This morning we got a quick little update from Apple. The 12-inch MacBook just got a performance upgrade with the latest Intel chips and a faster SSD module.

Using the new Intel Core M processors up to 1.3GHz, the MacBook gains an extra hour of battery life, now reaching 10 hours. The new on-board GPU is also helping to gain a 25% speed increase in graphical performance. The SSD module is also faster, probably reaching the 800MB/s of its bigger siblings.
