New faster Apple 12″ MacBook with better battery and rose gold!

iPhone and iPad both got new models at Apple’s Spring Event, so it was only fair they gave their notebooks some time in the sun too. Step in Apple’s newly refreshed 12″ Retina MacBook, with new faster Skylake processors and improved battery life. Oh, and a new rose gold colour option to match up nicely with your iPhone.

Faster processors

Processor-wise, the new 12″ MacBook now sports Intel’s sixth-generation Skylake Core M, and range from 1.1GHz to 1.3GHz. It’s only the second Mac to benefit from Skylake after the 27″ 5K iMac last year. The memory’s had a bit of a bump too, from 1600MHz modules in the 2015 edition to 1866MHz, and the integrated graphics have also been upgraded to Intel’s more powerful 515 module for what Apple say will give 25% better performance.

Better battery

The new 12″ MacBook also promises improved battery performance, supposedly lasting up to 10 hours while browsing the web and 11 hours of continuous movie playback (this is about an hour more than the estimates for the 2015 model). That’s more than enough for the average work day or long journey!

Now in rose gold

For many customers, this is the real biggie: the 12″ MacBook is now available in the rose gold colour option to go along with the previous silver, grey and gold.

Your options

The new 2016 12″ MacBook comes with 8GB RAM as standard, 1.1-1.2GHz (1.3GHz built to order), between 256-512GB storage, and in the aforementioned range of colour options. You can order yours from now!
