With a Retina display and a thin, lightweight design, the gold Apple 12" MacBook (Early 2016) provides both portability and performance. Measuring just 0.5" (13.1mm) thin and weighing only 2 pounds, the MacBook is compact yet still has a premium feel, thanks to its unibody design.
12" Retina Display
The moment you open your MacBook, its gorgeous 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. With three million pixels on show and a resolution of 2304 x 1440, every photo leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail and every letter of text sharp and clear with crystal clarity. And it all comes to light on the thinnest Retina display ever on a Mac, meticulously honed to deliver a bold visual experience within an impossibly minimal design. It also includes IPS technology to enable a clear view from angles as wide as 178-degrees.
Full Size Keyboard
A comfortable, full-size keyboard is essential for a great notebook experience. But to fit one into the elegantly thin MacBook, Apple had to completely rethink how a keyboard is engineered and constructed. They redesigned each key and its underlying mechanism — not only making the whole keyboard much thinner, but also allowing for more comfortable, precise and responsive typing. Even the backlighting is more accurate, with individual LEDs for each key that helps keys look clear and sharp.
Force Touch Trackpad
Apple have pushed the trackpad further than ever with their Force Touch trackpad. It has been engineered to provide a responsive, uniform click, no matter where you press. And underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying. You can now use a Force click to enable useful capabilities, like quickly looking up the definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press 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.
Mac OS X El Capitan
OS X powers everything you do on a Mac. And because Apple design both the hardware and software, OS X El Capitan is engineered to take full advantage of your MacBook capabilities. Designed to be as easy to use as it is beautiful to look at, it comes with an amazing collection of apps you’ll use — and love — every day.
