The shiny new Apple Macbook
Apple has just unveiled its new MacBook, which proves to be innovative in many ways. As the lightest and thinnest Apple laptop, it is easy and convenient to take everywhere. It also features several new innovations in design to make it more practical for users on the go.
At only two pounds, you will hardly even notice that you are carrying the new MacBook. It is also just 0.52 inches thick, which means it takes up very little space in a bag or when you are carrying it. Part of this lighter design comes from having only one port for everything, including USB ports and power. The keyboard is also thinner with keys that are wider. All of this combines to create an ultra-thin, ultra-stylish device that offers the ultimate in portability.
Stylish and Spectacular
Choose the gold or space gray colors as well as the traditional silver for the new laptop. The looks of the MacBook isn’t the only stunning aspect of the laptop. It is also designed to amaze you with the superior 2304 x 1440 resolution that makes images almost jump off the screen. No longer will you have to settle for images that are average or even good. This high-resolution screen also comes with the Retina Display which will enhance your images, streaming videos and other graphics.
You can select between two processors to get the speed and power you want. The first is a 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor that can be boosted up to 2.4GHz. The second is slightly bigger at 1.2GHz with the ability to boost up to 2.6GHz. Both come with 4 MB of shared L3 cache.
Battery Power and Operating System
Another change on the new Apple MacBook is the extended battery life. It lasts up to nine hours of surfing on the Internet or up to 10 hours of playing movies. It comes with a 39.7-watt-hour lithium-polymer battery that is built in. Users can take this laptop with them and not have to worry about charging it until they get back home. Students and professionals alike will enjoy this benefit for improved performance and convenience. Not only is the MacBook lighter than previous models, it can easily travel for the day without taking the charger along.
The new MacBook uses OS X Yosemite that is easy to use. It allows your iOS devices to interact with your laptop and includes enhancements to many apps. Some of the apps included with this system include:
- iCloud Drive
- Mail Drop
- Spotlight Search
- Safari Power Save
- And much more
The 12-inch MacBook offers improvements from the previous Macbook Air models with a lightweight design that is perfect for the users who are always on the go. It provides the usability and features they need while making it more convenient to take along. This device blurs the lines between laptop and portable device with the perfect size and features to cover all of the bases. I believe the road warrior who has been waiting for Apple to release a new ultraportable is going to be impressed when it finally arrives for pre-order on April 10th.
Apple states that the new MacBook gets all-day battery life. I will be testing and reviewing it when i get my review unit. The MacBook starts at $1299 for a model with a 1.1 GHz dual-core Intel Core M, 8 GB of memory (RAM) and 256 GB of storage via an SSD drive. The higher end model is equipped with a 1.2 GHz processor and a 512 GB drive via SSD and is priced at $1599.
Stay tuned for my full review when this item releases. Will you be ordering one?
