This ultra-portable 12" Apple MacBook is a great choice for someone who's looking for a compact laptop that still has plenty of processing power. It's small and weighs just 2 pounds, but inside are state-of-the-art components which ensure it can handle any task you throw at it. This MacBook has an Intel Core M3 processor with a standard speed of 1.1GHz. However, the M3 processor can automatically boost its speed up to 2.2GHz to handle more demanding jobs like multi-tasking. This laptop also features a 8GB of LPDDR3 RAM and 256GB of flash storage for lightning-fast start-up times and application launching. Whether you're surfing the internet, watching movies or looking at photos, everything will look beautiful on the laptop's Retina display that is capable of rendering 3 million pixels. This new version of the MacBook also replaces the multiple ports with a single USB-C port which can be used for charging the battery, attaching an external hard drive for more storage or as a video output when used with an optional VGA or HDMI adapter.
- A Full-Size Keyboard. In a Fraction of the Space: We believe that a comfortable, full-size keyboard is essential for a great notebook experience. But to fit one into the elegantly thin MacBook, we had to completely rethink how a keyboard is engineered and constructed. We redesigned each key and its underlying mechanism - not only making the whole keyboard much thinner, but also allowing for more comfortable, precise, and responsive typing that just feels right.
- USB-C Singularly Versatile: The USB-C port puts just about everything you need in a port all in one place. This amazing port provides charging, speedy USB 3 data transfer, and video output in a reversible design that's one-third the size of a USB 3 port, giving you the flexibility to easily connect your favorite devices.
- The Capability to Connect to Everything You Need: A range of accessories lets you connect virtually any device to your MacBook. For instance, the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter lets you connect your MacBook to an HDMI display, as well as a standard USB device and a USB-C charging cable.
- macOS: macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. macOS Sierra introduces Siri to Mac - along with new ways to enjoy your photos, shop more securely online, and work more seamlessly between devices.
- Quietly Astonishing: MacBook has been engineered from the ground up for silent, efficient performance. It includes sixth-generation Intel Core M processors that run on just 5 watts of power, made even more efficient by optimizations throughout macOS. Together the processor and macOS sip so little energy that the system generates very little heat, so no fan is required to cool the computer.
- All-Day Battery Life. Now Even Longer: With the slim MacBook enclosure, all-day battery life simply would not be achievable using traditional rectangular batteries. We, thus, created a terraced, contoured battery design that not only fits perfectly inside the incredibly slim MacBook, but also is unlike anything seen before in a notebook. And, thanks to more efficient processors and improved battery chemistry, battery life has been extended by an hour.
- A Retina Display That Takes Everything to the Edge: Its gorgeous 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. Every photo leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. Over 3 million pixels render each letter with crystal clarity. And it all comes to light on the thinnest Retina display ever on a Mac, meticulously honed to deliver a bold visual experience within an impossibly minimal design.
- Built-in Apps: Every Mac comes with apps for creativity and productivity, such as sur?ng the web, sending mail and messages, and organizing your calendar. It even comes with an app for finding new apps. Your Mac is more than full-featured, it's fully loaded.
