Default White Macbook Update

Apple did it again! The White macbook once again was quietly updated with a slightly faster processor @ 2.13 ghz, faster memory@800mhz, and a bigger hard drive (160gb). The faster memory seems like a nice addition. Does this speed bump mean that the unibody macbook really is getting an update at WWDC? Or that the alumimum macbook is being added to the macbook pro category?

Guess Apple's sales weren't quite good enough. Maybe they should've just made the low end version the blackbook....

My System Specs


Probably just discontinued old skus and steamlined inventory. I am no Apple forecaster but might as well have all your ducks in a row in these leaner times. My interpretation of the 1st Whitebook update after the unibodies came out was because there was no Firewire on the unibody. Apple has a lot of customers using firewire as they were big on it at one time. They basically gave their firewire loyalsts the big finger with the unibody. Nothing new for Apple to do that though. :\
