The 2015 MacBook is thinner, lighter and more powerful than any other previous MackBook before it. This 12 model features over 3 million pixels on Apple™s groundbreaking Retina Display, for an absolutely stunning effect. This spectacular 2304-by-1440 resolution lets you see more of your high-resolution images with pixel-for-pixel accuracy. And text is so sharp; you™ll feel like you'e reading email, web pages, and documents on a printed page. But a beautiful, ultra-thin display is only the beginning, the 2015 12 MacBook features a new force-sensing trackpad, all-flash architectures, and powerful fifth-generation Intel processors. Every element has been reimagined to make it not only lighter and thinner but also better. The result is more than just a new notebook. It™s the future of the notebook.
A keyboard reimagined from A to Z
From the beginning, the goal was to design a full, uncompromising Mac experience. And a full-size keyboard is an essential part of that. In order to fit a full-size keyboard in the incredibly thin MacBook, the new keyboard was designed from the ground up. Each component has been rethought specifically for the new MacBook, from the underlying mechanism to the curvature of the surface of each key to the distinctive new typeface. The result is a keyboard dramatically thinner than its predecessor. Now when your finger strikes the key, it goes down and bounces back with a crisp, consistent motion that makes typing with precision a breeze.
Traditional keyboards use a scissor mechanism, which tends to wobble around the edges. This creates a lack of precision when you strike anywhere except the center of the key. Apple needed to reduce key wobbling for a keyboard this thin; otherwise, striking a key off-center could result in the keycap hitting bottom before a keystroke registers. So they designed an entirely new butterfly mechanism, which is wider than the scissor mechanism and has a single assembly made from a stiffer material ” allowing for a more stable, responsive key that takes up less vertical space. This innovative design improves stability, uniformity, and control ” no matter where you press on the key.
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, meticulously honed to deliver a bold visual experience within an impossibly minimal design.
The trackpad, pushed even further with Force Touch
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'e applying and give you new ways to interact with your Mac. You can now use a Force click to enable new capabilities, like quickly looking up the definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press on the trackpad. You™ll also experience haptic feedback ” a tactile vibration from the trackpad that adds the sense of touch to what you see on the screen. These advanced capabilities work in addition to all the intuitive Multi-Touch gestures Mac users love. You™ll be more in touch with your Mac than ever before. Without lifting a finger.
When we set out to design an incredibly thin keyboard, one of the first things we considered was how to backlight the keys in a way that took up less space while delivering an even cleaner and more refined look and feel. To do that, we removed the row of LEDs and the light guide panel that distributed light throughout the keyboard and instead placed an individual LED under each key. These LEDs are calibrated for uniform brightness, so every key and character looks clear and sharp with minimal light around the keycap. All while being engineered for as much energy efficiency as possible.
Fully equipped for a wireless world
The 2015 MacBook is designed to fit effortlessly into our increasingly wireless world. Just about anything you do with a notebook can now be done over the air, thanks to Apple software that takes full advantage of the latest Wi‘Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology. So no matter where you are, you can connect to the web, transfer files, organize your photos, listen to music, and more ” without being tied down.
The new MacBook has been engineered from the ground up for silent, efficient performance. It starts with a fifth-generation Intel Core M processor that runs on just 5 watts of power, made even more efficient by optimizations throughout OS X Yosemite. Together the processor and OS X sip so little energy that the system generates very little heat, so no fan is required to cool the computer. That means when your MacBook is working, you won™t hear a thing. And the logic board on which the processor sits has been completely redesigned to pack all the capability you expect in a Mac into as little space as possible.
All-day battery life, All-new design
We know people rely on Apple notebooks for all-day battery life, regardless of how compact they are. And with the slim new MacBook enclosure, all-day battery life simply would not be achievable using traditional rectangular batteries. So we developed our own unique battery technology specifically designed to make use of every last millimeter of available space. The result is a terraced, contoured battery design that not only fits perfectly inside the incredibly slim MacBook, but also is unlike anything seen before in a notebook.
OS X is the operating system that powers every Mac. Built on a rock-solid UNIX foundation, it™s engineered to take full advantage of what the hardware is capable of. It™s designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at. It comes with an amazing collection of apps you™ll use ” and love ” every day. And it enables your Mac and iOS devices to work wonderfully together.
