Apple has just sent out the press release for its brand new MacBook. This update to the line has been given a polycarbonate unibody design for extra durability. It has a glass multi-touch trackpad, an LED backlit display, and a built-in 7 hour battery. This notebook is Apple's attempt to answer the netbook, both in terms of battery life and portability. It's available for $999 now.

The new MacBook weighs 4.7 pounds, and has a very sleek design. It packs some serious hardware inside its small frame, though. We're talking a 2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of RAM, a 250 GB HD, and an Nvidia Geforce 9400M integrated graphics card. All in all, that's a pretty hot little package.
