The goal with MacBook was to do the impossible: engineer a full‑size experience into the thinnest, lightest Mac notebook yet. And not only is it compact — it’s more powerful than ever. The new MacBook delivers up to 20 per cent faster performance with new seventh‑generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors, and up to 50 per cent faster SSD storage.1

in every millimetre.
Now equipped with seventh-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook is snappier than ever. From daily tasks like launching apps and opening files to more advanced computing, you can power through your day thanks to faster SSDs and Turbo Boost processing up to 3.6GHz.
Squeezing the most
And out of it.
Each component inside MacBook has been meticulously designed to get the most out of an incredibly thin and light enclosure. Apple chose powerful yet highly efficient processors, and optimised macOS to draw on the processor using as little power as possible. Because no fan is needed to cool the computer, it has more room for battery cells to support you on the go, all day long.
Inside you’ll find seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors with 14-nanometre process technology. This lets MacBook expertly combine energy efficiency with the performance needed to take on all sorts of tasks.
MacBook was built for virtually silent performance. Its processor runs on just 5 watts of power, which generates less heat and eliminates the need for a fan to cool the computer. Instead, the logic board is seated on an anisotropic graphite sheet that helps disperse any heat. So you won’t hear a thing while your MacBook is hard at work.
Storage and memory
Though its components are tiny, MacBook has an impressive capacity to store the files and run the applications you need every day. With up to 16GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory and up to 512GB of SSD storage, you get an amazingly thin and light notebook with snappy performance.
To achieve all-day battery life, every millimetre of space inside MacBook was used. An innovative terraced battery cell was custom-shaped to fit the specific contours of the enclosure. The result is 35 per cent more battery cell capacity than would have been possible before.2

A Retina display that takes
everything to the edge.
The stunning 12-inch Retina display on MacBook is truly something to behold. With over 3 million pixels and edge-to-edge glass, every image leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. All on an amazingly thin Retina display.3
A keyboard refined
for an even
A comfortable, full-size keyboard is an essential part of any notebook. To fit one into MacBook, Apple designed a keyboard from the ground up — including each key and its underlying mechanism. This makes the whole keyboard not only much thinner, but also more comfortable and precise, so your fingers feel right at home.
The Force Touch trackpad.
Press a little deeper,
do a lot more.
The pressure-sensing capabilities of the Force Touch trackpad allow you to tell your MacBook what you want it to do based on subtle differences in pressure. Click anywhere to perform a variety of actions in different apps, all on the same surface, without lifting a finger. And the Taptic Engine provides haptic feedback that adds a sense of touch to what you see on the screen.
Precise control at
Multi-Touch gestures make it easy and intuitive to interact with your MacBook. Scroll in any direction, swipe through web pages, pinch, rotate or Force click to unlock other useful capabilities.
Connect to everything
Anywhere you go.
With powerful technologies in an incredibly compact enclosure, MacBook is designed to fit perfectly into a world where just about anything you do with a notebook can be done over the air. For those moments when you do need to plug in, USB-C packs a ton of capability into one small and convenient port.
USB-C. Singularly versatile.
The USB-C port puts everything you need in a port all in one place. It provides charging, speedy USB data transfer (up to 5 Gbps) and video output in a reversible design that’s one-third the size of a USB 3 port, giving you the flexibility to easily connect your favourite devices.
Fully equipped for
a wireless world.
MacBook takes full advantage of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technologies — and with innovative Apple software and services that let you get the most out of them, you can wirelessly connect to the web, transfer files, organise your photos, listen to music and more.
macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. macOS High Sierra brings new forward-looking technologies and enhanced features to your Mac. It’s macOS at its highest level yet.

Performance With great
MacBook Pro elevates the notebook to a whole new level of performance and portability. Wherever your ideas take you, you’ll get there faster than ever with high-performance processors and memory, advanced graphics, amazingly fast storage and more.
Memory Run more. Wait less.
For faster performance when working with large files, or running multiple pro apps or virtual machines, the 15-inch MacBook Pro can now be configured with up to 32GB of high-performance 2400MHz DDR4 memory.

Graphics Eye-opening graphics
MacBook Pro features a Radeon Pro discrete GPU in every 15-inch model, combining impressive power with remarkable power efficiency. And now Apple has paired each discrete GPU with 4GB of GDDR5 memory as standard, giving you fluid, real-time performance for pro tasks like rendering 3D titles in Final Cut Pro X. The 13‑inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar features powerful integrated graphics with 128MB of embedded DRAM — twice as much as the previous generation — which accelerates graphics tasks. That means more time for what matters most — creating amazing work.
Thunderbolt 3 The most powerful
and versatile port ever.
Thunderbolt 3 combines ultra-high bandwidth with the ultra‑versatility of the USB-C industry standard to create one revved‑up universal port. It integrates data transfer, charging and video output in a single connector, delivering up to 40Gb/s of throughput for twice the bandwidth of Thunderbolt 2. Both sizes of MacBook Pro are available with up to four ports, so you can do all of that from either side. Existing devices are easily connected with a cable or adapter. And Thunderbolt 3 is reversible, so no matter how you plug in, it’s always the right way up.
Touch Bar More ways to be productive. Always within reach.
The Touch Bar replaces the function keys that have long occupied the top of your keyboard with something much more versatile and capable.¹ It changes automatically based on what you’re doing to show you relevant tools that are intuitive to use — system controls like volume and brightness, interactive ways to adjust or browse through content, and intelligent typing features like emoji and predictive text, just to name a few.
Tap it. Hold it.
Flick it. Slide it.
Familiar gestures make it easy to use the Touch Bar. Tap to expand the Control Strip, flick to adjust volume and brightness or slide to rewind while watching a film.

Many of the built-in apps on your MacBook Pro have Touch Bar controls that make common actions like sending an email or formatting a document even easier. The Touch Bar changes to match the app you’re using, bringing these shortcuts front and centre. And third-party apps can take advantage of the Touch Bar as well.

The Retina display in MacBook Pro is the best ever in a Mac notebook. It features bright LED backlighting and a high contrast ratio, delivering deep blacks and bright whites. It supports wide P3 colour for even more vibrant greens and reds than with sRGB. And the 13- and 15-inch models with Touch Bar feature True Tone technology. The white balance automatically adjusts to match the colour temperature of the light around you — for a more natural viewing experience. MacBook Pro has beautifully balanced, high-fidelity sound that takes listening to new levels with wide dynamic range and more bass for maximum boom. And the speakers are connected directly to system power, enabling greater peak amplification. So you can mix a track on the fly, edit video on location or enjoy a film on the go.
Keyboard and Trackpad Your workspace just got quieter.
The MacBook Pro keyboard features a butterfly mechanism — providing four times more key stability than a traditional scissor mechanism, along with greater comfort. The 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Touch Bar now feature a keyboard with a quieter typing experience. And the spacious Force Touch trackpad gives your fingers plenty of room to gesture and click.
