Apple MacBook "Core M" 1.2 12" 2015 Specs

MacBook - MF865LL/A - MacBook8,1 - A1534

About This Mac

 

This version of the MacBook has been fully redesigned.  In 2015 Apple’s focus was to create a powerful internal capacity, but using lighter and thinner models.  Another change that was made for this model is that the connectivity options for external devices were reduced to 2-USB-C ports including a headphone jack.  The MacBook 12 Inch computer with a 1.2 GHz Intel Core M processor (M-5Y51) continues to remain a customer favorite to this day. Further specifications and capabilities for this device can be found below.

Storage

 

The storage includes a 512 GB of PCIe-based flash storage soldered to the mother board (unable to be upgraded).  The storage speed of the hard drive is estimated between 451.7 – 738.2 MB per second.

Screen Size and Resolution

 

This MacBook came with a 12-inch screen that incorporates an upgraded resolution of 2304×1440 and a new TFT LED-Backlit active-matrix “Retina” display.  This allows for millions of colors to be displayed clearly because the pixel density is 226 pixels per inch.  This higher pixel density ensures that individual pixels are not easily detectable at a normal viewing distance.  This device utilizes IPS technology with the ability to support other resolutions such as: 1440×900, 1280×800 and 1024×640.

Inclusive Features

 

The MacBook includes the following features and ports:

 

  • Standard AirPort (802.11ac)
  • Bluetooth 4.0 that provides optimal low energy usage for quick PAN (Personal Area Network) connections and transfers and is also backwards compatible with lower Bluetooth devices
  • 1 USB-C port for connectivity
  • 480p FaceTime Webcam
  • Optical digital audio in/out for connecting some external audio equipment like headphones and microphones
  • By attaching VGA or HDMI adapters to the single USB-C port you can assess 2nd display support resolution properties of up to 3840×2160
  • Force Touch TrackPad which lets you Force Click by pressing on the trackpad and then applying more pressure

Processor & Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

 

The pre-installed operating system on this device was MacOS X 10.10.2 (14C2061). Apple also made a return to Intel for the provision of a graphics processor with the Intel Integrated HD Graphics 5300 graphics processor replacing the NVIDIA GeForce that was used in the last 2010 model. This processor shared the memory of the onboard 8 GB 1600 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM.

Memory & Architecture

 

This device was powered with a 4 MB Level 3 cache and 8 GB of onboard 1600 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM (cannot be upgraded).  This is centered around a 64-Bit architecture.

Battery Life

 

As a result of Apple’s innovative new-terraced design packing of battery cells this device includes 39.7 -watt-hour lithium polymer battery that guarantees 10 hours of battery life.
