We have new MacBook to the line-up from Apple’s event. And this time Apple announced MacBook Gold, MacBook Space Gray and also the MacBook Silver. Apple claims that “Mac notebook sales have grown 21% over the last year, while total industry sales have fallen.”
The new MacBook is now lighter than ever, its just 2.0 pounds and is 24% thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air. It has also got an all-new, full-size keyboard that’s been reengineered from the ground up, which now holds butterfly mechanism making each key more stable, more precise and 40% thinner and also now each key has a 17% larger surface area. There’s an LED under every key, so the entire keyboard has a uniform glow.
Looking at the display, the new MacBook has got a gorgeous 12-inch Retina Display which has a 2304 x 1440 pixels resolution. Apple claims that ” Every single pixel has been reengineered to let more light through. So the Retina display uses 30% less energy to produce the same brightness as other Mac Retina displays.”
The new MacBook now has pressure sensitive Force Touch trackpad, and the Force Touch trackpad packs force sensors that can detect how much pressure you apply on its surface. You can adjust the sensitivity of the trackpad to decide how much pressure it takes to click. You can click anywhere. And clicks are quieter. And now the Force Touch trackpad can tell the difference between a light tap and a deep press. Apple has added new shortcuts to apps you use every day in the Force clicks . All and all the new trackpad now has many new and unique features making it easier to the new MacBook.
Now talking about the under hood enhancements, the new MacBook is fanless, which not only saves space but also allow it to run in silent. And the logic book is now 67% smaller than the one found in MacBook Air. The Intel Core M processor loaded in this MacBook runs on just 5 watts.
There is also costumed spaced battery allows more space and give it a all day battery life. The new MacBook has got a USB-C ports that serves for 5 function in 1 port. This new connectivity standard gives you power, USB data transfer, DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA capabilities.
