2016 12" Macbook VS 2015 12" Macbook - Speed Test & Comparison

April 22, 2016

12" Macbook 2015 VS 12" Macbook 2016

The new 2016 12" Retina Macbook is here. How well does it hold up? A £350 difference between these two machines. You can pick up the last generation from the Apple refurbished store for £750 VS the new 2016 model for £1049. See the above comparison video which will highlight the differences in speed - various speed test comparisons have been undertaken (bootup, blackmagic, imovie exporting, pixelmator). 

In a nutshell: the 2016 model isn't worth the price tag of £1049. The £750, previous gen model is now fairly priced and offers similar speeds. Obviously if your going to be intense stuff the newer machines will offer a slight* advantage - but then again, shouldn't you be looking a Macbook Pro (for cheaper and superior performance?).

Size Chart

Please choose the following product by clicking on the appropriate tab below to navigate your way around the sizing charts for each respective product. In principal, we recommend you purchase the same size you would normally buy as we have a relaxed fit style to allow for items to be added in the pockets. However, if you are looking to fill every single pocket then we would recommend getting the next size up. Do not worry about sizing, we have a relaxed returns policy. You can easily send it back for an exchange, credit note or refund (this has never happened but hey!). Some customers tend to order two sizes and simply return the unwanted size for a refund - this is perfectly fine to do so.
