Premium, lightweight design

There is no denying the premium feel and design of the 12” MacBook and, although extremely lightweight, it is in no way flimsy. The stylish and streamlined chassis feels up to the challenge of everyday usage, and with four attractive colour options, the sleek aluminium case can exactly match your Apple iPhone and accessories. This little beauty is perfect if you’re looking for something lightweight and portable that still packs incredible tech specs.

Powerful performance

The 12” MacBook launched two years ago but has since had an update to make it more powerful than its predecessors. The new MacBook is equipped with new seventh-generation Intel Core M3, i5 and i7 processors and faster SSD storage. This delivers up to 20 per cent faster and more powerful performance, meaning your daily usage will run smoother than ever.
This improved performance is still virtually silent, thanks to Apple’s fanless architecture. Running on just 5 watts of power, the laptop generates less heat which eliminates the need for a cooling fan. While your MacBook is working hard and delivering you a smooth, fast performance, you won’t hear a thing.

The are some great portable chargers on the market that will fully charge your Laptop from around £50. This is invaluable to those working on the move.

With External MacBook Dock

The MacBook has one cable port… yes, only one. You can plug in an external display and utilise an extra screen easily – we have a selection of third-party 4K displays with USB-C. Most new external displays can also be used as a charger and docking station for your MacBook. You can also use this port to charge of course and it allows the design of the MacBook to appear sleek and neat.

The screen is a beauty

As Retina display has been around for a while now, it is no surprise the MacBook is sporting it, although it is not available on the MacBook Air. The colour accuracy and a screen that can scale to 1440-by-900 (Hi-DPI), the potential to edit photo and video is impressive. External displays will support 4k resolution.
