The MacBook

The MacBook, which has been pretty much just a placeholder since the introduction of the 13inch Macbook Pro, was also updated and allows Apple to finally have a decent offering in the sub-$1000 laptop segment. It benefits from all Apple's recent technology updates, starting with the Unibody enclosure, LED backlighting, multitouch trackpad and the long lasting non-replaceable battery.

The Mac mini

The server version also increases its storage capacity by dropping the SuperDrive.
