Apple to release an even more anorexic MacBook

by on02 September 2020

With an A14X processor

The dark satanic rumour mill has manufactured a hell on earth yarn claiming that Apple has designed a 12-inch MacBook that weighs less than one kilogram (2.2 pounds).

According to the China Times, Apple intends to launch it by the end of the year and it will be its first ARM-based Mac. It will have Apple's much hyped A14X processor, which is codenamed "Tonga" and manufactured by TSMC. 

It appears to resolve Apple's bad luck with batteries and have a battery life of between 15 and 20 hours -- longer if you use the plug it in feature which Apple invented.

The MacBook with a 12-inch Retina Display at the end of this year, using its self-developed and designed A14X processor, with the development code of Tonga, supporting a USB Type-C interface and weighing less than one kilogram, because of the low-power advantage of the ARM-based processor.

The source of the rumour is Apple's "supply chain" which apparently still leaks like a sieve, despite Jobs' Mob's efforts. While the device might be thin, we are not sure how fast it will be compared to Apple's Intel based offerings.
