Apple’s MacBook lineup gets an upgrade with Skylake CPUs and faster RAM

Apple has just refreshed their MacBook lineup. The 12-inch MacBook gets the biggest update in the form of updated internals and a Rose Gold option. The 13-inch MacBook Air also gets updated and gets 8GB RAM as standard.

The 12-inch MacBook has stirred up quite some controversy with its single USB type-C port. Following the refresh, the Macbook will now tote Skylake processors (Core M) which can be clocked from 1.3GHz to 3.1GHz, Intel HD Graphics 515 and PCIe SSDs. The devices will be available in Gold, Silver, Space Grey and Rose Gold options. The RAM on the MacBook has also been bumped up to 1866MHz.

Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air gets a slight bump in spec in the form of 8GB RAM being made standard across all devices. We would have loved to see a Retina display on the Air though.
