Details of a new plastic Apple MacBook have leaked, with an updated processor and boosted graphics. The new MacBook – which is identified as MacBook7,1 – packs a 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2GB of DDR3 memory and NVIDIA GeForce 320M 256MB graphics, up from the previous iteration’s 2.26GHz CPU and GeForce 9400M GPU.

If authentic, it leaves only the MacBook Air still to be refreshed in recent months, after Apple updated the MacBook Pro range with new processors and graphics options. No word on exact release dates that this stage.
