Apple finally rolled out its much anticipated, amazingly thin and light laptop with the very minimalistic "MacBook" name.

The iPad maker decided to leave the name back to the basics, instead of dubbing it as the MacBook Slim or the new MacBook Air. Apple stayed true to its simplistic detail to its wide range of tech products.

At an eyebrow-raising $1,299, the new MacBook makes the price worthwhile for the Apple user. Fans are praising its unbelievably thin size at just bit over 13 mm.

Apple's new laptop is also very light with its two-pound weight. Additionally, the Cupertino-based tech giant increased the trackpad size and moved the placement of the speakers, according to The Verge.

The promotional video from Apple shows that they needed to overhaul the batteries, screen, trackpad and the keyboard for the new MacBook, which comes in several colors such as space gray, gold and silver.

The MacBook's 12-inch screen features a 2304 x 1440 Retina display with 236 ppi for clearer and more vivid video and photo viewing. Apple also claims that it consumes 30 percent less power compared to the older models.

Apple introduced the new "Force Touch" feature on its trackpad, which give a tactile feedback for the user whenever it is used.

The new MacBook's battery is also quite impressive with a life of up to 9 hours on web browsing, according to Mashable.

One new addition is the USB-C port that replaces the traditional ports from its predecessors, except for the headphone jack.

USB-C standard allows the new MacBook to reach data speeds of up to 5Gbps and also allows for DisplayPort 1.2 output for video display. Charging smaller devices from the MacBook is also possible thanks to the new port.

Apple said that the move to shift to USB-C is part of their wireless integrated ecosystem with iPhones that can synchronize wirelessly using AirDrop. Several cameras are now supporting Wi-Fi connectivity for a more convenient photography experience.

Under the hood, a 1.1GHz Intel Core M processor powers the device with Turbo Boost technology that allows for doubling the clock rate.
