MacBook fam­ily

Look no fur­ther for the ul­ti­mate in feath­ery light and thin note­books

Mac Format - - BUYER’S GUIDE -

The MacBook is Ap­ple’s lat­est ad­di­tion to its note­book fam­ily, and is de­signed for porta­bil­ity above all else. It’s ridicu­lously thin (just 13.1mm), whis­per-quiet, weighs un­der a kilo­gram and yet man­ages to in­clude a full­size QWERTY key­board, Force Touchen­abled track­pad and Retina dis­play. One com­pro­mise is the lack of con­nec­tiv­ity – you get one soli­tary USB-C port that serves mul­ti­ple pur­poses: as a charger, USB 3.0 port or dis­play out­put us­ing ap­pro­pri­ate ca­bles.

The MacBook Air may be cheaper and more pow­er­ful, but the MacBook has been en­gi­neered to per­form ev­ery­day tasks like word pro­cess­ing or web brows­ing while on the go, thanks to a bat­tery that goes 7.5 hours be­tween charges. Its In­tel Core M pro­ces­sor is given a help­ing hand by the quick flash stor­age and 8GB of RAM.
