New MacBook, notebook masa depan


Pertengahan bulan Maret 2015 ini, Apple mengumumkan peluncuran varian baru seri MacBook yang dinamai “hanya” Macbook saja. Sebelumnya Apple sudah mempunyai seri MacBook Air yang sebelumnya juga merupakan seri notebook paling tipis (tapi sudah banyak diikuti oleh pesaingnya) dan seri MacBook Pro untuk heavy Duty (pekerjaan yang membutuhkan processing yang lebih banyak seperti photo editing, video rendering dan lain-lain).

With the new MacBook, we set out to do the impossible: engineer a full-size experience into the lightest and most compact Mac notebook ever. That meant reimagining every element to make it not only lighter and thinner but also better. The result is more than just a new notebook. It’s the future of the notebook.

Cuplikan diatas diambil dari website resmi apple tepatnya dihalaman new Macbook menyebutkan bahwa new Macbook bukan hanya sekedar seri notebook baru, tapi ini adalah masa depan dari notebook. New MacBook saat ini merupakan notebook paling tipis dan ringan didunia, yaitu setebal 13.1 mm dengan disertai retina display khas apple yang sudah diakui dunia.

Beberapa orang merasa bingung dengan diluncurkannya seri MacBook yang baru ini, karena sebelumnya Apple sudah mempunyai MacBook Air yang juga merupakan seri notebook tipis dan ringan dari Apple.

Dari sini spek sebenarnya bisa kita lihat bahwa New MacBook bukanlah seri yang diluncurkan untuk menggantikan seri MacBook Air, melainkan benar-benar segment notebook baru dari Apple. Bisa dibilang adiknya MacBook Air.

Yang boleh dibilang terobosan baru adalah selain ketipisan new Macbook, new MacBook juga hanya menyediakan satu slot colokan saja. Dari situ bisa digunakan untuk fungsi apapun, dari mulai charging, USB storage cable, HDMI slot dan lain-lain. New MacBook mengandalkan koneksi WiFi untuk interkoneksi dengan device lain, termasuk dengan internet.
