It’s still Apple’s thinnest and lightest laptop , determining 0.52 inches at its thickest point and
tapering down to 0.14 inches, and it only weighs two pounds.The screen’s the same bright and brilliant 12-inch Retina screen with 2,304 x 1,440 resolution.Under the hood, the new MacBook’s an entire new beast. There’s faster 7th-gen Intel “Kaby Lake”processor. Under the hood, the brand-new MacBook’s an entire new beast.Battery life on the brand-new MacBooks is the same: Up
to 10 hours of web browsing time, and up to 11 hours of iTunes
movie playback.The new MacBooks appear like a strong upgrade to the 2016 designs, but we’re simply a little bummed Apple could not squeeze in a second USB-C port next to the headphone jack on the right side. If you want two USB-C ports, you’ll need to step up to the 13-inch MacBook Pro without Touch Bar. Or if you desire four, you’ll
have to get the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, or the bigger 15-inch MacBook Pro with Touch Bar.The updated MacBooks start at$1,299 and are readily available in silver, gold, area gray, and increased gold.
