Apple CEO Tim Cook announced a new model of the MacBook, refreshing the existing line with a 12-inch Retina Display standard. The new MacBook is 13.1mm thin, which is actually 24 percent slimmer than the latest MacBook Air available in the market.
With a logic board that is reduced by 67 percent in terms of size, the new MacBook is the company’s first-ever fanless laptop. The refreshed device is powered by an Intel Core M processor, and renders up to nine hours of web-browsing experience on full charge, while the video-playback extends to 10 hours. It’s also the first laptop to include support for USB-C, which allows you to connect USB, HDMI, VGA and Power Source through the same port, accompanied by a headphone port – just two ports onboard.
Interestingly, the new MacBook introduces a new keyboard that’s stretched closer to the edge, and includes individual backlight for each key. And the trackpad gets “Force Touch” technology, which provides tactic feedbacks to the one who uses it. Moreover, you can also set the trackpad to read hard-pressed instructions – Force-Clicks.
The new MacBook comes in three different color variants – silver, space grey and gold – and starts with 256GB of storage. The new MacBook ships on April 10 starting at $1,299.
