Apple Unibody MacBook Pro Series
To develop something truly different, you have to work in a way that is truly different. The designers and engineers collaborate Apple at every stage of product development. This partnership enables innovation. And that’s exactly how the new MacBook Pro has been created. With its unibody innovative new features and its design-friendly environment, it marks a revolution in how notebooks are made.
Until now, all notebooks were designed in the same way: by assembling multiple pieces to create a single enclosure. But the integration of all parts needed increased dimensions, weight, complexity and risks of failure. Solving this problem required a more gradual change. It required a breakthrough. To create the new MacBook Pro, the design teams and engineering have devised a way to replace these multiple pieces by one. This unique piece is called the unibody. This is a case in one piece, cut from a single block of aluminum.
The development of a unique piece generates its own set of difficulties. With multiple components related to each other, it is not necessary to obtain a perfect tolerance. There may be loose, in every sense of the term. But when the same piece has a number of functions, it is essential that this piece is manufactured with absolute precision, to Micron. Every time. Millions of times.
There was only one way to achieve this level of precision: it had cut the unibody from a solid block of aluminum using CNC (Computer Numerical Control for CNC machines), the type used by the aerospace industry to make strategic components of spacecraft.
The thickness of a notebook depends on the technology that integrates: LCDs typically use cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) to create a light source and projecting an image on a screen. But that poses two problems. First, these lamps require more space, so the screen can not win with finesse.
Secondly, like the fluorescent lights in your home or office, those that fit a screen backlight CCFL take time to warm up before reaching their full luminosity. In sum, a lose-lose situation. That’s why Apple engineers chose the technology with LED backlight for the new MacBook.
But where’s the button? The amazing new trackpad also serves button: press anywhere and feel that you have clicked. The lack of a separate button allows you to identify 39 percent more space: much space to walk your fingers won on the glass surface to soft. Now that Multi-Touch manipulation can be performed on a MacBook, you have all the functions at your fingertips. Use two fingers to scroll a page vertically.
Pinch the screen to enlarge or reduce the elements. Swipe with three fingers to flip through your photo libraries and rotate an image with your fingertips. With the new handling of four-finger swipe, swipe vertically to switch between your open applications. If you come from a world ruled by right-clicking, you can even configure a right click area to access shortcut menus. The more you use the Multi-Touch trackpad, the more you’ll wonder how you ever did without it.
Simply wonderful. The screen LED-backlit MacBook does not shine only by its superb design seamless, a remarkable finesse. Open your MacBook and you are instantly greeted by a wonderful light from the screen. The aluminum enclosure is perfectly integrated into the glass screen, so that the image of perfect clarity, appears larger and more striking than ever. Everything you look, including the glossy widescreen display itself, proves spectacular. The backlit LED operates more energy, which translates to greater autonomy. And since it contains no mercury or arsenic, it is greener than ever.11
