The Force Touch trackpad necessarily involves new interactions; Wikipedia entries, precise Google Maps locations and other stats conveniently pop up with the flick of the index finger.

This is all delivered in a package that is 24% thinner than the baseline 11-inch MacBook Air, which is partially thankful to the complete void of a cooling fan; in fact, the new MacBook is also the first fan-less offering from the brand. A smaller logic board, Intel M core processor and custom all-day battery complete this offering from Apple – which has, as Jony Ive mentions, “Sets a new standard for portability.” All this points to the rhetoric of Apple as being not only the most aesthetically-minded tech brand out, but also one of the most convenient.
