Mashable Tech says:
“On the one hand, it’s ultra-light at two pounds, has nine hours of battery life, brandishes a gorgeous 12-inch Retina display and comes in three colors — including gold. On the other hand, the super-thin laptop has a new, flatter keyboard with keys that have less travel depth, an underpowered Intel Core M processor and a single USB-C port. It also requires a zillion dongles to work with your existing accessories.
The new MacBook also starts at $1,299, which is more than the non-Retina, relatively port-heavy and more powerful 11-inch MacBook Air, which starts at $899. Even the beefier 13-inch MacBook Air is cheaper at $999.”
