Priced at $1299 for the 1.1GHz/256GB model or $1599 for the 1.2 GHz/512 GB, it’s the simplest machine Apple has shipped in a while. In fact, the ordering page looks like that of an iPad or iPhone.
I don’t think that’s by accident. Everything about this computer screams “simplification.”
Excellent post by Stephen Hackett on the new MacBook. I agree with him that we are looking at the next generation of MacBook design. I expect to see Apple transition the entire Mac notebook line to this new design over the next few years.
