// Wow, New Macintosh portable computers by Apple Inc. are here. All engineered to standards that don’t even exist yet. The design is still clean and superb (its not a surprise, all Apple products have a nice design). But this time Apple hit big by updating an entire line of laptops at one go (Macbook, Macbook Pro and the Macbook Air).
According to Apple, these new machines were designed from scratch, this time the Apple team devised a way to replace many parts with just one. That one part is knows as unibody(“a seamless enclosure carved from a single piece of aluminum”). They also claimed that their machines are more stronger.
Now, no more mouse buttons on the Macbooks, Apple has designed a trackpad which has a built-in support for multi-touch gestures. Maybe this design will be implemented by other manufacturers.
Here’s the way multi-touch has been set out to work on the new MacBooks:
- Two-finger gesture: Pinch and rotate for zooming and panning
- Three-finger gesture: Swiping between photos
- Four-finger gesture: Expose and app switching
