MacBook 2016: Here Is What The Highest Configured Notebook Will Cost You
The 2016 12-inch MacBook did feature some new color models, but there were not a whole log changes present between this notebook and its predecessor. In fact, most of the changes that you see are present on the inside.

According to the latest configuration settings present on Apple’s MacBook website, the highest configured model is going to cost you $1,749.

- Native DisplayPort 1.2 video output
- VGA output using USB-C VGA Multiport Adapter (sold separately)
- HDMI video output using USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter (sold separately)
The 8GB of RAM will be running at DDR3 speeds, but Apple has made sure that the default clock speed starts from 1866MHz and the storage models will start from 256GB of PCIe flash storage and go all the way up to 512GB.
