The 12-inch Macbook with Retina Display

Meet Apple's new fanless MacBook. This device packs a 12-inch Retina display, a redesigned trackpad and a brand new keyboard design. It'll be available for $1,299 when it ships on April 10.

UK and Australian prices are yet to be announced, but $1,299 converts to roughly £860 or AU$1,685.

The new MacBook is Apple's thinnest yet. It's 13.1mm thick, 24 percent thinner than the 11-inch MacBook Air.

The new MacBook's keyboard uses what Apple is calling a "butterfly mechanism" for its keys. The mechanism is thinner but reportedly more stable, which allows for shallow keys that remain accurate.

The new trackpad doesn't click: instead, four sensors detect a range of pressure to interpret what it is you're trying to do.

Much of the design is thanks to the efficiency of Intel's Core M processor, Apple claimed.

USB-C is the other piece of the puzzle. USB-C is really one cable to rule them all: the cables are reversible, and support all manner of communication and display technologies. It's also the only port on the new MacBook: you'll find a headphone jack on the opposite side.

Here's the USB-C cable. This means no more MagSafe adapters, but the cables are universal, so you'll be able to use them on any of your devices.

Smaller components and the lack of any sort of fan leaves plenty of room inside the chassis -- for batteries. Apple's using a new battery design to cram as much juice as possible into the machine, so you can expect 9 to 10 hours of battery life.

The 12-inch MacBook starts at $1,299 in the US, £1,049 in the UK, and AU$1,799 in Australia.

You'll pay a bit more for a slightly faster CPU and more hard drive space -- a 1.2GHz model with a 512GB SSD will set you back $1,599 -- that's £1,299 and AU$2,199.

 The new MacBook will start shipping on April 10.
