Schiller: Yet just consumes 5 watts
Schiller: So what did we do with the rest of that space. We filled it with batteries
Yep, it's Core M -- that means we'll really have to test one to see what it can do. The Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro with Core M, came out in the Fall of 2014 and disappointed with both performance and battery
Schiller: The team went so much further with battery chemistry in MacBook. Traditional cells are rectangular. But doesn't work if have product this thin and contoured.
Schiller: What team has done is amazing. Created batteries in sheets that can be terraced with contoured shapes
Ok, to solve the Core M "known issue," the MacBook is pretty much all battery on the inside.
Schiller: Far more efficient. 35% more battery in same same. All-day battery life in the new MacBook
Schiller: Up to 9 hours wireless Web browsing
9-10 hours of battery life is less than you might expect from a standard 13-inch Air.
Schiller: How do you connect with the world. This is our vision for the future of the notebook
Schiller: Only intelligent vision is one without wires
Schiller: Why both 802.11ac and bluetooth built in
Apple really, really doesn't want you to use any wires with this thing.
Schiller: Can connect and share like never before. This is the vision of the future of notebook. One of extreme portability
Schiller: When want to watch content on TV, we do with AirPlay. Share files with AirDrop. When want to get on cellular network, can initiate hotspot on iPhone
Schiller: Do have a port on here for power
It'll be interesting to see how this co-exists with new possible super-iPad.
Schiller: If have port on here, make most versatile connecter ever put in notebook. One connector supports USB, DisplayPort, VGA, power, etc
Use AirDrop, initiate a hotspot from your iPhone, etc. Hopefully not putting the MacBook into too much of a walled garden.
Schiller: New standard USB-C
Schiller: Going to see it appear on more products. First see it here
Schiller: Cable is a third the size of standard USB cable. easy to use b/c reversible .(looks like cable for iPhone)
So, the single port on the system, USB-C, will support -- through dongles, I guess -- everything from power, ethernet, HDMI, etc.
The accessory-making guys must be salivating.
Schiller: This is the new MacBook, with is incredible keyboard, multitouch trackpad, 12-inch Retina Display. Our most dense logic board ever. All packed into the thinnest, lightest, most beautiful MacBook ever made
Hard to say Apple's skipped anything people have been asking for
Schiller: Silver, Space Gray and "Stunning gold"
Plus three colors. But, how much will it cost?
Schiller: Most environmentally-friendly notebook we've ever made
I'm snowballing $1,299 to start.
Schiller: I think the team's probably proudest of this one. Also the world's most energy-efficient notebook
Schiller: we really love and can't be prouder of this notebook
But, we have to watch a video first, before we get that key info.
Video with Jony Ive, head designer
Ive: Simplify to simplest components, create most efficeint design possible. Product that couldn't exist without invention across many disciplines
Apple shares inching up now. Up 2 percent, or $2.62, to $129.22.
