Apple Announces MacBook Updates at WWDC

Apple kicked off its annual World Wide Developer's Conference (WWDC) today by announcing updates to the MacBook line, featuring built-in batteries that last five years and apparently provide 7 hours of battery life. I suppose that after 5 years you could always just plug it in if the battery didn't hold a charge. MacBooks have been upgraded with faster processors, more RAM capacity (up to 8GB), bigger hard drives, and back-lit keyboards. The regular MacBook line includes only the white plastic MacBook ($999), and the MacBook Pro line now includes the 13", 15", and 17" aluminum unibody models. The MacBook Pro line also now features a built-in SD card reader--and it's about time! (Source: Ars Technica)
