    Default Difference between '08 macbook models?

    Hi guys, just a quick question-

    Does anyone know if there was any difference between the early and late '08 white macbooks?

    I bought a late '08 about a month ago for $1399 (refurb), and today I noticed that the refurb store had the early '08 model for $1299, and for the life of me I couldn't find any difference between them after combing the specs?

    Not going to buy another one but if they are the same that's a good buy for someone else at $1299!

    yeah no real difference.

    Now if it was between a late /early '08 vs early '09 - then you'd be crazy not to go for the '09 (with the dedicated vid card and DDR3)

    Err no - not dedicated (the Nvidia 9400M still steals RAM - it's inbuilt) and it's still rocking DDR2 Ram. all that's changed is the Intel > Nvidia graphics.
