the new MacBook is a marvel of engineering. It’s beautiful, and far more functional than a computer this size has any right to be. But it’s not for me, and I doubt it’s for you, either. It’s just too damn thin.
The latest crazy-thin Apple computer—a tiny 12-inch laptop with a incredible high-res display. So tiny you could practically stuff it into a large purse. So thin that it required Apple to create an entirely new type of ultra-shallow keyboard and touchpad so you can actually use it for work. So minimalist that it only includes a single I/O port—a do-it-all USB Type-C jack that’s clearly the future, but requires dongles for now. A little pricy at $1300 for the base version, though you get 8GB of RAM and 256GB of speedy solid state storage for the money.
