Apple’s Spring Forward event in San Francisco, California is over and we’ve rounded up the two biggest news that the Cupertino-based giant announced:

Apple 12-inch MacBook

Apple reinvented the MacBook and made it thinner and lighter than the already-thin MacBook Air. It’s a whole new level of not-there-ness: the new 12-inch MacBook weight just two pounds and measures only 13.1mm at its thickest point.

It boasts of a 12-inch Retina display, an all-new re-engineered keyboard, an all-new Force Touch trackpad, a USB-C port, and up to 10 hours of battery life.

Powering this wispy MacBook is a speedy Intel Core M processor that allows the notebook to be completely fanless and silent. It comes in multiple finishes: silver, space gray, and gold.

Apple Watch

Announced last September, the new Apple Watch finally has a launch date and a price. The first Apple wearable will arrive on April 24, starting at $349.

The Apple Watch serves as a fitness tracker, communication tool, and a highly accurate timepiece, among others. It is powered by a custom S1 processor and features a flexible Retina display.

It comes in three models: original, with a case made from a custom stainless steel alloy; Sport, made from a custom, anodized aluminum alloy; and Edition, with an 18-karat gold case and a totally novel interface based around a Digital Crown. Different bands allow each watch to go from sporty to formal.
