The goal with MacBook was to do the impossible: engineer a full-sized experience into the thinnest, lightest Mac notebook yet. And not only is it compact — it’s more powerful than ever. The new MacBook delivers up to 20 per cent faster performance with new seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors, and up to 50 per cent faster SSD storage.1

More muscle in every millimetre.

Now equipped with seventh-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook is snappier than ever. From daily tasks like launching apps and opening files to more advanced computing, you can power through your day thanks to faster SSDs and Turbo Boost processing up to 3.6GHz.

Squeezing the most into it.
And out of it.

Each component inside MacBook has been meticulously designed to get the most out of an incredibly thin and light enclosure. Apple chose powerful yet highly efficient processors and optimised macOS to draw on the processor using as little power as possible. Because no fan is needed to cool the computer, it has more room for battery cells to support you on the go, all day long.

 

Processor

Inside you'll find seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors with 14-nanometre process technology. This lets MacBook expertly combine energy efficiency with the performance needed to take on all sorts of tasks.

Fanless architecture

MacBook was built for virtually silent performance. Its processor runs on just 5 watts of power, which generates less heat and eliminates the need for a fan to cool the computer. Instead, the logic board is seated on an anisotropic graphite sheet that helps disperse any heat. So you won’t hear a thing while your MacBook is hard at work.

Storage and memory

Though its components are tiny, MacBook has an impressive capacity to store the files and run the applications you need every day. With up to 16GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory and up to 512GB of SSD storage, you get an amazingly thin and light notebook with snappy performance.

Battery

To achieve all-day battery life,* we needed to use every millimetre of space inside MacBook. So we created an innovative terraced battery cell, custom shaped to fit the specific contours of the enclosure. The result is 35 per cent more battery cell capacity than would have been possible before.

A Retina display that takes
everything to the edge.

The stunning 12-inch Retina display on MacBook is truly something to behold. With
over 3 million pixels and edge-to-edge glass, every image leaps off the screen in
rich, vibrant detail. All on an amazingly thin Retina display.3

A keyboard refined for an even
better hands-on experience.

a comfortable, full-sized keyboard is an essential part of any notebook. To fit one into
MacBook, we designed a keyboard from the ground up — including each key and its
underlying mechanism. This makes the whole keyboard not only much thinner, but also
more comfortable and precise, so your fingers feel right at home.

The Force Touch trackpad.
Press a little deeper, do a lot more.

The pressure-sensing capabilities of the Force Touch trackpad allow
you to tell your MacBook what you want it to do based on subtle differences
in pressure. Click anywhere to perform a variety of actions in different
apps, all on the same surface, without lifting a finger. And the Taptic
Engine provides haptic feedback that adds a sense of touch to what you
see on the screen.

Multi-Touch.
Precise control at your fingertips.

Multi-Touch gestures make it easy and intuitive to interact with your
MacBook. Scroll in any direction, swipe through web pages, pinch, rotate
or Force click to unlock other useful capabilities.

Connect to everything you love.
Anywhere you go.

With powerful technologies in an incredibly compact enclosure, MacBook is
designed to fit perfectly into a world where just about anything you do with a
notebook can be done over the air. For those moments when you do need to
plug in, USB-C packs heaps of capability into one small and convenient port.

USB-C. Singularly versatile.

The USB-C port puts everything you need in a port all in one place. It provides
charging, speedy USB data transfer (up to 5 Gbps) 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 favourite devices.

Fully equipped for a wireless world.

MacBook takes full advantage of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless
technologies — and with innovative Apple software and services that let you get the
most out of them, you can wirelessly connect to the web, transfer files, organise your
photos, listen to music and more.
