Apple today announced an all new Macbook at its Apple Spring Live event. The New MacBook comes with a 12 inch retina displazy at a resolution of 2304×1440 with a 178 degree viewing angle at a 16:9 aspect ratio all packed in a first time ever all metal MacBook. Apple also claims the new LED technology uses about 30% less energy than any other battery
The new MacBook is incredibly thin and it comes with an edge to edge keyboard that is fitted with Apple’s all new butterfly mechanism technology that makes typing easier. The keyboard is also coupled with a single LED light under each key to create a clear and sharp display of keys. You will notice that the keys are actually bigger and Apple claims that they have increased the key size by 17%.
Apple was boastful about its new battery technology that used custom designed sheets so as to fit the MacBook with an evenly distributed battery in all areas of the uni-body because “they don’t want to ship air they want to ship a larger battery.” This battery will last up to 10 hours on iTunes Movie playback.
Apple also announced the Force Touch track pad which unlike any other track pad uses a haptic engine and force sensors to respond to track pad actions based on the amount of force used while touching the track pad. Apple demoed a hard press which brings a pop up of details about a particular word in a browser, or setting an appointment by hard pressing on an appointment. This new track pad also has an electronic haptic magnet that provides responses when you touch the track pad and the sensitivity can be adjusted through software.
The MacBook comes with no fan and Apple pushed its engineers to the limit to reduce component size by up to 40% and since the it has no moving parts this beauty will be silent. You’ll find the fifth-generation Intel Core M “Broadwell” processor — the first chip designed with 14-nanometer process technology. This new MacBook features 8GB of fast, power-efficient 1600MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory (RAM) together with either 256 GB or 512 GB of flash storage.
As rumored this Macbook comes with only one port for Power, VGA, USB, and HDMI using the new USB Type-C technology that comes with a reversible cable. This however means that you will need to spend extra dollars on accessories if you want to use the port for more than one purpose at the same time.
This elegantly designed MacBook will come in 3 colors namely; Silver, Gold and Space grey and it will mine $1299 and $1599 out of your pocket for the 256 GB and 512 GB models respectively.
