Apple MacBook "Core M7" 1.3 12" 2016 Specs

MacBook - BTO/CTO - MacBook9,1 - A1534

About This Mac

This device is a BTO/CTO device which is nearly identical to MLHA2LL/A and MLHC2LL/A. We have listed this device separately as it has been configured with an upgraded processor when compared to the base models. This has been done to make it easier to catalog as well as easier to read.

This was the first MacBook to be released in 2016.  It comes with a 1.3 GHz Intel Core m7 Skylake processor (M7-6Y75) and a 12- inch screen. The aluminum casing also comes in more colors then was previously available such as space grey, gold, and a rose gold finish. For this device there was an improvement in the battery life from previous MacBooks. The graphics processor is also upgraded to the Intel HD Graphics 515.  Further device specifications and capabilities can be found below.

Storage

This device includes 256/512 GB of PCIe-based flash storage soldered to the motherboard (cannot be upgraded). The storage speed of the hard drive is estimated between 845/947 MB per second.

    Screen Size and Resolution

    This MacBook came with a 12-inch screen that runs at 2304 x 1440 and incorporates the new TFT LED-Backlit active-matrix “Retina” display.  This allows for millions of colors to be displayed clearly as the pixel density is 226 pixels per inch.  This ensures that individual pixels are not easily detectable at a normal viewing distance. With IPS technology this device also supports other resolutions such as 1440 x 900, 1280 x 800, and 1024 x 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 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 3840×2140 at 30Hz

      • Full size back-lit keyboard

      • Force Touch Track Pad which lets you Force Click by pressing on the track pad and then applying more pressure

        Processor & Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

        The pre-installed operating system on this device was MacOS X 10.11.4 (15E2066). Apple also made a return to Intel for the provision of a graphics processor with the Intel Integrated HD Graphics 515 graphics processor replacing the HD Graphics 5300 used in the early 2015 model. This processor shares the memory of the onboard 8 GB 1866 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM.

        Memory & Architecture

        The device features a 4 MB Level 3 cache and an upgraded onboard RAM to an 8 GB 1866 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM from the 8 GB 1600 MHz LPDDR3 SDRAM that accompanied the early 2015 version (unable to upgrade). This is centered around a 64-Bit architecture.

        Battery Life

        The device comes with a 41.4 W h Li-Poly battery that can provide up to 10 hours of “wireless web” use, 11 hours of “iTunes movie playback” and “30 days” of standby time. A 29W USB-C power adapter also accompanies this device.
