12-inch MacBook Gold

Apple unveiled its all-new 12" MacBook today and it comes complete with a 2304 x 1440 resolution Retina Display that consumes 30 percent less power than previous displays. Another notable difference is a non-clickable touchpad, which boasts four force sensors, one in each corner.

Laptop FAIL

Laptops come in all sizes, but there are a few things they probably shouldn't be used for, like selfies. Or, should you get the urge to tear apart an older laptop, a pizza box is not a smart alternative to use as a case. If you just so happen to be burning a candle, make sure it's far away from where you're sitting, or else "hole in display error" may occur.

You've seen the 12-inch MacBook Air spy shots, now check out a few renders by the very talented Martin Hajek of the laptop in all three colors: champagne gold, slate gray, and silver. While new information has been sparse, it's most likely that this ultra slim laptop will have only a single USB-C port, along with a headphone jack. There are rumors that Apple may offer a 16GB RAM option and / or a Retina Display, but we'll probably have to wait until WWDC in June to see if any of those are true. Let's just hope there isn't a waiting list for the gold model, like there was for Apple's iPhone 6 / 6 Plus at launch. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery.
