Apple Announces 1kg 12-inch Macbook

Along with yesterdays Watch announcement, Apple caught most of us off guard with the announcement of an entirely new line of Macbooks.

This time it is just called Macbook, and is supposed to sit somewhere between an iPad air and Macbook Air. The Macbook is an ultra thin 12-inch laptop powered by low powered Intel Core M processors and weight an incredible 0.92KG just twice the weight of a iPad Air.

The display is a LED-backlit IPS screen running with 2304×1440 resolution at 226 pixels per inch with support for millions of colours.

The CPU runs at 1.1GHz or 1.2GHz depending on the model, and both models comes with 8GB of 1600MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory

Storage is either 256GB or 512GB PCIe-based onboard flash.

The biggest concern for most is that in order to keep the size down Apple have decided to use just one port on the entire laptop which is a USB-C port which will be used for both connectivity AND charging. You will have to buy an adapter if you want to increase the number of ports!

Pricing is also a bit eye-watering with £1,049.00 for the base model and £1,299.00 for the more expensive option.
