Updated MacBook supports audio-out via Mini DisplayPort

updated 01:05 pm EDT, Wed May 19, 2010

Joins current MacBook Pros, iMacs

The updated plastic MacBook is compatible with audio-out via Mini DisplayPort, Apple support documents note. The feature can greatly simplify playing video through an HDTV, since it allows the use of just one HDMI connection, instead of separate audio and video cables. A Mini DisplayPort-to-HDMI adapter is nevertheless required.

The change reflects updates to the rest of Apple's computers, including the MacBook Pro and the iMac. Conspicuously missing from the list is the Mac mini, Apple's cheapest computer. The system is popular as a media center set-top, since it can not only output better video than an Apple TV, but play DVDs, hold more hard drive space and run a complete Mac OS X desktop.

    No. One would think such a change to their pro or mini computers would be more of an indication, not some lame laptop.
