The Cupertino, California-based tech giant has an updated Apple MacBook that now packs a lot of power in an ultra-thin (and also incredibly sexy) case. This makes it a great choice for people who are looking to acquire a very light weight laptop but still prefer to use the OS X rather an option for the iOS on an iPad.
The New Apple MacBook Dictates Form With Function
Even though the Apple MacBook is updated with a new model, it still makes use of the overall similar construction and build quality of which the product line is known for. It has a full-sized, edge-to-edge keyboard with backlit keys. This minimizes any issues that may be experienced when typing on a smaller laptop. Its delivers a 2,304 x 1,440 resolution 12-inch Retina display and images on it look absolutely stunning. There is also the large, pressure sensitive, multi-touch trackpad which is able to deliver haptic feedback whenever you’re using it. These ingredients make for a device that is considered top-quality, which is what you would expect from one of Apple’s product lines.
The new Apple MacBook runs on faster processing units, either an Intel Core m3, m5, or m7 processor, depending on what configuration you’re after. The default model will net you the 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core m3 that has Turbo Boost up to 2.2GHz when more speeds are required. It also comes with a 256GB of PCIe flash storage. For the next configuration, and a bit more expensive, is it has a 1.2GHz dual-core Intel Core m5 processor (can go up to 2.7GHz when using Turbo Boost) along with a 512GB of PCIe flash storage drive. Both of these models can be upgraded to use the Intel Core m7 dual-core processor, and can also be upgraded with 8GB of 1866MHz onboard RAM. Unfortunately, the RAM cannot be upgraded, but 8GB is more than enough to get things done.
Speaking of things that cannot be upgraded, once you have chosen your desired configuration for the new Apple MacBook, the memory, processor, and storage are all soldered onto the device’s motherboard. So you have better think about it a lot first because once you get the machine with the configuration you want, it might already be too late. So you might want to ask yourself, as well as check your spending allowance, if you are able to get the better configuration. Because if you do, then it will definitely be worth it.
