So… Apple have recently released further information on their next generation of Apple products, including a new MacBook and of course their much awaited Apple Watch.
Let’s take a quick look at the all new 12” Macbook. With two models to choose from and available in Space Grey, Traditional Silver and my personal favourite GOLD! The new styling and design is what you would now come to expect from Apple…. Flawless.
With an all new multi-purpose USB-C port to support:
- USB 3.1 Gen 1 (up to 5 Gbps)
- Native DisplayPort 1.2 video output
- VGA output using USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter (sold separately)
- HDMI video output using USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter (sold separately)
The New 12″ MacBook is more efficient, lighter and thinner with no internal moving components for a silent user experience.
The reviewers are a little more guarded in their praise of the announcement suggesting it is polarizing and brilliant all at the same time.
Stephen Fenech from Techguide said the sheer invention and the technology in this is very impressive but the fact it only has one USB-C port to support your power, usb devices, displays etc all at the same time is going to pose a little bit of a problem.
Trevor Long from EFTM agrees that the one USB-C port is probably the biggest issue with this product but also asks if this is meant to be a purely wireless machine then why doesnt it come with a SIM card slot and a touch screen.
Obviously with any Apple product there is going to be division but I feel they have upped their game especially in the styling department, the simplistic approach really pays off with the Gold option sure to be massive a hit.
