White MacBook discontinued

Apple on Wednesday confirmed that it has discontinued the entry-level, white polycarbonate MacBook, making the new, $999 11-inch Macbook Air the least expensive in the family.

The white MacBook has already been removed from Apple's product page, but if you're feeling nostalgic for the white plastic chassis, you can always buy a refurbished, year-old white MacBook for $849.

Although Apple has been using polycarbonate plastic—marketed as a tough plastic used in bulletproof glass—since the dawn of the iBook, Apple dyed it white for its first MacBook in 2006. But with the launch of the MacBook Pros in an aluminum unibody, rumors surfaced that Apple would discontinue the white polycarbonate MacBook, especially when the 13-inch model went Pro.
