Apple says that its MacBook line of notebooks have been reinvented in every way to deliver the thinnest and lightest Mac systems ever, and reviving a nameplate last used on the entry level/education white polycarbonate MacBook model in 2011.

Apple claims that every new MacBook component has been meticulously redesigned to create a Mac weighing just two pounds and measuring 13.1 mm thick at its deepest dimension. The new MacBook also features a 12-inch Retina display that is also the thinnest ever on a Mac, a dramatically thinner, Apple-designed full-size keyboard that is still highly responsive, Apple’s all-new Force Touch trackpad technology that brings a new dimension of interactivity to the Mac, acompact US B-C port for data transfer, video out and charging in a single connector, and a new battery design that maximizes every millimeter of internal space to deliver claimed all-day battery life.

Measuring just 13.1 mm at its thickest point, the new MacBook design is amazingly 24 percent thinner than the already svelte 11-inch MacBook Air. With a new precision-milled unibody enclosure featuring integrated Wi-Fi antennas and a top case with polished stainless steel Apple logo, MacBook is available in a choice of three finishes — gold, silver and space gray — and is the first MacBook with an all-metal enclosure. The new MacBook is designed around a new full-size keyboard. To fit a full-size keyboard into the anorexically thin MacBook meant completely re-engineering how a notebook keyboard works. The new keyboard is 34 percent thinner and uses an Apple-designed butterfly mechanism that is an 40 percent thinner than a traditional keyboard scissor mechanism yet claimed to be four times more stable, providing greater precision no matter where your finger strikes the key.

The new MacBook features a new terraced battery design that is layered in individual sheets that are precisely contoured to fit the MacBook’s curved enclosure. As a result, the new MacBook has more battery capacity than would be possible with traditional battery cells and delivers a claimed all-day battery life with up to 10 hours of wireless web browsing.

The 12" MacBook also features a next-generation USB-C port that is compact, yet extremely versatile and even more user friendly. A new industry standard, USB-C supports higher wattage charging, USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps) data transfer and DisplayPort 1.2 all in a single connector one-third the size of a traditional USB port.

The 2016 MacBook comes with a Skylake 1.1 GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor with Turbo Boost speeds up to 2.4 GHz, 8GB of memory, 256GB of flash storage and Intel HD Graphics 515 starting at $1,299 (US); and with a Skylake 1.2 GHz 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 515 starting at $1,599 (US).
