If you’ve been hankering for an early unboxing video of Apple’s new 12-inch MacBook, you’ve got it.
It’s in Vietnamese.
Still, it’s an unboxing video, a bit early and it shows the new 29-watt power brick, 2-meter charging cable and brand new USB Type C connectors.
The company appears to have eschewed the longer power cord that it includes with its other notebook, though the power brick does feature interchangeable plugs. Also gone are the flip-up winding posts that have long adorned Apple’s power bricks.
The charging cord itself appears somewhat thicker and stiffer than those attached to Apple’s MagSafe connectors. The UCB type C plugs look like larger versions of the Ligtning plugs, with extruded ovular casings.
Apple is expected to open sales of the new MacBook on April 10th. The 12-inch MacBook is available in silver, gold, or space gray and starts at US$1,299.
