The MacBook line has also been reworked. The new devices come with a brilliant 13-inch widescreen display. The entry level model is a white MacBook with 2.1 GHz processor and 120 gigabytes of hard drive space. The lowest price model is now 50 dollars cheaper than before, but still does not include a built-in DVD burner.
