Apple is currently holding it’s “Spring Forward” event in San Francisco today and unveiled a new 12-inch MacBook, which comes in gold and is much thinner than previous versions.

The new MacBook is based upon the design of the current MacBook Air but has smaller bezels and is 24% thinner than the current crop of MacBook Airs and weighs just 2 pounds, drawing a comparison to the current iPad. The screen sits between the current MacBook Airs at 12-inches which is 2304 x 1440 (predictably dubbed Retina), effectively creating a Retina MacBook Air. Apple says the laptop will get 9 hours of web use.

Apple made a big deal of the full-size keyboard in the device during their event, touting it as “all new” utilizing the Butterfly keyboard system. Apple has, in their own words, reinvented the keyboard. Alongside this, Apple has also redesigned the MacBook’s trackpad, creating a new “Force Touch” system which works in a similar way to Apple’s touch screens, removing the “clicking” in put.

The insides of the new MacBook have also been changed, creating a new fan-less laptop that is predominantly filled with batteries, giving the laptop “all day” battery life (9 hours of Web searching, 10 hours of battery). In terms of connectivity, Apple is pushing the envelope here, using only a USB Type-C port, which incorporates HDMI, USB and other connectivity standards into one, reversible port.

  1. I don’t get it. It’s like Apple used to be fat and can’t stop but keep trying to lose more weight.
    1 port for a laptop….it’s a joke.
