Apple manages to create products that you lust for, and it is no different with its new MacBook, especially the gold edition.
Re-engineering a laptop is just not about the money and high-whiz engineering resources devoted to it, but also thinking out of the box; and Apple has done just that, ensuring you get a full-size laptop experience from its new MacBook, which is just 13.1 mm thin, weighs only 907 gm, has a full-size keyboard, offers nine hours of battery runtime and features a 12-inch retina display.
The MacBook’s 12-inch retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. Photos leap out in rich and vibrant colours, while videos look gorgeous. The screen runs at a maximum resolution of 2,304 x 1,440. The only thing that might bother some is the new 16:10 ratio.
In my opinion, Apple has always had the best trackpad on its MacBooks and MacBook Air, but its new MacBook Apple has a brand new ‘force touch’ track pad that is engineered to deliver a much more responsive and uniform click experience, irrespective of where you click. Also added to the touchpad is a tactile vibration that adds a sense of touch to what you see on the screen.
Interestingly, there is only a single USB-C port that can be used to charge the laptop, charge your devices, transfer data and even output videos. With its reversible design, the USB-C port is going to soon become a standard on most of the devices we use. There is also a headphone port that doubles up as an analogue and optical port.
The new MacBook runs on a 1.2Ghz dual core Intel Core M processor, with 8 Gigabytes of RAM and a 512 GB solid state drive.
It sells in silver, space grey and gold colour options.
