MacBook 13" (Late 2006)

MacBook 13" (Late 2006)
Device type MacBook
Model identifier MacBook2,1
Release year 2006
Processor 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
Display 13.3"

Architecture details:

  • CPU: 64-bit
  • EFI: 32-bit
  • Graphics: 32-bit

OS Support:

  • Shipped: Mac OS X Tiger 10.4.6 (Intel)
  • Maximum: Current OS X Lion
  • Windows: XP, Vista (until Boot Camp 3.2/Snow Leopard) [32-bit only]

The Late 2006 MacBook family, debuting in late October 2006 with several other Mac models, were effectively the first Macs to deploy the 64-bit Core2 Duo.

However, these models remained on the mostly 32-bit GM945 logic set of the first-generation models; they therefore cannot address more than 3 GB of RAM even when more is physically present, due to a documented bug involving memory-mapped I/O (MMIO)

Other Notes:

  • Includes AirPort Extreme with 802.11n draft 2.0. Users can purchase a US$3.00 utility to upgrade the radio firmware and enable 802.11n support.
  • Earliest known qualifying model for Lion and not Mountain Lion
