for your buck isn't it?
    I've pointed it out to a few people at work looking to buy a new computer but complaining that 'macs are so expensive'..

    Happened last month or the month before. It was announced on front page here.

    Does anyone know if these are available in the Apple stores or website only? It'll cost me another $117 and change in sales tax to ship to my house fully loaded but if I can get it from the Apple store, I can cross the state line and get it at an Apple store where they have no sales tax. ;)

    They've been available at the Apple store since they were updated silently on the page. There has been about 3 dozen threads already on the upgraded nVidia Whitebook...

    This all happened back in January...

    You can obtain one anywhere Old Mac Geezer sir.Although I'd get mine from Apple if you have relatives in college or university-for the rather nice discount available ;)
