The goal with the new MacBook was to do the impossible: deliver a complete full-size experience in the lightest and most compact Mac notebook. Every fundamental element has been reimagined to make it not only thinner but also better. The result is more than just a new notebook. It’s the future of the notebook.
A full-sized keyboard.
In a fraction of the space.
Fitting a full-size keyboard into the elegantly thin new MacBook
required completely rethinking how a keyboard is engineered and
constructed. Each key and its underlying mechanism were
redesigned — not only making the whole keyboard much thinner,
but also allowing for more comfortable, precise and responsive
typing that just feels right.
The moment you open the new MacBook, its gorgeous 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. Every photo leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. Over three million pixels render each letter with crystal clarity. And it all comes to light on the thinnest, most energy-efficient Retina display ever on a Mac.
The trackpad, pushed even
further with Force Touch.
With the new MacBook comes a whole new way to experience a trackpad. The Force Touch trackpad
is engineered to deliver a responsive, uniform click no matter where you press the surface. And
underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying and give you new ways to
interact with your Mac. You can use a force click to enable new capabilities, like quickly looking up the
definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press on the trackpad. You’ll
also experience haptic feedback — a tactile vibration from the trackpad that adds the sense of touch to
what you see on the screen. These advanced capabilities work in addition to all the intuitive Multi-
Touch gestures Mac users love. You’ll be more in touch with your Mac than ever before. Without lifting
Fully equipped for a wireless world.
The new MacBook is designed to fit effortlessly into our increasingly wireless world. Just about
anything you do with a notebook can now be done over the air, thanks to Apple software that takes full
advantage of the latest Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology. So no matter where you are, you
can connect to the web, transfer files, organise your photos, listen to music and more — without
being tied down.
One port for
everything you need.
The new USB-C port puts just about everything you
need in a port all in one place. This amazing port
provides charging, speedy USB 3 data transfer and
video output in a small, reversible design that’s
one third the size of the current USB port.
The new MacBook has been engineered from the ground up for
silent, efficient performance. It starts with a fifth-generation Intel
Core M processor that runs on just 5 watts of power, made even
more efficient by optimisations throughout OS X Yosemite. Together
the processor and OS X sip so little energy that the system
generates very little heat, so no fan is required to cool the
computer. That means when your MacBook is working, you won’t
hear a thing. And the logic board on which the processor sits has
been completely redesigned to pack all the capability you expect in
a Mac into as little space as possible.
All-day battery life.
People rely on Apple notebooks for all-day battery life, regardless of how compact the notebook is. And with the slim new MacBook enclosure, all-day battery life simply would not be achievable using traditional rectangular batteries. So we developed our own unique battery technology specifically designed to make use of every last millimetre of available space. The result is a terraced, contoured
battery design that not only fits perfectly inside the incredibly slim MacBook, but also is unlike anything seen before in a notebook.
OS X is the operating system that powers every Mac. Built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, it’s engineered to take full advantage of what the hardware is capable of. It’s designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at. It comes with an amazing collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day. And it enables your Mac and iOS devices to work wonderfully together.
Every Mac comes with apps for creativity and apps for productivity. It also comes with a collection of great apps for things you do every day, like surﬁng the web, sending mail and messages, and organising your calendar. It even comes with an app for finding new apps. Your Mac is more than fully featured, it’s fully loaded.
