Apple's MacBook Is Now Faster and Comes in Rose Gold

First introduced in March of 2015, Apple’s 12″ MacBook is its sleekest to date and now the thin, elegant notebook is getting an upgrade — even in advance of WWDC 2016. Now featuring Intel’s sixth-generation Core M processor, the notebook boasts a 10 to 20% processing improvement over its predecessor and a graphics performance that’s 25% better. That new processor also promises better battery life and the MacBooks should offer about an hour of additional battery life over the original — up to 10 hours of web browsing and 11 hours of video. Maybe best of all for those who don’t need the added guts is the new color option: you can now pick up a MacBook in Apple’s popular Rose Gold hue.

The new MacBooks start at $1,299 USD for a 1.1GHz Core M3 processor with 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage and go up to $1,599 USD for a 1.3GHz Core M7 with 8GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. The new options will be available online later today before hitting retail stores April 20.
