Apple Reduces the MacBook Black Tax.

step2_beautyshot_mbblk_060509.jpgUpdated MacBooks were released today, and the premium for the black model now stands at $100. The middle model upgraded with the larger 250GB hard drive is $1,399, making the cost of black an extra C note.

Before the update, the “black tax” was $125, primarily because the delta in drive size was smaller.

Meanwhile, having just bought a white MacBook (the middle model) six weeks ago — didn’t think I’d see an update so soon after Halloween’s — I can recommend it even more highly than before. I think this is one sweet machine.

With the faster Penryn processor, extra GB of RAM, and larger hard drive it will only be more so.


One thought on “Apple Reduces the MacBook Black Tax.

  1. I agree, the newer MacBooks add value to a product that is already one of the best in it’s class! However, for me, I shall invest in a new MacBook Pro as soon as possible. I really love the multi-touch track pad and the backlight keyboard, and not to mention…. the sheer power and beauty of the beast!
