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 expensive，starting 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 you’re 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 there’re 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, they’re 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. There’re 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!!!
