Here is something new you might be interested to know. Apple just came out with a new notebook. The new MacBook as they call it comes with some pretty nice features but it also has some very limiting ones. So before you go to your local supplier to get one, check this out. We will give you a better idea of what the MacBook has in store.
Let’s start with the design. It has a nice light and slim design which looks good. It also comes in 3 colors, sliver, gold and space grey. The sliver is very much the standard which is ok. The gold is actually not bad to look at. My personal favourite is the space grey, which I think is wicked to look at. One downside is that it only comes in one size which is a 12inch screen.
The 12-inch, screen is a Retina, 2304 by 1440 pixels resolution display is great. It is ridiculously vivid and sharp. Viewing pictures and video will definitely be a nice experience here.
The computing power is just so and so. Although sufficient and energy efficient, the Intel Core M “Broadwell” processor is not as powerful as previous apples models. It’s great for viewing but not for heavy editing of videos and pictures. Click here to check out the specs.
The battery life is much improved in the MacBook. Apple claims it can last for up to one whole day. This is probably due to the energy efficient processor, which incidentally no longer needs a fan to keep cooled down.
The keyboard feels different but in good way. It’s like the key press is not as deep as before so it takes some time to get used to it. It is nice when you get past the getting used to stage. The new trackpad is also nice. Pressing soft and hard gives you different options depending on what you are doing. It also takes some getting used to but it also offers more flexibility of use.
Last but not the least important choice point is the data port. There is only one data port which is also the charging connector so you practically have no data port while charging. I suppose Apple thinks this will be a great opportunity for users to go completely wireless. Every peripheral here has to be connected via wireless connection. Otherwise you need to get an add-on dongle that comes with connectors for HDMI and USB plus a connection for your charger.
There you have it, the pros and cons of the new MacBook. Now it’s up to you to decide if based on the information above, this is the right or the wrong notebook for you.
