May.16.06 | About: Apple Inc. (AAPL)

Today Apple announced the availablity of a 13-inch, Intel Duo Core-based version of its low-end MacBook notebook. Pricing is $1099-$1499. Response from Bear Stearns analyst Andy Neff:

As with the iMac (compellingly priced compared to comparable Wintel systems)... MacBook appears to be very compellingly priced with similarly configured notebook from Sony ($1,590) and others, although Sony is about a pound lighter than AAPL... over time we expect AAPL to fill out its product line (notebook and desktop) with lower-priced entry-level systems. Stock impact: positive for AAPL
