The MacBook "Core m3" 1.2 12-Inch (Mid-2017) features a 14-nm 1.2 GHz Intel "Core m3" Kaby Lake processor (M3-7Y32) with two independent processor "cores" on a single chip, a 4 MB level 3 cache, an "integrated" Intel HD Graphics 615 graphics processor that shares system memory, 8 GB of onboard 1866 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM, and 256 GB of onboard flash storage.
This all is housed in a wafer thin (0.14-0.52 inch), 2.03 pound, aluminum case offered in Gold color. It has a low-resolution 480p FaceTime webcam, a backlit full-size keyboard with a thin "butterfly mechanism" keyboard design, a "Force Touch" trackpad, and a beautiful 12" TFT LED-backlit active-matrix "Retina" display (2304x1440 native resolution at 226 ppi). It delivers 10-12 hours of battery life depending on use.
Compared to its predecessor, it is quite similar, but has a more advanced processor and graphics processor, faster storage, the option of twice as much RAM, reportedly better battery life, and a refined keyboard.
