Pulling my 12-inch MacBook from my backpack makes me feel like a samurai drawing a katana from its sheath.
The 6-year-old MacBook was recently labeled “vintage” by Apple, but its distinctive, sharp design still trumps the latest trend towards square shapes. As an older product, the 12-inch MacBook may no longer be repairable, subject to parts availability. But while this laptop has its flaws, it’s still a fantastic machine.
Apple officially discontinued the 12-inch MacBook in 2019, and some users celebrated its demise. Haters hated it for its shallow keyboard and sluggish processor.
