Consumers many reasons for buying the products they purchase. When we talk to our customers who are interested in buying a new Apple laptop, for many it comes down to cost and portability. From the smallest 11-inch MacBook Air to the largest 17-inch MacBook Pro, there is an Apple laptop for everyone.

Aside from cost most consumers in the market for a laptop look for portability; how light the laptop is, or how small.  For students, business men and women, and anyone else who wants to do work away from their desk, they need something more powerful than a mobile device but with the same convenience as an iPad or iPhone.

There are three Apple laptop options: the MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro. Notoriously in the past, MacBook Airs have had the reputation of being the most portable laptop that Apple has available to purchase. However, recently the newest MacBook that was released by Apple is now setting a new standard.

The newest MacBook is now the thinnest and lightest laptop Apple offers. With only one port, a headphone jack, and a built-in 41.4-watt-hour lithium polymer battery, it is only 0.14 to 0.52 inches thin.

The picture below is the comparison between the MacBook, 11-inch MacBook Air, and the 13-inch MacBook Air that are the three smallest laptops Apple has available.


The MacBook comes in an arrangement of colors such as Rose Gold, Space Gray, Gold, and Silver. In comparison, all MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros come in Silver. Also, when comparing the MacBook to the MacBook Air the MacBook weighs in around 2.03 pounds while the 11-inch MacBook Air weighs 2.38 pounds. Although the MacBook is 12-inches diagonal, it is only longer than the 11-inch MacBook Air by 0.4 of an inch.

The battery life has also improved with the updated MacBook. Instead of a MagSafe power port, and 9 hours wireless web battery life with the 11-inch MacBook Air, the new MacBook holds up to 10 hours wireless web life and is powered by a USB-C power port. The MacBook Air also has more ports making the model width a little thicker than the MacBook.

If you are on the hunt for a new Apple laptop and portability is the biggest factor in your decision, then the MacBook is the laptop for you.  The MacBook only has one port for fewer wires and is the lightest and thinnest Apple laptop.  To see if Mac of all trades has a refurbished MacBook available follow this link and see the inventory that is online now.
