You might think I’m nuts, but the 12-inch MacBook is my favorite MacBook. It’s the model I’m typing this on. It’s as portable as they come. Its keyboard sits refreshingly close to the surface. And today, you can enjoy some of that action yourself with the 512GB 12-inch MacBook that’s on sale for just $999.99Remove non-product link (down from $1,399.99) on Woot.
I’m tempted to get another one myself. This particular model comes with an Intel Core i5 dual-core 1.3GHz chip, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and that roomy 512GB SSD. Provided you’re not planning on using it for graphically intensive games or heavy video rendering, it’ll generally serve you just fine.
Nor is it exactly weak. You’re not playing with the processing power of the bigger models, of course, but I use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom on this model fairly frequently with few if any hiccups. I can even play World of Warcraft, so long as the settings are cranked way down.
One port to rule them all
And just one final thing: Yes, Woot is a trustworthy source. We don’t feature them often, but Woot is owned by Amazon and most of the products on there are covered by Amazon’s same return policy.
