Our goal with MacBook was to do the impossible: engineer a full‑sized experience into the thinnest, lightest Mac notebook yet. And not only is it compact — it’s more powerful than ever. The new MacBook delivers up to 20 per cent faster performance with new seventh‑generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors, and up to 50 per cent faster SSD storage.
All-New Apple-Designed Keyboard
MacBook features an all-new Apple-designed keyboard. It is a full-size keyboard with a fresh, new look and feel, designed from the ground up to be thin, precise and comfortable to use.
The keyboard features a newly designed butterfly mechanism for balanced and precise key movement. Precise movement is important when designing a thin keyboard—where if the key has too much tilt, it could bottom out on the case before reliably triggering the key stroke.
Force Touch trackpad
MacBook also features the new Force Touch trackpad. It has the same great large glass trackpad surface with precision tracking and Multi-Touch gesture support. But while it looks like other trackpads, it’s been completely reinvented underneath.
More muscle in every millimetre
Now equipped with seventh-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook is snappier than ever. From daily tasks like launching apps and opening files to more advanced computing, you can power through your day thanks to faster SSDs and Turbo Boost processing up to 3.6GHz.
We squeezed the most into it. And out of it
Each component inside MacBook has been meticulously designed to get the most out of an incredibly thin and light enclosure. We chose powerful yet highly efficient processors and optimised macOS to draw on the processor using as little power as possible. Because no fan is needed to cool the computer, it has more room for battery cells to support you on the go, all day long.
To achieve all-day battery life, we needed to use every millimetre of space inside MacBook. So we created an innovative terraced battery cell, custom shaped to fit the specific contours of the enclosure. The result is 35 per cent more battery cell capacity than would have been possible before.
Multi-Touch.Precise control at your fingertips
Multi-Touch gestures make it easy and intuitive to interact with your MacBook. Scroll in any direction, swipe through web pages, pinch, rotate or Force click to unlock other useful capabilities.
- Force click- Click and continue to press on the trackpad to enable new capabilities, like looking up the definition of a word, previewing a file in the Finder or creating a new Calendar event when you Force click a date in the text of an email.
- Accelerators- Gradually add pressure to the trackpad to vary the speed with which you fast-forward through a QuickTime film or zoom in on a location in Maps.
- Pressure-sensitive drawing- Press lightly for a thin stroke or harder for a thick one when marking up a Mail attachment or creating a signature for forms in Preview.
Connect to everything you love. Anywhere you go
With powerful technologies in an incredibly compact enclosure, MacBook is designed to fit perfectly into a world where just about anything you do with a notebook can be done over the air. For those moments when you do need to plug in, USB-C packs heaps of capability into one small and convenient port.
Fully equipped for a wireless world
MacBook takes full advantage of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 4.2 wireless technologies — and with innovative Apple software and services that let you get the most out of them, you can wirelessly connect to the web, transfer files, organise your photos, listen to music and more.
macOS is the operating system that powers everything you do on a Mac. macOS High Sierra brings new forward-looking technologies and enhanced features to your Mac. It’s macOS at its highest level yet.
MacBook is available in rose gold, gold, space grey and silver.
