Apple 12" MacBook (Gold)

The MacBook is designed to do the impossible: engineer a full sized experience into the thinnest, lightest Mac notebook yet. And not only is it compact - it's more powerful than ever. The new MacBook delivers up to 20 per cent faster performance with new seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors, and up to 50 per cent faster SSD storage.

 

More muscle in every millimetre.

Now equipped with seventh-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook is snappier than ever. From daily tasks like launching apps and opening files to more advanced computing, you can power through your day thanks to faster SSDs and Turbo Boost processing up to 3.6GHz.


We squeezed the most into it. And out of it.

Each component inside MacBook has been meticulously designed to get the most out of an incredibly thin and light enclosure. We chose powerful yet highly efficient processors, and optimised macOS to draw on the processor using as little power as possible. Because no fan is needed to cool the computer, it has more room for battery cells to support you on the go, all day long.

 

Processor

Inside you'll find seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors with 14-nanometre process technology. This lets MacBook expertly combine energy efficiency with the performance needed to take on all sorts of tasks.

 

Fanless architecture

MacBook was built for virtually silent performance. Its processor runs on just 5 watts of power, which generates less heat and eliminates the need for a fan to cool the computer. Instead, the logic board is seated on an anisotropic graphite sheet that helps disperse any heat. So you won't hear a thing while your MacBook is hard at work.

 

Storage and memory

Though its components are tiny, MacBook has an impressive capacity to store the files and run the applications you need every day. With up to 16GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory and up to 512GB of SSD storage, you get an amazingly thin and light notebook with snappy performance.

 

Battery

To achieve all-day battery life3, we needed to use every millimetre of space inside MacBook. So we created an innovative terraced battery cell, custom-shaped to fit the specific contours of the enclosure. The result is 35 per cent more battery cell capacity than would have been possible before.

 

A Retina display that takes everything to the edge.

The stunning 12-inch Retina display on MacBook is truly something to behold. With over 3 million pixels and edge-to-edge glass, every image leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. All on an amazingly thin Retina display. To deliver the gorgeous Retina experience, we designed the pixels to create a larger aperture. This lets more light pass through, allowing us to use more energy-efficient LED backlighting, yet achieve the same vivid brightness.

 

A keyboard refined for an even better hands-on experience.

We believe that a comfortable, full-sized keyboard is an essential part of any notebook. To fit one into MacBook, we designed a keyboard from the ground up - including each key and its underlying mechanism. This makes the whole keyboard not only much thinner, but also more comfortable and precise, so your fingers feel right at home.

Enhanced butterfly mechanism.Key to the keyboard.

Now, with our second-generation butterfly mechanism, the keyboard experience is refined for greater comfort and responsiveness. So when your finger strikes a key, it goes down and bounces back with a crisp motion that you'll appreciate the moment you start typing.

 

The Force Touch trackpad. Press a little deeper, do a lot more.

The pressure-sensing capabilities of the Force Touch trackpad allow you to tell your MacBook what you want it to do based on subtle differences in pressure. Click anywhere on the trackpad to perform a variety of actions in different apps, all on the same surface, without lifting a finger. And the Taptic Engine provides haptic feedback that adds a sense of touch to what you see on the screen.

 

Multi-Touch. Precise control at your fingertips.

Multi-Touch gestures make it easy and intuitive to interact with your MacBook. Scroll in any direction, swipe through web pages, pinch, rotate, or Force click to unlock other useful capabilities.

 

Connect to everything you love. Anywhere you go.

With powerful technologies in an incredibly compact enclosure, MacBook is designed to fit perfectly into a world where just about anything you do with a notebook can be done over the air. For those moments when you do need to plug in, USB-C packs a heap of capability into one small and convenient port.

Fully equipped for a wireless world.

MacBook takes full advantage of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technologies - and with innovative Apple software and services that let you get the most out of them, you can wirelessly connect to the web, transfer files, organise your photos, listen to music and more.

macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. macOS Mojave brings new features inspired by its most powerful users but designed for everyone. So you can get more out of every click.

Satisfactory replacement for age-old Macbook

I bought this Macbook to replace my seven-year-old Macbook Pro which was on its last legs. I'm quite happy with this product -- seems to be a satisfactory replacement. My only issue would be that it does not have the extra ports that my old Macbook did, but that is easily resolvable by purchasing a docking station hub with several ports (which I did and it is definitely an essential for this Macbook!).

I bought very recently and so far it has been running smoothly, so I am quite happy with my purchase.
