Apple releases new MacBooks and MacBook Pros--300GB HD!

Okay well you'd figure that after five years of owning a Mac that I'd realize these guys continually make you hate your machine when something new is released. It's very bittersweet to be a Mac owner; they release some amazing products, but they upgrade often and substantially, making you wish you'd maybe waited a little longer to get the most powerful, up-to-date system. Damn you Apple, why can't you be more like the rest, where adding 512mb RAM after three years is an accomplishment?

Anyway, having said that, TUAW reveals that "New MacBook and MacBook Pros [are] now available":

"Well, the rumors were right on target -- new MacBook and MacBook Pros are finally here! Unlike the very minor updates in November, this refresh features across the board speed bumps, bigger hard drives, more stock RAM and for the MacBook Pro, a few new features sure to make every Apple fan's mouth water. Both lines are now featuring the new Penryn Core 2 Duo chipset, with the higher end MacBook Pro models taking advantage of a spectacular 6MB of L2 cache."

The report goes on to say that the Pro has an available 300 GB hard drive, which five years ago would've made a laptop about the size of a PC tower.
