Also unveiled today was the new MacBook, not as suspected an update to the Air.
The new MacBook features a sharp 12-inch screen with a “Retina” 2,304 by 1,440 pixel resolution, as well as a thin bezel around the screen and keyboard. It’s just 13.1 millimeters thick, around 25 percent less than the 11-inch MacBook Air. The MacBook ships on April 10 and starts at $1,299 with a 1.1GHz Core M processor, 256GB SSD and 8GB RAM. There’s also a slightly more powerful model for $1,599 with a 1.2GHz processor and 512GB SSD.
There’s just a single USB Type-C connector, which is the smaller reversible connection that’s starting to make its way to tablets and phones this year. Existing USB accessories or USB keys won’t plug straight into the new 12-inch MacBook Air, instead you’ll need to use wireless connections to exchange files or an adapter. Apple’s single MacBook connector supports power, DisplayPort, VGA, data, and HDMI. Apple focused on wireless connectivity using Wi-Fi and Bluetooth during its press event today, and the company will sell VGA and HDMI adapters separately, meaning only DisplayPort, charging, and USB 3.1 connectivity is supported natively through the single port.
