Schiller: Made key cap even larger
Fingernail care is becoming so critical for these events.
Schiller: keys are much more precise, much more accurate, even if you strike them on the side. Beautiful keyboard even in the dark. LED lighting system for each key. Thinner and more precise in illumination
But Apple says this is shallower, but with a larger face for each key. The backlight has a light for each key, which is nice -- backlit keyboards sometimes blow you out in low light.
Schiller: The perfect size display is 12-inch display with full edge to edge cover glass
Schiller: Beautiful of course. It's a Retina Dispaly. 2304X1440 pixels. Just over 3.3 million pixels
As predicted, 12-inch Retina display. -- 2304x1440 -- so much for following the PC industry standard.
Schiller: The panel is just 0.88mm thin. Thinnest display ever built into a Mac
Amazing that this hasn't had a ton of leaked pics and specs before now.
Schiller: Larger aperture for light. Individual pixel made of red green and blue. Miniaturized. At same brightness, consumes 30% less energy. It truly is the best display we've ever built onto a Mac
Schiller: Next up the TrackPad. This is an incredible feat of engineering
Schiller: Traditional moves like a diving board. Not this one. We call it the Force Touch trackpad.
The touchpad, or trackpad, as Apple calls it -- is finally making a shift I've called for for years. No more top hinge to physically click down.
Four sensors. First time trackpad, have Taptic Engine to provide feedback of clicking. Incredibly thin, capable TrackPad
Apple shares still just up a touch over 1 percent. New MacBook not enough to impress.
So, Taptic makes its way into new MacBook trackpad along with force touch. I'd bet it's in fall iPhone, too.
So the whole thing clicks down a bit, but not too much, as the system is very slim.
Schiller: Those four sensors sense a range of pressure from lightest click to deeper press. Created new gesture for deeper pressues. We call it a force click.
I've always been a tapper, not a clicker.
Schiller: in OSX, when force click on word in browser, automatically get WIkipedia entry
Give a word a harder click, and it's a "force click" that provides contextual reactions.
So, Apple is building a new interaction language: force-clicks and taptic feedback will be on watches and laptops, to start.
Can automatically get pop up of map when force click on dates. Can create calendar entry by force clicking on date/time
Schiller: If youre' watching a movie in QuickTime or video, can press harder on fast forward. Deeper you press, the faster it will go
Schiller: Engineered like no TrackPad ever has before.
Schiller: What's on the inside is just as innovaitve as outside.
Schiller: Latest unibody architecture. Can mount devices and components directly to that structure.
Schiller: Our engineering team took on two big challenges with this. First device, with circular shape on right, that's fan support. Designed MacBook to remove all fans and vents. First fanless MacBook
Schiller: Densest logic board ever in a Mac. 67% smaller. This is insane
Now, "fanless" makes me nervous, because that might mean Intel Core M, which won't provide the same level of performance as Core i5 CPUs
Schiller: It's powered by an Intel Core M, 5th Gen, 14nm process. Speeds up to 1.3 GHz, with turbo on top of that
