New Macbook: light years ahead of its time

With the new MacBook, Apple set out to do the impossible: engineer a full-size experience into the lightest and most compact Mac notebook ever.

That meant reimagining every element to make it not only lighter and thinner but also better.

It’s the future of the notebook.

The moment you open the new MacBook, 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, most energy-efficient Retina display ever on a Mac.

With the new MacBook comes a whole new way to experience a trackpad.

The Force Touch trackpad is engineered to deliver a responsive, uniform click no matter where you press the surface. And underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying and give you new ways to interact with your Mac.

People rely on Apple notebooks for all-day battery life, regardless of how compact they are. So Apple developed their own unique battery technology specifically designed to make use of every last millimeter of available space.

The new macbook starts at $1299.
