It now also has a multi-touch trackpad made of glass and a not-changable Apple battery that lasts 7 hours when fully charged. The cheapest model costs $999 and is available as of today.

“The new MacBook includes many of the great features found on the innovative MacBook Pro, such as an LED-backlit display, glass Multi-Touch trackpad and built-in long-life battery,” said Philip Schiller. “With the only lineup of notebooks all featuring unibody enclosures, LED-backlit displays and long-life battery technology, there’s never been a better time to switch to a Mac.”
