With a 12-inch stunning Retina display, optimized pixel design, and gorgeous color options (including gold), the Apple MacBook MK4N2LL/A is a very nice looking machine. It comes with a new Apple-designed, full-sized keyboard that features a “butterfly mechanism” for typing precision. The keys are larger, yet thinner, and allow for a comfortable typing experience.
Weighing just two pounds and measuring 13.1-mm thin, this is the thinnest and lightest MacBook ever. Two things everyone looks for in an ideal laptop are functionality and mobility. It’s not always easy to combine these two aspects, as a lightweight device doesn’t normally have the room for powerful hardware and a large storage capacity. This isn’t the case with the new MK4N2LL/A unit; it offers both functionality and mobility very effectively.
The trackpad is another important feature of any notebook or MacBook. This one is designed to allow easy navigation of the laptop’s features and interface, as it is “pressure-sensitive”. Depending on the amount of pressure you put down when using the trackpad, you can create specific functions. Its Taptic Engine utilizes haptic feedback to deliver click sensations.
The Apple MacBook MK4N2LL/A comes with all of these great specs:
• OS X 10.122 operating system
• M 1.2 GHz Intel Core dual-core processor (up to 2.6 GHz with turbo speed)
• 8GB soldered RAM (1600 MHz)
• 12 LCD widescreen display / LED backlighting / 2304 x 1440 resolution
• 256GB or 512 GB flash storage
• Intel HD graphics 5300
Apple MacBook MK4N2LL/A Storage Speed
Since the storage comes in flash form, it’s a lot faster than the average spinning hard drive. With Turbo Speed technology, the processor adds some speed to the MacBook as well. Choose the amount of storage space you need. You can save money if you stick with 256GB, which is plenty for the typical user. However, if you like to download a lot of large multimedia files, you might want to opt for the 512GB storage.
All of your data syncing and charging needs will be taken care of with the versatile USB-C port. The native DIsplayPort offers video output (via adapter) for VGA and HDMI. While the 12-inch display is nice to look at, many people prefer to connect their laptops up to larger displays.
No Apple MacBook MK4N2LL/A review is complete without mention of its long battery life. The 39.7 Wh capacity battery is capable of lasting for up to ten hours when fully charged. Also, the fanless architecture means that the system runs quietly. There is effective heat dissipation to prevent the machine from overheating.
