Apple MacBook 12

Intel M-5Y31 • Intel HD Graphics 5300
First Released 03/09/2015

Apple brought back the venerable Macbook line in 2015 with a laptop weighing just over 2 pounds and in a choice of three colors. It also brought the Retina display to a new form factor of 12”, keeping a full-size keyboard with the use of a butterfly mechanism under keys. Apple says of the model:

“The thinnest and lightest Mac ever with every component meticulously redesigned to create a Mac that is just two pounds and 13.1 mm thin. The new MacBook features a stunning 12-inch Retina display that is the thinnest ever on a Mac, an Apple-designed full-size keyboard which is dramatically thinner and highly responsive, the all-new Force Touch trackpad that brings a new dimension of interactivity to the Mac, an incredibly compact USB-C port for data transfer, video out and charging in a single connector, and a new battery design that maximizes every millimeter of space to deliver all day battery life.”
