MacBook available in multiple colors

Available in gold, space grey and silver.

More Muscle
in every millimetre.

Now equipped with seventh-generation Intel Core processors, MacBook is snappier than ever. From daily tasks like launching apps and opening files to more advanced computing, you can power through your day thanks to faster SSDs and Turbo Boost processing up to 3.6GHz.

Apple Macbook Processor

Squeezing the most
into it. And out of it.

Each component inside MacBook has been meticulously designed to get the most out of an incredibly thin and light enclosure. Optimised macOS draws on the powerful yet highly efficient processors using as little power as possible. Because no fan is needed to cool the computer, it has more room for battery cells to support you on the go, all day long.

turbo boost


Inside you'll find seventh-generation Intel Core m3, i5 and i7 processors with 14-nanometre process technology. This lets MacBook expertly combine energy efficiency with the performance needed to take on all sorts of tasks.

Fanless architechture

MacBook was built for virtually silent performance. Its processor runs on just 5 watts of power, which generates less heat and eliminates the need for a fan to cool the computer. Instead, the logic board is seated on an anisotropic graphite sheet that helps disperse any heat. So you won’t hear a thing while your MacBook is hard at work.

Storage and memory

Though its components are tiny, MacBook has an impressive capacity to store the files and run the applications you need every day. With up to 16GB of 1866MHz LPDDR3 onboard memory and up to 512GB of SSD storage, you get an amazingly thin and light notebook with snappy performance.

more capcity than standard
technology would allow


To achieve all-day battery life, 3 every millimetre of space inside MacBook was used. Apple's innovative terraced battery cell was custom shaped to fit the specific contours of the enclosure. The result is 35 per cent more battery cell capacity than would have been possible before.

A Retina display that takes everything to the edge.

The stunning 12-inch Retina display on MacBook is truly something to behold. With over 3 million pixels and edge-to-edge glass, every image leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. All on an amazingly thin Retina display.

To deliver the gorgeous Retina experience, Apple designed the pixels to create a larger aperture. This lets more light pass through, providing more energy-efficient LED backlighting while achieving the same vivid brightness.

Apple Macbook with redesigned keyboard

A comfortable, full-sized keyboard is an essential part of any notebook. To fit one into MacBook, Apple designed a keyboard from the ground up - including each key and its underlying mechanism. This makes the whole keyboard not only much thinner, but also more comfortable and precise, so your fingers feel right at home.

Full Size Keyboard

Enhanced butterfly mechanism.
Key to the keyboard.

Now, with Apple's second-generation butterfly mechanism, the keyboard experience is refined for greater comfort and responsiveness. So when your finger strikes a key, it goes down and bounces back with a crisp motion that you’ll appreciate the moment you start typing.

The Force Touch trackpad.
Press a little deeper, do a lot more.

The pressure-sensing capabilities of the Force Touch trackpad allow you to tell your MacBook what you want it to do based on subtle differences in pressure. Click anywhere to perform a variety of actions in different apps, all on the same surface, without lifting a finger. And the Taptic Engine provides haptic feedback that adds a sense of touch to what you see on the screen.

Touch Trackpad

Precise control at your fingertips.

Multi-Touch gestures make it easy and intuitive to interact with your MacBook. Scroll in any direction, swipe through web pages, pinch, rotate or Force click to unlock other useful capabilities.
