Apple has a fancy smartwatch coming out next month, but its new MacBook might wind up stealing the spotlight. The exceptionally thin laptop is ushering in a new frontier for Apple—and laptops in general—showcasing an exciting type of personal computer. It’s like the Air, but not; it’s like the iPad, but not. That’s what makes the device so exciting. While we got our own hands on the device early last month, someone was already lucky enough to unbox Apple’s 12-inch MacBook.

The new MacBook weighs in at just 2 pounds, and sports a 12-inch display (2304×1440) and Intel Core M processor. Apple says the laptop is 24-percent thinner than Apple’s thinnest MacBook Air; that difference isn’t easy to portray on video or in pictures, but you’ll understand once you pick the laptop up. It’s hard to believe there’s an entire (albeit underpowered) computer in such a small space.

The good news is that the small frame feels as strong and durable as ever, something we noticed when playing with the device last month. Some of the device’s other big specs include a new Force Touch trackpad, and the inclusion of USB Type-C. You’ll be able to pick up the new MacBook in silver, gold and space gray, with a starting price of $1,299.

Check out the unboxing from Tinhte.vn if you want to see MacBook in action ahead of its release later this month.
