Apple refreshes MacBooks with Skylake processors; adds Rose Gold option

Have you been praying for a pink Rose Gold MacBook to match your iPhone 6s? You're in luck. Apple has quietly upgraded its line of MacBooks, adding a Rose Gold color option.

The firm's line of ultra-portable PCs also gets the Skylake treatment, having been upgraded to the latest Intel processors. Gone are the days of the older Core M; enter the days of the Core m3, m5, and m7.

The two standard models offer a Core m3 or a Core m5 for the price of $1,299 or $1,599, while offering an upgrade to a Core m7 at the time of purchase on either model.

The new PCs also contain new Intel HD Graphics 515, promising 25% faster graphics. Other than that, not much is new. It still ships with 8 GB RAM, 256 or 512 GB SSD, and a single USB-C port.

New MacBooks aren't all that Apple announced today. The firm also noted that 8 GB of RAM will be the new standard on the 13" MacBook Air, but the 11-inch model continues to ship with 4 GB.

If you were hoping for an upgrade to either MacBook Pro, you're going to have to wait a bit longer, possibly until later this year when Apple holds its hardware events.

The new MacBooks and MacBook Airs should be available today, but at time of publishing, they're not yet available from the online store.
