The 12-inch MacBook is being studied in depth.

And it is cool.

Perhaps one of the most striking features about the new machine is that the new logic board is actually smaller than the Raspberry Pi.

The cool cats at Digital Trends ran a comparison and noted that the logic board is 4.6 inches wide and 1.5 inches deep, rounding to the nearest tenth, and not counting a tiny sliver of circuit board that protrudes on one side.

Meanwhile, the Raspberry Pi measures about 3.4 inches by 2.2 inches (rounding to the nearest tenth). That works out to 7.48 square inches, a full quarter of a square inch larger than the MacBook’s logic board. The Pi is also about eight-tenths of an inch thick, which works out to around 20 millimeters, seven more than the 13.1 millimeter MacBook.

Obviously, the logic board of the MacBook and the Raspberry Pi are not comparable from a marketing standpoint, and are meant to fill different roles, but it’s impressive that Apple has managed to fit so much in so little space.
