Apple MacBook (2015): Australian Price And Release Date

Apple MacBook (2015): Australian Price And Release Date

Feel like picking up Apple’s new, ultra-skinny MacBook for yourself? Here’s what you’ll pay for it Down Under, and when you can get one.

The new MacBook (not Air, just MacBook), is packing a 1.1GHz Intel Core M processor, 256GB of storage and 8GB of RAM.

You can shell out extra for new MacBook with a faster Core M processor and more storage if that base model doesn’t suit you. The premium model will get you a 1.2GHz Intel Core M processor, 8GB of RAM, 512GB of storage and Intel HD 3500 integrated graphics.

They’re both fanless, and packed to the gills with batteries, giving you an “all-day battery”, and feature Apple’s new USB Type-C connector. You’re practically portless on this thing.

It also comes in three colours. The same ones as the iPhone: space grey, silver and goooooooold.

So what can you expect to pay? Well, because Australia is getting absolutely slammed on the currency markets right now, you can expect to shell out phat ca$h.

The 1.1GHz/256GB model is the base, and will cost you $1799 at launch. The faster, higher capacity model with its 1.2GHz processor and 512GB of storage will cost you $2199.

There’s little to no Australia Tax present here, we’re just a victim to our crappy dollar against the Greenback once again.

You’ll be able to pick it up from 10 April.
