The 12-inch MacBook is the thinnest and lightest Mac notebook computer by Apple at just 13.1mm thin and weighing just 920 grammes. This is even thinner than the MacBook Air which is still one of the thinnest notebooks available.
To achieve this Apple completely redesigned the keyboard, put in a new 12-inch Retina Display, made all storage SSD (Solid state) and completely filled the rest with a custom designed battery to give it a battery life of up to 10 hours. It was also the first model to be available in a number of colours – Silver, Space Grey, Gold and Rose Gold.
We found this MacBook is still capable of performing a lot of tasks we even did on a more powerful MacBook Pro however it is not designed to be one which will run every task.
Expect to be able to easily edit photos, browse the web, watch Netflix, create and edit documents and lots more. If you’re someone who is going to want to play a lot of games or use professional photo and video editing applications you may want to consider the more powerful MacBook Pro.
