More details on the new MacBooks

Following up this morning's Crave post about Apple's new Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro, we've got some more detailed spec information for the nuts-and-bolts types out there.

The features are largely the same as the previous Core Duo models' and include built-in AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth, FireWire 800 and 400 ports, an ExpressCard expansion card slot, and a DVI video output. Also standard are the illuminated keyboard and the motion-sensing technology that stops the hard drive if the system is dropped. Apple claims that the new models, which have 2.16GHz and 2.33GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs, are up to 39 percent faster than the older 2.16GHz Core Duo MacBook.

Also released today is a new version of Apple's MagSafe detachable power qdapter. Called the MagSafe Airline Power Adapter, this $59 accessory connects to power ports in airline seats.
