Apple upgrades $999 white 13-inch MacBook with NVIDIA’s 9400M, faster processor, doubles base RAM

“Apple has without fanfare updated the white plastic MacBook to use NVIDIA’s 9400M platform,” Electronista reports.

“The upgrade gives the least expensive portable the same graphics performance as the aluminum model and upgrades the processor to the same 2GHz Core 2 Duo and 1,066MHz system bus as the mid-range version,” Electronista reports. “It also doubles the amount of minimum built-in memory to 2GB.”
