Apple media event

On 3/9 Apple is hosting a media event at the Yerba Buena center for the arts in San Francisco, California, USA. Update: Apple introduced the new MacBook, an 12" notebook with 2304*1440 retina display, 8GB RAM, 256 or 512GB SSD, Intel Core M CPU without fan (silent!), 480p FaceTime camera, 3.5mm audio port and a sole USB Type-C port for charging power, data (USB 3.1 Gen 1 up to 5 Gbps) and video (native DisplayPort 1.2 video output). There are no adapters for various legacy ports included. Apple is selling adapters for USB Type-A (20$) and USB Type-A and C plus HDMI or VGA (79$) for ridiculous prices, but you will soon be able to buy various docks and adapters for much less from third party suppliers, as USB Type-C is an industry standard, that is also used by the new Google Chromebook. Availability starts 4/10 for 1500 and 1800€. Update 2: Apple states, that the new MacBook supports 4k video output at 3840*2160, although no information is given through which interfaces and at how many hertz.
