Earlier today in San Francisco, Apple took a few minutes to shift attention away from the Apple Watch to present the all new MacBook, a 12-inch ultraportable that weighs 2 lbs. and, at its thickest point, measures just 13.1 millimeters thick, 24% thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air. It also features the company’s "Retina" display, with 2,304 by 1,440 pixel resolution, and a thin bezel around the screen and keyboard. One feature represents Apple's larger vision for its future notebooks: in lieu of multiple ports, the device has a single USB-C connector, used to provide power, video output, and device connectivity. The base model MacBook begins at $1,299 and comes with a 1.1 Ghz dual-core Intel Core M processor, Intel HD 3500 graphics, 8GB of memory, and a 256GB SSD hard drive. A more powerful model retails for $1,599 and packs a 1.2GHz processor and 512GB SSD.
