As expected, Apple squeezed in something besides the new timepieces – There are new MacBooks with a 12-inch Retina Laptop that’s lighter and thinner than the Apple’s previous trend-setting design.
The laptop has a smaller bezel around the screen and the keyboard reaches both the edges of the base. The Taptic engine offers touch feedback on the Apple Watch that simulates the sensation of clicking. The users can now use the push harder than the usual tap.
MacBook Air – The new features:
Just as the original MacBook Air ushered in a new way, the new 12-inch MacBook Air is designed a world where your computing device would be your smartphone and not your laptop.
Along with the headphone jack, there is just one port on the new MacBook. The new reversible USB-C connector can charge the laptop, send videos and carry data. The new connector enabled Apple to make the laptop even thinner. We can expect a new Apple display with the ability to connect accessories to the new Air in the coming few years.
Sending photos made easier with MacBook Air:
Users who want to send documents or photos would be happy sending those over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth using AirDrop and iCloud.
Weight and Battery Life:
The weight of the new laptop is just 2 pounds and is 13.1 mm thick, which means 24 percent thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air. The laptop runs on a Core M processor and Apple claims “all-day battery” with 9 hours of web or 10 hours of HD video.
This new MacBook will launch on April 10 for $ 1,299 and will include 8GB of RAM and 256 GB SSD in the entry level model. The new Mac will come in Silver, Gold and Space Gray versions.
