Updated Macbooks Outperform Their Unibody Counterparts

Illustration for article titled Updated Macbooks Outperform Their Unibody Counterparts

So basically you pay $300 for the new trackpad, unibody construction, and LED screen, 90GB of memory, a bit faster RAM, and... a slower processor! Or you could pay $600 more for an additional illuminated keyboard and .4 GHz.

Something seems off here...
