5 Janus-faced Facts about New MacBook Apple

Youâve already read plenty of reviews on a new Appleâs masterpiece, a MacBook. Youâve already known itâs thin, lightweight, efficient and boasts a neat design. Youâve even already learned about devices new and only multipurpose USB hub Type-C, and also youâve probably already written tons of comments on the issue. However, there are 5 peculiar facts about new MacBook that might be bewildering for some of us and even infuriating for others, as a couple of deviceâs most eye-catching features of the past are gone forever.

MagSafe is no longer with us

MagSafe is a special charger hub, which was attached to the device with the help of a magnet. If you accidentally brushed against the cable of the charger, it wouldâve drifted off the MacBook, so it could stay intact. And now, since the charging takes place via the new USB Type-C hub if you brush against the cable, the device will most likely fall down on the ground. And crack, or deform, or whatever.

FaceTime camera now has a lower resolution

The latest editions of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro feature a 720p front camera that was quite impressive. In its turn, new MacBook has a 480p front camera which is equal to the one stocked in iPhone 4. As a result, quality of FaceTime and Skype experience will be lower. Innovation? Doubtfully.

Loudspeakers just got better

Located in front of the user, MacBookâs spears are noted to sound better and louder than in MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, as described by Mashable reviewers not so long ago. In the recent models, the aperture for loudspeaker was located in the place a keyboard is attached to the screen. In its turn, the new model boasts loudspeakers aimed exactly at the user.

Buying new MacBook, youâll need to additionally purchase a new hub

USB Type-C hub is a cool thing and computer geekâs worst nightmare all at the same time. Important thing first, the hub has become that universal connector to plug in anything. On the flip side, thereâs just one single hub to cater for all your stuff you planned to connect to the new device. For example, if youâre charging the MacBook, no mouse controller or HDMI is allowed.

Great news, Apple âfixedâ the problem by releasing a âmultihubâ USB Type-C connector, but youâll need to spend another $79 to land it. Innovation? Nope, simple âbeating-out-extra-cash-out-of-fansâ-pocketsâ.

Glowing Appleâs logo at the back of the MacBook is history

One of Appleâs show-stopping features, a glowing logo on the back of their laptops, is now replaced in favor of a common metal cover. They explain itâs caused by the device being too thin, but we all know itâs a lame excuse for not being persistent enough to keep MacBookâs key eye-candy in place. And since the phrase âbodyâs too thinâ sounds persuasive in marketerâs mind, the fans will have to settle down for âplaying colors in the lightâ. Sad.
