13" White Macbook gets a sneaky upgrade


Bought a Macbook recently? Start kicking yourself, because Apple has just announced a sneaky upgrade to the 13″ white MacBook which pumps up the capabilities of the diminutive, but popular, machine to the standards of its unibody compatriots.

The machine pumps the processor up to a Core 2 Duo with faster 1,066MHz FSB, a doubling of RAM (2GB, rather than one) and a considerably nicer integrated graphics unit. Bluetooth’s upgraded from 2.0 to 2.1, too.

It hasn’t hit the UK store yet, only the US one, but I suspect us Brits will get the same upgrade within a matter of days. In the meantime, if you were planning a purchase, it might be worth waiting a day or two until the UK store updates too. Price is still the same.

Fortunately, the new Tibida comes with a handy visual guide that explains exactly how you’re supposed to tell what the time is with it.

Here’s how it works:
