The first model was presented on May 16, 2006 and was the successor to iBooks and the 12″ PowerBook. The original MacBook was equipped with an Intel Core Duo and later an Intel Core 2 Duo processor and had a 13-inch display. On July 20, 2011, the sale of the MacBook was largely discontinued (does not apply to the MacBook Pro). It was still available until February 2012 for educational institutions. The MacBook Air replaced the MacBook as the cheapest entry-level model. In March 2015, the name MacBook was revived by Apple, whereby the new MacBook has little in common with the one produced from 2006 to 2011 except for the name.
