Rocket Yard Unboxes New Rose Gold 12-Inch MacBook

Yesterday, Apple announced the release of a new 12-inch MacBook model. The release is mostly a specs bump, with the exterior design unchanged. The MacBook still features just the single USB Type-C port. As far as internal changes, the MacBook now features sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M processors up to 1.3 GHz, with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz, faster 1866 MHz memory, and extended battery life.

However, Apple did make one very minor aesthetic change, bringing the Rose Gold color (more commonly known as pink…) over from the Apple Watch, iPhone and iPad lines.
