New MacBook Air & Pro


Retina MacBook; New MacBook Air and Pro


—The new 12-inch Retina MacBook (starting at $1,299) is separate from Apple's Air and Pro lines. It weighs 2 pounds and is 24 percent thinner than the current MacBook Air. It comes in three iPhone- and iPad-style colors (gold, silver and dark gray). There's a newly redesigned keyboard and trackpad that can tell taps from presses (Apple calls it "Force Touch"). It boasts only one external port, a USB-C connector that will handle charging and external storage and displays; it will not have the traditional MagSafe charger available in other MacBook models. Follow the link above for processor and graphics details.


—Updates to the Macbook Air and Pro lines were slight, including processor and graphics upgrades, and a redesigned Force Touch trackpad.
