MacBook (12-inch, 2015)

 

Apple's new MacBook is the laptop in its most basic, stripped-back form – I called it a laptop for the iPad generation when Apple first announced it. This slight, 12-inch laptop weighs just 920g and, like the original 2008 MacBook Air, removes almost...

Elegant, fanless design ; Outstanding screen ; Surprisingly decent speakers ; Good battery life ; Awesome touchpad

Noisy keyboard ; Limited connections

New MacBook 2015 review: is this the way all laptops should be?

 

Apple's new MacBook is lighter than Air

Superb battery life ; So portable ; The future of laptop design

We want more power ; More USB-C extras needed ; Can't be your main machine

A genuinely unique laptop for those seeking a Retina display in the most compact and light chassis around, the fact remains that the new MacBook’s many compromises mean it won’t suit everyone.

Apple MacBook review: Is port-free the future?

 

With its 12-inch super glossy Retina display and ultra portability, the new Apple MacBook promises users the chance to live the future of computing not tomorrow, but today. The 12-inch MacBook is all about portability. Apple has focused on creating a...

Small size, lightweight, quality screen, Force Touch trackpad

No standard ports, no touchscreen, no TouchID

The 12-inch MacBook is all about portability. Apple has focused on creating a laptop so thin, so sleek, so light, that everything else has been pushed by the wayside.

Apple MacBook 2015 review

 

Apple says it's reinvented the laptop; we just think that it's made a really, really nice one

Great everyday performance ; Terrific screen ; Amazing portability ; Big-sounding speakers ; Lovely, haptic touchpad

Lack of ports can be very frustrating ; Super-shallow keyboard ; By no means a powerhouse

The result of a singular vision for what a future laptop should be - and a lovely, desirable thing, despite the compromises

New Apple MacBook (12-inch): Stunning, super thin and oh so bling (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

Apple has announced a new MacBook Laptop that is even thinner and smaller than the MacBook Air, but more powerful than the iPad. The new 12-inch MacBook

MacBook review

 

Apple's rosier MacBook brings nippier performance

Gorgeous Rose Gold color ; Improved performance ; Terrific design ; Great speakers

Single USB-C port ; No price cut? ; Controversial keyboard

Apple has given the MacBook's performance a much-needed boost, and it helps OS X zip along much better. Its critical flaws remain, but the 2016 version is less of a risk than it was last year. We just wish it was a bit cheaper.

Apple new MacBook review (early 2015)

 

Although it's incredibly small and light, the new MacBook doesn't compromise on usability, but the performance and price may put some off

New MacBook 2015 review: Apple's super-light laptop dials back the power to turn on the style

 

A super-thin laptop for computer casuals that dials back the power to turn on the style.

Looks stunning ; Excellent screen ; Incredibly light and slim ; Great software

Divisive keyboard ; Not overly powerful ; Expensive

The new MacBook sure is a handsome device but it is also the point where Apple's portable computing lines have converged so much that the differences are no longer as clearly defined, leading to a more personal, subjective choice to make. Some will...
