Following a report just yesterday claiming that Apple appeared to be phasing out the white MacBook in favor of the entry-level MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models, Apple today has done just that, removing the machine from the list of product lines on its Mac page.
The white MacBook had been sold for $999, a price matched by the entry-level MacBook Air, but the MacBook Air offers a smaller display, less storage and connectivity, and no optical drive. On the flip side, the MacBook Air of course offers a sleeker profile and increased portability, and is more in line with Apple's current design aesthetic.
Update: The white MacBook is not officially dead yet, as Apple is continuing to sell the machine to educational institutions only.

Oh well. Onward and upward.
Better than the crappy intel one. And macbook airs aren't for serious use. It ain't a replacement. 2gb of ram for 1000$ that's nuts.
Definite shame to see it go but it was inevitable. I can't see the lowest MBA picking up the slack though, it's far too limited by comparison.
