New MacBook unibody available todayApple has a new unibody MacBook, which is basically a glossy white version of the familiar 13-inch MacBook Pro and it’s in stores today for $999. The new plastic casing is built in the same way as the aluminum MacBook Pros. This 13-incher features an LED-backlit display, new glass multitouch trackpad, and a built-in 7 hour battery.

Some other features include a 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of RAM (8GB max), an NVIDIA 9400M GPU, 250GB hard drive and SuperDrive. And yes it looks just like all of the other MacBooks. We were kinda hoping for some new design.

MacBook Air survives plane crashBack in February, a Turkish Airways jet crashed in Amsterdam. Nine people were killed and 121 were injured. One passenger, Sefer Baris, along with his MacBook Air managed to survive the crash. Sefer was in seat number seven at the front of business class.

He was watching a movie when it happened. When the plane began to land he closed the Macbook and put it into it’s skin. Sefer broke his neck, while his MacBook just got a little warped. It’s bent and beat up, but booted up and is expected to recover.

UnibodyApple has had some success with their unibody MacBooks, so it makes sense that they would start considering the possibility of introducing unibody iPods in the future. That’s what this recently released patent application suggests.

A unibody iPod could mean a lighter, thinner and tougher iPod, plus they save money by using fewer parts. Otherwise, the iPod classic shown here remains pretty much the same, but “the final part looks like it was machined down from a large thick slab of material,” according to Apple.

TechRestore gives Unibody MacBook Pro a Matte FinishSo you want your notebook to stand out from the crowd, which is pretty tough these days. TechRestore might be your answer as they are offering a matte finish screen replacement service for owners of the 15″ unibody MacBook Pro. It’s a great move by TechRestore since users have complained that the glossy screens on the newer MacBook Pros are not as readable compared to the old ones, especially under sunlight.

In order to replace the super-shiny screen with a traditional matte screen, they’ll remove the glass screen cover and the glossy LCD screen, then replace them with a matte-finish screen with same specifications as the original. The service will cost $199 in the US, with a 24-hour turnaround installation of a new replacement LCD screen, free return shipping and a 1-year warranty on parts and labor.

17-inch unibody MacBook Pro with internal battery rumored for Macworld9to5Mac is reporting that a unibody, 17-inch MacBook Pro will be announced at Macworld. It would follow in the footsteps of the previously released unibody 13 and 15-inch models. The rumor has been independently confirmed by Apple Insider as well.

The news isn’t isn’t all that surprising. But what is surprising is that this model is expected to have a slim, extended-life, and a very non-removable battery built in. Obviously that’s disappointing. Non-removable batteries are pretty damn lame. Way to go Apple.
