Maybe Apple ran out of the old motherboards? 

Apple, a few days ago (sneaky little bastards), updated the polycarbonate white MacBook’s specs pretty significantly. 

No one noticed. 

Strangely, even with the NVIDIA 9400M chipset, the White MacBook still uses the Mini DVI Port from the look of the side.  Also, while the RAM has been upgraded to 2GB (joy!) it is DDR2 and not DDR3 like the Unibody MacBook.  Bluetooth moves from 2.0 to 2.1.

These won’t be able to power a 30 inch screen like the Unibodies as well because Mini DVI only supports resolutions of 1920×1200.

Oh, and don’t worry, Firewire is still there.
