Apple refreshes the MacBook and MacBook Air laptops

Without much fanfare, Apple today released a small hardware refresh of its MacBook 12" and MacBook Air notebooks.

The refreshed MacBook now sports sixth-generation Intel Core M, which can be configured with either 1.1GHz or 1.3GHz clock speed. The RAM is also upgraded from 1600MHz to the faster 1866MHz and the Intel HD 515 GPU promises 25% better efficiency. And, yes, there's a new rose gold color available to mark the slight bump in specs.

Thanks to the latest components, the battery life has been increased to 10 hours web browsing and 11 hours of continuous video playback. Prices start from $1,299 for the 1.1GHz model (8GB of RAM, 256GB of storage).

The only change the MacBook Air saw today was a bump in base RAM capacity. From now on, the 13" Air will come with 8GB as standard whereas the 11-incher will remain to have 4GB as standard.
