Apple’s new and improved MacBook is faster and comes in rose gold

Apple MacBook Rose Gold

Apple has gone ahead and completely refreshed its 12-inch MacBook lineup, infusing the series with new processors, longer battery life and better graphics performance. Even the 13-inch MacBook Air has been updated with 8GB of RAM as a standard among all the configurations.

The big news here is the introduction of the first rose gold MacBook in all its pink glory. Unfortunately, the single USB-C port design has been carried forward, meaning you’ll still have to shell out additional cash for an adapter to connect things like a charger and HDMI cable simultaneously.

The updated 12-inch MacBook packs a 6th-gen dual-core Intel Core m3, m5 or m7 SoC which clock in at 1.1GHz, 1.2GHz and 1.3GHz, respectively. A Turbo Boost option increases the speed of the last to 3.1GHz only. Apple claims the new Intel HD Graphics 515 GPU makes the laptop’s performance up to 25% faster.

Apple has additionally equipped the notebook with faster PCIe-based SSD storage to make sure it conducts everyday tasks without lags. The device also contains a brand-new terraced and contoured battery design. This combined with the firm’s own custom technology has helped it to extend the battery life of the gadget by 1 hour to a total of 10 hours.

Here’s a neat look at the top specifications of the Apple MacBook:
