Description

Enjoy all the power of a full size laptop with the added bonus of a compact, lightweight notebook thanks to the clever people at Apple. The MacBook Retina comes with a powerful Intel Core m3 processor, 8GB RAM and speedy 256GB flash storage.

Weighing less than 1kg and measuring 28.05cm x 19.65cm x 1.31cm, this MacBook makes the ideal companion for on the go work; and with up to 11 hours’ battery life you can work all day long unplugged.

Its 12-inch display comes in 2304 x 1440 resolution and along with the powerful Intel HD graphics card, you’ll benefit from excellent image clarity. Access the Internet instantly with the fast 802.11ac wireless technology and enjoy swift data transfer from the Bluetooth 4.0.

Of course, it’s not all about the features; you’ll also want to ensure your notebook looks the part. With the trusted sleek design from Apple and the standout gold colour, you’ll look every inch the professional.

  • A full-size keyboard

    A comfortable, full-size keyboard is essential for a great notebook experience. To create the keyboard, each key and its underlying mechanism have been redesigned - not only making the whole keyboard much thinner, but also allowing for more comfortable, precise, and responsive typing that just feels right.
  • Retina re-envisioned

    The moment you open the MacBook, its gorgeous 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. Every photo leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. Over 3 million pixels render each letter with crystal clarity. And it all comes to light on the thinnest, most energy-efficient Retina display ever on a Mac, meticulously honed to deliver a bold visual experience within an impossibly minimal design.
  • The trackpad, pushed even further with Force Touch

    The Force Touch trackpad is engineered to deliver a responsive, uniform click no matter where you press the surface. And underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you're applying and give you convenient ways to interact with your Mac. You can use a Force click to enable new capabilities, like quickly looking up the definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press on the trackpad. You'll also experience haptic feedback - a tactile vibration from the trackpad that adds the sense of touch to what you see on the screen. These advanced capabilities work in addition to all the intuitive Multi-Touch gestures Mac users love. You'll be more in touch with your Mac than ever before. Without lifting a finger.
  • Fully equipped for a wireless world

    The MacBook is designed to fit effortlessly into an increasingly wireless world. Just about anything you do with a notebook can now be done over the air, thanks to Apple software that takes full advantage of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless technology. So no matter where you are, you can connect to the web, transfer files, organize your photos, listen to music, and more - without being tied down.
  • Quietly astonishing

    The MacBook has been engineered from the ground up for silent, efficient performance. It starts with a powerful Intel Core processor that runs on low power, made even more efficient by optimizations throughout OS X Yosemite. Together the processor and OS X sip so little energy that the system generates very little heat, so no fan is required to cool the computer. That means when your MacBook is working, you won't hear a thing. And the logic board on which the processor sits has been completely redesigned to pack all the capability you expect in a Mac into as little space as possible.
  • All-day battery life

    People rely on Apple notebooks for all-day battery life, regardless of how compact they are. And with the slim MacBook enclosure, all-day battery life simply would not be achievable using traditional rectangular batteries. The unique battery technology was specifically designed to make use of every last millimeter of available space. The result is a terraced, contoured battery design that not only fits perfectly inside the incredibly slim MacBook, but also is unlike anything seen before in a notebook.
