Apple MacBook white dropped from Mac line-up

Apple's MacBook Air refresh has seen the white plastic MacBook cut from the product line-up

Apple has seemingly scrapped the hugely popular Apple MacBook white from its range of iconic computers with the ultra-thin MacBook Air looking to have replaced the plastic-clad machine.

Following the official unveiling of the refreshed range of MacBook Airs, Mac Minis and the new Mac OS X Lion operating system, Apple’s online store returned online from maintenance with the former MacBook devices omitted from the line-up.

Whilst the MacBook was an iconic member of the Apple family the entry level machine had become dated as of late with the aluminium encased MacBook Pro and MacBook Air giving the MacBook’s plastic aesthetic a cheapened look.

"It was the most popular mac and an iconic piece of kit," said MacFormat editor Graham Barlow. "I'm sorry to see 'Apple white' removed from Apple's Mac line-up."

With the base model MacBook Air now £849 the MacBook has been carefully squeezed out of the product roll call by Apple although the Cupertino-based firm has yet to formally confirm its culling.

Will the MacBook Air make a suitable replacement to the iconic Apple MacBook white? Let us know what you think via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
