Apple’s 12-inch Retina Macbook that’s thinner and weighs two pounds

by Gareth Mankoo

Apple moved the crosshair of their undivided attention away from the celebrated and fiercely debated Apple Watch, towards their new 12-inch Macbook. Positioned as the new ultraportable device, this sleek rendition weighs just two pounds and shaves off mass for a thinner body. It is in fact 24% thinner than the 11-inch Macbook, at 13.1 mm. The ‘Retina’ display shows off a resolution of 2,304 x 1,440 pixels and the bezel is slim as well. It comes with a single USB-C connector that charges connected devices, dishes out video and connects to accessories and other devices. On the inside, the Macbook has a 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core M CPU, Intel HD 3500 GPU, 8GB internal storage and a 256GB SSD.

The specs mentioned above would arrive in a $1,299 Macbook. For more power, you could opt for a $1,599 version that comes with a 1.2GHz CPU and offers 512GB SSD storage.
