The teardown you’ve been waiting for has been completed.

And it shows off some really nifty stuff.

The coolest of cats at iFixit have published a teardown of the new 12-inch MacBook. The feature shows just how tiny the notebook’s logic board is, coming in at 67 percent smaller than that of the MacBook Air. The piece also shows a new terraced battery design for the MacBook, allowing more batteries to be efficiently fit into a small space.

Finally, the new MacBook also features the same Force Touch technology seen on the 2015 Retina MacBook Pro. The Force Touch trackpad doesn’t actually push in like a normal trackpad, but rather provides haptic feedback to provide the same feeling as a normal trackpad.


Even if you aren’t planning on snagging the new 12-inch MacBook, there’s a lot of interesting new changes in the way the hardware’s layered and designed and it’s an interesting piece. Take a gander, let us know what you think and we can’t wait to hear from you.
