Apple launched a new ultra-portable laptop, named “simply MacBook” during its ‘Spring Forward’ event in March. Its whole body is made of purely metal and has a 12-inch retina display (resolution 2304x1440p), weighs just 910grams and is 13.1 mm thin at its thickest point. It has super-slim frame and feather-weight body.
The display panel has black bezels similar to the MacBook Pro and are much narrower compared to the metal casing that surrounds the Air’s display. The display looks super vibrant, sharp and has wide viewing angles.
One of the biggest change that they have made is the removal of all secondary ports except the 3.5mm headphone jack and the addition of a USB type C port that supports higher wattage charging, USB 3.1 Gen-1 (5Gbps) data transfer and DisplayPort 1.2. For this MacBook, Apple claims to give 35% more battery capacity and all-day battery life.
The new 12-inch fan-less MacBook is powered by a 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.4GHz, 8GB of memory, 256GB of flash storage and Intel HD Graphics 5300 and comes at a starting price of Rs 99,900, including VAT.
The model with a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.6GHz, 8GB of memory, 512GB of flash storage and Intel HD Graphics 5300 and is priced at Rs 1,19,900.
