New MacBook announced with 12-inch Retina display with only 1 USB port

It weighs just 2 pounds and, at 12 inches, will sit in between Apple's lightest MacBook Air models. It's 24 percent thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air, measuring 13.1mm in thickness. There's an all-new keyboard, which spans the full width of the new MacBook. The keyboard features a new "butterfly mechanism" for a better, "much more precise" typing experience. The keyboard also has individual LED lighting for each key, helping to make the device that little bit thinner.

 The touchpad has also been overhauled: it no longer clicks. There are four force sensors, one in each corner, and the "click feel" is managed by software.

The new MacBook has a 12-inch screen, which joins Apple's Retina display family with a 2304 x 1440 resolution. Apple says that it consumes 30 percent less power than previous displays.

The MacBook has a new, flatter-style keyboard with a revised mechanism that enables more even key presses, and letting it “be thinner, and more precise in its illumination,” The machine also gets a new Force Touch trackpad has Force Sensors and a Taptic engine. You can click anywhere and get the same feel over the entire surface.

The new MacBook contains 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0, which is table stakes these days. But it’s also significant what the machine omits. The new MacBook has that single USB-C port and a headphone jack, but no regular USB (at least while the unit is charging), Thunderbolt, or Ethernet ports.

Apple also unveiled some minor updates to the existing smaller MacBooks. The MacBook Air now has 5th-generation Broadwell Core i5 and i7 processors, Thunderbolt 2, and 2x faster flash storage. The 13-inch MacBook Pro gets similar upgrades, plus the Force Touch trackpad and another hour of battery life (10 hours). All of the revised existing models ship today.

Two configurations are available: a 1.1GHz dual-core Intel Core M model with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD for $1,299, and a 1.2GHz version with a 512GB SSD for $1,599. Both machines will ship April 10th, and you can get one in silver, space gray, or gold.
