Apple today released their new MacBooks, with the latest Intel processors, improved graphics, faster flash storage and an additional hour of battery life.

The new 12-inch notebooks are available in four different aluminum finishes, including gold, silver, space gray and — for the first time ever — rose gold.

On the graphics front, the updated MacBook features sixth-generation dual-core Intel Core M processors up to 1.3 GHz, with Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.1 GHz, and faster 1866 MHz memory. New Intel HD Graphics 515 chips meanwhile offer up to 25 percent faster graphics performance.

The improved MacBook is available for purchase today on, and will arrive in brick-and-mortar Apple Stores tomorrow. Prices start at $1,299.

In another change today, Apple made 8GB of memory standard across all configurations of its 13-inch MacBook Air line.
