Apple MacBook Space Grey 1.1 GHz 12-inch Retina display
Apple has done it again with a MacBook that is just 13.1 mm at its thickest point. It's not just the dimensions that are impressive, of course! Compared to its predecessors, it's also faster, and has a better display and a renewed keyboard and trackpad. Thanks to its compact dimensions, it's easier to take with you than ever before, especially if you're travelling. The improved trackpad now also registers how hard you press it, which opens up a number of opportunities for the multi-touch functionality. In short, it's a practical and compact laptop!
MacBook Space Grey 1.1 GHz: impressive!
Impressive dimensions would mean nothing if the MacBook didn't have matching performance. Fortunately, the 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core M processor delivers the necessary computing power. This is supported by an impressive 8GB DDR3 memory with a speed of 1600 MHz. The 256GB Solid State Drive has no moving parts, which offers superior stability and reliability. It is also fast which means that the MacBook won't be held back while data is read or written.
Perhaps somewhat surprisingly, this MacBook only has two connectors. One is to connect your headphones, while the other connector is extremely versatile. It's a USB-C 3.0 port used for charging the laptop. The same port is also used when you want to transfer data to an external source like a USB stick. It's also used to connect a display. Optional VGA and HDMI adapters allow you to connect an external monitor or projector. In short, it's an ideal laptop for things like presentations, and given its compact size, it's easy to take with you too!
