Apple has upgraded the MacBooks that you can buy in store, with new processor and hard drive options. However, it is only beginning to realise the problem it is having with discolouration on the white MacBook.

There is a new white MacBook, which you can now buy off the shelf with an 80GB hard drive and 1GB of RAM. The new black MacBook, which already had an 80GB drive, now can come off the shelf with 1GB of RAM. Both are the same price as if you'd specced them up at the Apple Store Online, at $1449 and $1599 respectively - don't forget the $150 premium for the black colour!

Meanwhile, Cnet has a report that looks into the issues with bad plastic on the white notebooks. Buyers are finding that the white plastic around the wrist rest and the keyboard can turn pink or green after a couple of week's use.

Apple hasn't quite decided on a unified approach to the problem, replacing some people's notebooks but not others.
