The MacBook "Late 2007 Core 2 Duo/Santa Rosa" series shares the same easy to upgrade case design as previous MacBook systems, and connectivity likewise includes AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet, a FireWire "400" port, two USB 2.0 ports, optical digital audio in/out, and video out capabilities (mini-DVI) that supports an external display.

The MacBook "Late 2007 Core 2 Duo/Santa Rosa" and earlier models also share the same "scrolling TrackPad", built-in iSight video camera, Apple Remote for use with Apple Front Row software, "MagSafe" power connector, "flush against the bed" keyboard that does not touch the screen (but sans embedded numeric keypad), and "no moving parts" magnetic latch that "catches without a catch".

However, the MacBook "Late 2007 Core 2 Duo/Santa Rosa" models have substantial internal improvements compared to the models each replaced -- with faster "Santa Rosa" based motherboards with 800 MHz frontside buses (up from 667 MHz), Intel GMA X3100 integrated graphics (up from the Intel GMA 950), and official support for 4 GB of RAM.

Like its immediate predecessors in the "Late 2007" MacBook series, the keyboard lacks an integrated "numeric keypad", but unlike previous MacBook systems, the Apple Remote was a US$19 option rather than standard.

Compared to the models each replaced, the MacBook "Early 2008 Core 2 Duo/Penryn" models are powered by modestly faster and more energy-efficient 45 nm "Penryn" processors -- compared to 65 nm "Merom" processors in the "Late 2007" series -- albeit with smaller 3 MB level 2 caches (compared to 4 MB). The "Early 2008 Core 2 Duo/Penryn" models additionally shipped equipped with larger hard drives and twice the default RAM (in the 2.4 GHz models).

[500] Apple MacBook (Late 2008)

MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13-inch (Unibody)

Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13-inch (Unibody)
With a black and silver design reminiscent of the Aluminum iMac models, the "Unibody" MacBook "Core 2 Duo" (Late 2008/Aluminum) models introduced an all new case design milled from a single block of aluminum providing greater strength, reduced weight, and a superior finish than previous systems.

The Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13-Inch (Unibody - Late 2008/Aluminum) features a 45 nm "Penryn" 2.0 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (P7350), with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 2 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) installed in pairs (two 1 GB modules), a 160 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, an 8X DL "SuperDrive", a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M "graphics processor with 256 MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory", integrated iSight, and an LED-backlit 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution).

Connectivity includes AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, optical digital/analog audio in/out, and a new "Mini DisplayPort" that supports an external display at 2560x1600. It does not include a Firewire "400" port.

In addition to the new case design, compared to the "Early 2008/Penryn" models that these replaced, the "Unibody" line offers a new "no button" glass "multi-touch" trackpad with support for new "four finger" gestures and programmable "zones", a faster architecture with a faster system bus, faster memory, and a faster graphics processor, as well as an LED-backlit display. The higher-end model -- the MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13" (Unibody) -- also has a backlit keyboard, but this model does not.

[512] Apple MacBook (Mid 2009)

MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.13 13-inch (Mid 2009,White)

Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.13 13-inch (White-09)
Quietly unveiled without a press release -- just like the model it replaced -- the Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.13 13-Inch (White - Mid-2009) features a 45 nm "Penryn" 2.13 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (P7450), with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 2 GB of 800 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-6400) installed in pairs (two 1 GB modules), a 160 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, an 8X DL "SuperDrive", a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M "graphics processor with 256 MB of SDRAM shared with main memory", and a 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution).

The MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.13 13" (White - Mid-2009) shares the same white polycarbonate case as the MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13" (White - Early 2009) that it replaced and connectivity is the same as well with AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Gigabit Ethernet, a FireWire "400" port, two USB 2.0 ports, optical digital audio in/out, and video out capabilities (mini-DVI) that supports an external display. The hard drive is larger and the memory is faster. Interestingly, Apple also officially claims that this model provides 5 hours of battery life (up from 4.5 hours on the model replaced).

Internally, this system has quite a bit in common with the MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.0 13" (Unibody) and is equipped with the same NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics, but uses a faster processor and slower RAM (800 MHz DDR2 compared to 1066 MHz DDR3 in the "Unibody" models).

[579] Apple MacBook (Late 2009)

MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.26 13-inch (Uni/Late 09)

Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.26 13-inch (Uni/Late 09)
The MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.26 13-Inch (White Polycarbonate "Unibody" - Late 2009) unveiled a new "glossy white unibody" case design -- modeled after the previously introduced "Unibody" MacBook and MacBook Pro models -- but uses polycarbonate rather than aluminum and has a "non-skid" rubberized bottom surface.

Like the aluminum "Unibody" models, this system also has a four-finger "multi-touch" glass trackpad and an integrated battery design that is not intended to be replaced by the end user. Apple reports that this battery design increases runtime, and as a result, this model provides "up to" 7 hours compared to 5 hours for the model it replaced.

This model is configured with a 45 nm "Penryn" 2.26 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (P7550) -- with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip -- a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 2 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) installed in pairs (two 1 GB modules), a 250 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, and an 8X DL "SuperDrive". It also features a NVIDIA GeForce 9400M "graphics processor with 256 MB of SDRAM shared with main memory" and a 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix LED-backlit "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution).

Connectivity includes AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, a single audio in/out port, and a Mini DisplayPort that supports an external display at 2560x1600. It does not have a Firewire port or IR to support a remote.

[584] Apple MacBook (Mid 2010)

MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13-inch (Mid-2010)

Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13-inch (Mid-2010)
The MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.4 13-Inch (White Polycarbonate "Unibody" - Mid-2010) features a 2.4 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (P8600) -- with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip -- a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, a 1066 MHz frontside bus, 2 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 SDRAM (PC3-8500) installed in pairs (two 1 GB modules), a 250 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive, and an 8X DL "SuperDrive." For graphics, it has a NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics processor with 256 MB of SDRAM "shared with main memory" driving a 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix LED-backlit "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution).

Like its predecessor, this model uses a polycarbonate "glossy white unibody" case design with a "non-skid" rubberized bottom surface. However, external improvements compared to its predecessor include a new "inertial" multi-touch trackpad and a redesigned "MagSafe" power safe connector.

Internally, like its predecessor, it has an integrated battery design that is not intended to be replaced by the end user, but battery life has been increased to an estimated 10 hours of runtime. It has a faster processor and improved graphics as well.

Connectivity includes AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n), Gigabit Ethernet, two USB 2.0 ports, a single audio in/out port, and a Mini DisplayPort that passes an audio as well as a video signal and supports an external display at 2560x1600. It does not have a Firewire port or IR to support a remote.
