LaCie brings USB-C to Porsche drive with MacBook in mind

If you’re planning to snap up one of those sleek new MacBooks, you’ve got accessories on the shopping list too, we hope. The good news is, you might not even have to leave the Apple Store for everything you need. With the new MacBook, Apple also unveiled a series of dongles for owners to attach things to.

This week the folks at Apple have revealed the new MacBook, a notebook with just 2 ports. One is for your headphones - a standard headphone jack that also allows mic-in.

With a newly thinned-out body, trackpad, keyboard, and parred-down collection of ports, the New MacBook is truly simplified. This device is not a MacBook Air - and it's certainly not a MacBook Pro.

This is a new trackpad in the new MacBook, made to be what Apple's Phil Schiller suggests is an "incredible feat of engineering." Four individual force sensors exist under the pad, with a glass surface up top. Instead of "clicking," you'll be doing a sort of "push" more akin to what you do on a touchscreen - but don't call it a tap.
