Apple truly redefined the concept of an ultra-portable notebook in 2014 when it released a 12-inch Retina laptop that was just 13.1mm thick!
Despite being the baby of the MacBook family, in many ways it’s a grown-up MacBook Air, designed to be used anywhere, all day and with a new ‘butterfly’ mechanism keyboard that’s better for long periods of typing.
The MacBook was updated in early 2016 with slightly improved specs and a new Rose Gold colour (also available in Gold, Silver and Space Grey) before getting a mid-2017 spec bump as well.
Weighing in under a kilo, it’s Apple’s most lightweight laptop but still packs in a 226ppi pixel density in its 12-inch Retina display. It also features a Force Touch trackpad, which can trigger different responses as you apply more pressure.
