Core “M” and the New MacBook

Its should be no surprise that the crew here at in2tek strive to find as many ways as possible to incorporate technology into our daily routines.  Whether its going out for a social work dinner or cruising the local night life, technology has a way of making just about every moment infinatley better.  I’ll stop beating around the bush here and just say that the new 12″ MacBook is one seriously cool tool to incorporate into your daily life.  As someone who loves tablet computing, I just can’t shake the idea of having a great screen, keyboard, and incredible battery life in a laptop.  For years Apple has been on the forefront of this new wave of ultrabooks, showing no signs of letting up on the competition. But what makes this new MacBook the “best macboook we’ve ever built” according to Apple? Tim Cook and Company would have you believe that its the great retina screen and stunning battery life. I on the other hand have a much different take on the matter.

I think the special sauce that will allow Apple to sell these little contraptions at $1200 a pop at a blistering rate, is the little processor that could. I’m referring to the much hyped and often criticized Intel Core M processor.  The critics claim that its a slow dual core processor from four years ago shrunk down using a 14 nano meter process.  But looking at the logic board inside the new 12″ Macbook its easy to see the magic that Apple poured into making this the best ever macbook.  The logic board I reference is roughly 60% smaller that the one in the 11″ MacBook Air (2014). That dramatic size decrease allowed Apple to retain the rock star battery performance as its small cousin, but increase the screen and keyboard size to that of a comparable 13″ laptop.  Reports out of Cupterino and various retail outlets arent boding well for late arriving potential MacBook customers. Sellouts of the product are the norm and back orders seem to be the current reality.  As for me, I’m still using Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro from last year as my work horse. I can’t this with many products, but I’ll stay off the bleeding edge and wait for 12″ MacBook 2.0.  For more news and expert reviews on today’s hottest tech, keep it locked on to in2tek for the latest updates.
