As previously rumored, Apple on Monday unveiled a brand new MacBook during its Apple Watch event.
The new MacBook — available in silver, gold or space gray — has an all-metal enclosure and weighs less than 2 lbs. Just 13.1mm thick, it offers a brand new keyboard, with keys that are 40% thinner than the traditional kind.
There’s a 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge coverglass and 2304 by 1440 pixels. Apple says it is the thinnest display ever built into a Mac, and that it consumes 30% less energy.
The new MacBook also features a new “Force Touch” trackpad with a glass multitouch surface and a taptic engine. It’s unhinged, and its feedback mechanism can be controlled via software.
The Force Touch trackpad will include new gestures which allow users to perform actions based on the context and pressure of a tap or click.
