When we first posted our review of Apple’s new MacBooks, we didn’t include a mouse rating or benchmark results for the white 2.0GHz model. The reason for this omission? While we were able to get our hands on the 1.83GHz and black 2GHz MacBooks fairly quickly, it took a little longer to track down that third model.
Well, the white 2GHz configuration arrived finally, so we put the laptop through our battery of tests. You might think, “Why did they bother?” After all, aside from the case color, the only other difference between the white and black 2GHz MacBook is the hard drive—a 60GB 5,400-rpm drive in the white model and an 80GB, 5,400-rpm one in the black. And if you were to look at their scores on our overall system performance testing tool, Speedmark, you would find data to back up that position. |
