Apple is not all about iPhones and smartwatches. At their Spring Forward event in San Francisco last night Apple introduced a marvel of technology in the form of new Macbook. The new Macbook is kind of unique in number of ways as it brings on board a hoard of new features and design improvements.
The 12 inch Macbook features a Retina display with an amazing resolution of 2304 x 1440 pixels. The marvelous edge to edge display with extremely thin bezels consumes 30% less energy as compared to other displays without compromising with the brightness levels. With a thickness measuring an astonishing 13.1 mm and a weight around 908 grams it is the slimmest and lightest among all the Macbooks currently available.
The new Macbook is more silent than ever as it incorporates a fan-less design. Apple has introduced a new feature with this Macbook known as “Force Touch Trackpad”. This radical technology introduces the concept of “Light” and “Force” clicks on the trackpad that opens certain programs automatically depending how deeply and where you touch the trackpad.
This Macbook packs Intel’s energy-efficient core M Broadwell processors clocking at 1.1 GHz and can turbo boost up to 2.9 GHz if required. The new processors need just 5 watts of power. The battery underneath this technology masterpiece provides a long battery life of 9 hours while web browsing and 10 long hours while watching videos.
Apple has finally said Goodbye to all the conventional external ports like SD card slot, power connector, HDMI, VGA and Thunderbolt. In place of all these ports Apple has introduced a new Type-C connection which is capable of delivering 100 watts of power when needed as well as transfer data with blazing fast speeds of 10 Gbps and can relay audio and video signals using the DisplayPort technology. This Type-C connection is reversible and can be used to insert the USB’s right into it. Pretty neat actually.
The base model features a 1.1 GHz dual core processor coupled with 8GB of ram and 256 GB of solid state drive whereas another high-end model features a 1.2 GHz dual core processor along with 512 GB of solid state drive. The Macbook will be available in Silver, Space Grey and Gold colors and will be available for sale starting April 10 at a price starting at $1300. Though, pricing and availability details for India are unknown at the moment. Apple has completely overhauled the look and feel of this Macbook as well as brought on board awesome features like USB 3.1 and Force Touch Trackpad. This new Macbook will definitely create rumbles when goes on sale.
