Apple just released the new 2016 MacBook that offers refreshed specs over the model introduced last year.

Apple included the latest sixth-generation Intel Core M processor with the MacBook with options to configure each laptop with up to a 1.3GHz chip. It also added faster memory to the notebook. Other features include a new Intel HD Graphics 515 chip that Apple says should offer up to a 25 percent boost in graphics performance over last year’s MacBook, and improved battery life. Customers should now expect up to 11 hours of movie playback through iTunes or 10 hours of Web browsing, Apple said.

Specs aside, Apple is also launching a new rose gold MacBook option, perfect for folks who prefer that color for their phones and tablets. All MacBook models start at $1,299.

And, last but not least, the MacBook Air is getting a minor update – Apple said all 13-inch models will now ship with 8GB of RAM standard. Not bad.
