Understanding the MacBook Models

MacBook is the family name for Apple’s laptop computers. As of this writing, the MacBook family includes the MacBook Pro, the MacBook Air, and the MacBook usually called simply “MacBook” but also known as “12-inch MacBook” to distinguish it from the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro.

Each MacBook has similar core features, such as the display for viewing information and the keyboard and trackpad for entering data and controlling the computer. Beyond that, the MacBook models differ in various ways, from design, size, and weight to screen size, memory and storage capacity, and processor type and speed.
