The goal with the new MacBook was to do the impossible: deliver a complete full-size experience in the lightest and most compact Mac notebook. Every fundamental element has been reimagined to make it not only thinner but also better. The result is more than just a new notebook. It’s the future of the notebook.
A full-size keyboard.In a fraction of space.
Fitting a full-size keyboard into the elegantly thin new MacBook required completely rethinking how a keyboard is engineered and constructed. Each key and its underlying mechanism were redesigned — not only making the whole keyboard much thinner, but also allowing for more comfortable, precise and responsive typing that just feels right.
The moment you open your MacBook, its gorgeous 12-inch Retina display with edge-to-edge glass brings everything into focus. Every photo leaps off the screen in rich, vibrant detail. Over three million pixels render each letter with crystal clarity. And it all comes to light on the thinnest, most energy-efficient Retina display ever on a Mac.

A comfortable, full-size keyboard is essential for a great notebook experience. But fitting a full-size keyboard into the elegantly thin MacBook required completely rethinking how a keyboard is engineered and constructed. Each key and its underlying mechanism were designed to not only make the whole keyboard much thinner, but also allow for more comfortable, precise and responsive typing that just feels right.
The trackpad, pushed even
further with Force Touch.
With the new MacBook comes a whole new way to experience a trackpad. The Force Touch trackpad is engineered to deliver a responsive, uniform click no matter where you press the surface. And underneath, force sensors detect how much pressure you’re applying and give you new ways to interact with your Mac. You can use a Force click to enable new capabilities, like quickly looking up the definition of a word or previewing a file just by clicking and continuing to press the trackpad. You’ll also experience haptic feedback — a tactile vibration from the trackpad that adds the sense of touch to what you see on the screen. These advanced capabilities work in addition to all the intuitive Multi-Touch gestures Mac users love. You’ll be more in touch with your Mac than ever before. Without lifting a finger.
