  • The machine sitting on my lap is just a laptop.

  • But it’s more than that. It’s the future of laptops.

  • And it might not be your next laptop. But it’s definitely going to be the one after that.

  • It’s the new MacBook, and it’s AMAZING!

  • TINY MACBOOK, BIG FUTURE

  • The MacBook has one purpose in life

  • to be as small and portable as possible

  • without making you give up having a real laptop with a real keyboard.

  • It’s a ridiculously thin, incredibly light, almost impossibly small machine.

  • It has a high-resolution display, a fancy new keyboard,

  • and a trackpad that fits inside this tiny frame.

  • And it lasts about a full day of single charge.

  • Oh, and it’s beautiful.

  • To make it this small,

  • Apple had to invent some parts that go into it and compromise something like speed and ports.

  • But the result is a 12-inch, aluminum laptop that only weights about 2 pounds.

  • I seriously can’t get over how small and light this thing feels.

  • It’s like the first MacBook Air all over again.

  • And like the first MacBook Air, it’s expensivestarting at about $1299.

  • So, how did Apple make this?

  • Like I said: Inventions and Compromises.

  • Let’s start with the inventions.

  • The regular check-click keyboard that you see in every other Mac was too thick for this MacBook,

  • so Apple redesigned the keys.

  • They're wider but shallower.

  • With all new mechanism underneath,

  • even though they don't travel as far, they still feel really clicky.

  • And they even press down more evenly.

  • The first time you type on it, it does feel a little weird,

  • and it sounds kind of weird, too. But then you get used to it.

  • You can let your fingers gently glide over the keys,

  • or if you're like me, you can bang away as though you are using a typewriter.

  • Either works, and either way feels really good.

  • I also love the screen.

  • It’s a Retina screen with 2304 by 1440 pixels.

  • But Apple gives you four different scales to few things

  • because at full resolution it would be impossible to see anything.

  • The smallest scale is the one I use.

  • It gives me the same effect of screen size of a 13-inch MacBook Air only inside this tiny package.

  • Apple also changed the screen technology

  • to make it thinner, brighter, and more energy-efficient.

  • It’s probably my favorite thing about this laptop.

  • But the craziest invention is this forced-touch trackpad.

  • Inside it are four sensing-pads that can detect pressure.

  • That means when you click the top and the bottom, it feels exactly the same.

  • When you press down, there is a click, but youre not clicking.

  • Instead, there’s a electronic magnate inside that makes you feel a click.

  • You can even adjust how strong that click feels.

  • Apple has built a all-source of tricks into the OS 10 to take advantage of it.

  • You can force-click to get definition of a word,

  • you can speed through a video in a variable speeds,

  • and eventually software of Mac could give you physical feedback depending what you are doing.

  • Like in iMovie, where the trackpad gives you a small click when you reach the end of a clip.

  • It’s a little weird, but it’s fun to imagine other possibilities.

  • And therere other invention inside the MacBook.

  • The batteries are tiered, so the more that we can canned inside.

  • Apple says it lasts around 9 hours.

  • And our test says it lasts around 8 as long as you don’t push the processor too hard.

  • And if you really take it easy, you can have it last a long as 10 hours.

  • Those are all the inventions.

  • But now, let’s talk about the compromises.

  • The first thing is that it uses a processor that we haven’t really seen on a Mac yet

  • the Intel Core M(首款採用 14 奈米製程技術的處理器).

  • The base model, which is what I’m testing,

  • runs what seems like a pretty pokey 1.1 gigahertz,

  • but it can go into a turbo-mode,

  • that makes about as fast as a four-year-old 11-inch MacBook Air.

  • That seems pretty slow, but what matters is that

  • this Mac feels fast enough for most of what I do, and a little bit too slow for the rest of it.

  • Web-browsing, E-mail, Twitter, Evernote,

  • all the usual apps that I use the fast majority of time runs just fine.

  • But open up a big photo library or try to edit a video in iMovie

  • and you'll eventually end up waiting.

  • It’s kind of like the ChromeBook

  • but instead of being limited by the web, you're limited by the speed.

  • For a lot of people, that tradeoff is worth it.

  • It probably would be for me.

  • Using that processor means that Apple can have a tiny logic board inside it.

  • And it doesn't need a fan at all.

  • It’s completely silent and though it does get a little warm, it’s never hot.

  • But there’s one more tradeoff that probably isn't worth it

  • -at least it’s not yet-it’s this port.

  • It’s called USB Type-C.

  • Other than the headphone jack, it’s the only port.

  • You use it for the power, you use it for connecting a monitor,

  • you use it for USB devices, iPhones, cameras, SD card readers, whatever.

  • And for all of those things, right now, you are going to need adaptors.

  • Since USB Type-C is brand new,

  • there aren't any devices that use it yet without using an adaptor.

  • So, for example, I haven’t been able to plug in my Apple computer into my Apple Cinema Display

  • because I don't have the adaptor yet.

  • That’s weird and annoying.

  • You can spend the same or less money on a laptop

  • that’s a little bit bigger and that doesn’t have any of these hassles.

  • Now here’s the thing about those two compromises, theyre about the future.

  • Someday, we'll have a processor that fits inside this tiny body

  • that is powerful enough to everything you really need it to do.

  • And someday, we won't need adaptors

  • because everything will just use the same plug.

  • For example, I was able to charge this MacBook of a standard battery brickthat was meant for a phone.

  • More than that, Apple’s betting that the only thing that you'll ever bother plug into this is the power cable.

  • But we're not there yet.

  • Wifi and Bluetooth are great,

  • but they're not as easy or as simple as plugging something in.

  • I think a lot of people remember the moment

  • when Steve Jobs pulled the original MacBook Air out of that interoffice memo envelope.

  • It was jaw-dropping.

  • But a lot of people forget that the very first MacBook Air had problems.

  • And some of the same problems as this MacBook.

  • Therere won’t enough ports, it was slow, and it was really expensive.

  • But the next version became the MacBook Air that you know now.

  • The one that everybody either uses or copies.

  • The one that change laptops for five years.

  • That’s this MacBook.

  • Even if you don’t buy it, it’s going to make your life better,

  • because in the future, all laptops are going to look like this.

  • But the problem with the future is it’s not here yet!

  • In the present, this laptop is kind of a hassle. But someday it won't be, and I can't wait!!!

The machine sitting on my lap is just a laptop.
