AP­PLE

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

It’s easy to fall for Ap­ple’s su­per-skinny gold lap­top that of­fers a Retina screen, a fan­less de­sign, an im­proved key­board, and a touch­pad with Tap­tic en­gine to al­low Force Touch ges­tures. At just 920g and 1.3cm thick, it’s also por­ta­ble enough to

make a Mac­Book Air look al­most chunky. But beauty like this comes at a price. Its one USB-C port may be the way of the fu­ture, but it will mean you must carry a few adap­tors in the present. Also, the Mac­Book can’t match the Mac­Book Air in some key spec­i­fi­ca­tions, in­clud­ing bat­tery life.
