To get it this thin, they had to remove the articulated touchpad that you’ve gotten used to using—allegedly that’s fine though, as they’ve developed an entirely new technology that digitally simulates the feel of a clickable trackpad. Early reports indicate that it’s a bit awkward to use, but I’ve got my hopes up.
12-inch retina screen Pretty self explanatory. It’s the smallest, densest display that they’ve ever shoehorned into a laptop. This is a good thing.
The keyboard A bunch of techy terms are being used to describe this, but all that matters is that it’s full-sized and supposedly able to mimic the key feel of current full-size MacBooks.
Colors Just like the iPhone: Silver, “Space Gray”, and “Stunning Gold."
The price $1,299 starting price, with shipment beginning April 10th.
