Background and Identification ¶ 

Apple announced the new MacBook at their March 9 unveiling alongside the Apple Watch. The redesigned 2015 MacBook is Apple's latest foray into ultraportable devices. It features a single USB-C port, runs on an Intel Core M processor, and at 13.1mm thick and 2.03 pounds it is thinner and lighter than the MacBook Air.

Available in three colors—silver, space grey, and gold—the new MacBook has a whole host of upgrades. It uses the a Force Touch trackpad—which Apple unveiled in their 13" MacBook Pro earlier this year—as well as a fully redesigned keyboard and a thinner 12-inch Retina display. The 39.7-watt-hour battery delivers up to 9 hours of web browsing and can be charged through the USB-C port.
