Apple Officially Announces 12-Inch Retina MacBook

Apart from the Apple Watch, Apple has just announced another interesting device. As you might have guessed, this is the widely-rumored 12-inch Retina MacBook. Surprisingly, this laptop stays separately from the existing MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lineups: it’s just a MacBook.

The new MacBook is incredibly thin and has a display resolution of 2304 x 1440. In fact, this is the thinnest laptop Apple has ever created - it is 24% thinner that the current MacBook Air.

The device can boast of new fanless 1.1GHz or 1.2GHz Intel Core-M processor and Intel HD 5300 graphics. It consumes less energy, but offers a top-level performance. Apart from better processor, graphics and Retina-display, the laptop features 8GB of RAM, 256GB or 512GB of flash storage on board, USB-C port, revamped keyboard and a brand new trackpad that supports Force Touch, a technology, which is currently available only in the Apple Watch. The guys from Cupertino also claim that this MacBook will work between 9 and 10 hours on a single charge.

The new MacBook will become available on April, 10th. Today, Apple has announced only two models: one with 1.1GHz processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for $1.299 and another one with 1.2GHz processor, 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage for $1.599. Still, I believe there will be some other models.
