So after my 4-year life cycle, the 12-inch Macbook was officially killed and removed from Apple home page by Apple today.
This death declaration has been predicted since Apple launched the 2018 Airbook earlier this year when Apple's new Air model has all the features of 12 inches while it is cheaper than $ 200. Although not as light as a 12-inch Macbook, the Macbook Air 2018 is not too heavy and has a configuration much better than the 12-inch Macbook. The new Macbook Air is also integrated with TouchID.
It can be said that the 12-inch Macbook is not too prominent in the recent Macbook series of Apple anymore because this model has a high price while being very picky user. Not everyone is willing to give up more than 30 million VND for a laptop to handle normal tasks. Of course this Macbook is still very beautiful with a slim body and a body weight of only 900g. To achieve this, this is the first model Apple removed from all traditional ports and left only one USB-Type C port. In addition to achieving this thinness, Apple also had to design. Back on your keyboard and the 12-inch Macbook 2015 is the first model to use the first-generation Butterfly keyboard and this is also the only model that uses this generation, the following pro versions Apple has raised to Butterfly 2.
The 4-year lifespan is not too long for a product line, but now with the move Apple has upgraded the 13-inch non-touchbar Macbook Pro to a version with TouchBar that only shortens the 2 3-port grays. The 12-inch Macbook is only serving a very small number of customers that they can completely switch to using the 2018 Macbook Air.
