Better late than never is how I’ll describe Apple’s latest MacBook offering that’s due to be launched worldwide come 10 April 2015. Touted as the ‘lightest and thinnest Mac ever’, it will come with all the bells and whistles we’ll all need to surf Facebook and shop online, but more importantly, it will also come in Gold.
Much like the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6Plus, it will come in colours Space Grey, Silver and Gold, with a grand total of 2 models available, a 256GB PCIe-based onboard flash storage* one that will cost SGD1788, while the 512GB PCIe-based onboard flash storage* will set you back by SGD2288. Most importantly it will come in Gold. Which, as far as I’m concerned, is the be-all and end-all as far as the MacBook is concerned.
Sure, Silver is nice, and Space Grey is almost black which also makes it rather cold, but no gene in my Asian body will ever say no to Gold. Yes, gold. Like what kryptonite does to Superman, I get all weak-willed and wallet-compliant when it comes to anything gold. In other words, I’ll be putting in my order come 10 April.
*Don’t know what it means exactly, and it doesn’t really matter, right?
