Apple released the new MacBook today. And that’s really the name: New MacBook. It’s not an Air nor is it a Pro, it is however lighter & thinner than the existing Air and features an improved 226 ppi display, & a re-designed track pad using Apple Watch’s Force Touch technology. Its single port in the rear is used for USB (the new reversible USB-C type), DisplayPort, HDMI, and VGA. Aside from the standard silver color scheme, space gray and gold are also now offered.
You’re looking at the world’s first mechanical smartwatch hybrid. The 46mm stainless steel case features an automatic Japanese movement or optional Swiss movement as well as a TOLED full-color display and functions like: push alerts, notifications for text & email, remote control for your phone or computer, plus a variety of fitness functions.
