All the talk ahead of today's Apple launch was of a new MacBook or MacBook Pro. Well knock us down with a waft of a MacBook Air if Apple hasn't gone and brought out both.

Faster processors and multi-touch are the two big additions, but there's been no design tweaking – both models sport the same cases of old.

The Pro (pictured) gets the biggest overhaul, with new Core2Duo chips in 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz guises, extra memory, capacious 200 or 250GB hard drives and meaty NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT graphics cards with up to 512MB on board. The 17in models also get the option of a MacBook Air-esque LED backlit display.

Our fingers are especially pleased to see the newly-stretched touchpad lifted from the Air, for multi-touch shenanigans.

The new MacBook doesn't get the touchpad stretch, but hard drives have been put on the rack to go from 120GB all the way up to a Pro-matching 250GB. The only other update is the processor bump to 2.1GHz and 2.4GHz – otherwise it's the same 'Book we know and love.

Oh, and if all that wasn't excitement enough for one day, Apple's also announced that the new 2GB Shuffle is now shipping. Sorry, we should have told you to sit down before we dropped that bombshell.
