12-inch macbook Vs. 13-inch macbook air How Does Apple’s New Notebook Fit into the Mac Mix?

Slide 1

Apple just introduced it’s new notebook…

Slide 2

The 12-inch Macbook.

Slide 3

Which has some very nice features.

Slide 4

The new laptop has a Retina display, which the Macbook Air doesn’t have…

Slide 5

It’s thinner, and nearly 1 pound lighter than the Air…

Slide 6

It has a new Force Touch track pad, that can sense how hard your pressing…

Slide 7

And it comes with the latest USB Type-C port, which can be used for both power and peripherals.

Slide 8

But there are a few problems.

Slide 9

For example…

Slide 10

There’s just one port.

Slide 11

Slide 12

Which means that unless you have an adapter, you can only plug one thing in at time.

Slide 13

But that’s not the only issue.

Slide 14

The webcam on the MacBook shoots in just 480p.

Slide 15

While the MacBook Air shoots in 720p HD.

Slide 16

And the MacBook has just 9 hours of battery life…

Slide 17

Compared to 12 hours for the MacBook Air.

Slide 18

Oh, and the processing speed on the MacBook is slower than on the Air.

Slide 19

Which led Andrew Cunningham from Ars Technica to write this…

Slide 20

"If you’ve got a 2013 or 2015 MacBook Air, it will be a step down. If you have a 2012 MacBook Air, it’s a step sideways at best.”

Slide 21

And for all of this, Apple is charging$300 more for the MacBook than the Air.

Slide 22

Has Apple gone insane?

Slide 23


Slide 24

The company is simply diversifying its product line to appeal to different users.

Slide 25

Adding the MacBook allows Apple to offer a new laptop at a premium price, while still offering the Pro and Air models.

Slide 26

Apple’s Mac lineup accounts for 12% of the company’s sales.

Slide 27

So clearly computers aren’t Apple’s biggest money maker.

Slide 28

But the Mac sales growth has outpaced PC growth for the past 10 years.

Slide 29

And Apple is trying to capitalize on that growth by offering a wider range of laptops.

Slide 30

Apple investors should see the MacBook as less of smaller, overpriced MacBook Air.

Slide 31

And more like an opportunity for Apple to own even more of the PC market.

Slide 32
