Apple reinvents the notebook with new MacBook

The new MacBook is here, and it's the thinnest laptop Apple has ever created.


During its "Spring Forward" event, Apple unveiled a brand-new MacBook that is the lightest and thinnest Mac ever made.

The new MacBook is only 2lbs and measures in at 13.1mm, all within an all-metal enclosure. It features a new full-sized keyboard, a new trackpad, and a 12-inch Retina display that offers a 2304 x 1440 resolution. It runs on an Intel Core M 1.1GHz processor that is capable of speeds of 2.9GHz when its Turbo kicks in, all while only consuming 5 Watts and delivering all-day battery life. The MacBook is also the first consumer product to use USB-C, which Apple says more products will begin supporting this new USB standard.

The MacBook is available in one of three color options: Silver, Space Grey, and Gold. At its base price of $1299, it'll feature all of the previously mentioned specs, but with 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD. For $1599, you'll get a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor and a 512GB SSD. The new MacBook will be availble to purchase on April 10.
