Building on Apple’s impeccable reputation for sleek, desirable laptops that brilliantly combine power, aesthetics and usability, the new 12 inch MacBook does all of the above, arguably better than ever before.
These slim, stylish laptop certainly tick aesthetics box. Available in shimmering gold, silver and space grey finishes, the new Apple MacBook exudes sophistication and the immediate impression of exceptional build quality. It is also extremely slim – just 13.1 mm thick - and only weighs 900 grams.
Such svelte proportions mean the MacBook is effortlessly portable, simply slide it into your bag and you’ll hardly know it’s there. But while the MacBook may be stylish and slight it most certainly isn’t an example of style over substance and nor should its modest proportions be taken to indicate a lack of power. In fact the MacBook packs impressive processing power in to its compact body thanks in part to the revolutionary new Intel® Core™ M processor, which is considerably smaller than comparable processors and doesn’t require fan cooling.
All of which means that the MacBook is able to offer significantly more oomph into its slender frame than you’d have though possible. Among the MacBook’s other standout feature is the new Force Touch trackpad, which allows you to click anywhere on the pad and get different results depending on how hard you press, so you can activate double and left clicks simply by pressing slightly harder.
