Apple debuts entry-level 13" MacBook at $1099

Cupertino (CA) - It was almost a sure bet, when Apple unveiled its new Intel Core Duo-based notebook computers three months ago, that the "Pro" designation beside "MacBook" indicated an entry-level model was on the way. Sure enough, Apple has come through today with a 13" "non-Pro" MacBook, available now, with much of the same features as the 15" models, and a price tag that finally flirts with the three-digit range.
