The new MacBook it only has one port, the brand new USB Type-C. It was fully thought out and created to be compatible with a wireless world.
The new MacBook was created to integrate seamlessly into an increasingly wireless world. Almost everything you do on a notebook can now be done over the air, thanks to Apple software that takes full advantage of the latest WiFi and Bluetooth technologies. So you connect to the internet, transfer files, organize your photos, listen to music and more wherever you are, without being tied to wires.
All this thanks to technologies such as iCloud (your photos, music and files in the cloud), AirDrop (sharing in a simple and easy way), AirPlay (your photos and videos on TV; music in compatible speakers), Personal Access (enjoy the internet from your iPhone or iPad Wi-Fi + Cellular in a simple way), AirPrint (wireless printing), Time Machine (automatic wireless backup), among other things.
Despite having only one door, we can say that it is very versatile.
To create a notebook as thin and light as the new MacBook, we strive for efficiency in every detail, starting with the way it connects to peripherals and power. That's why we help create a new standard of universal connectivity, combining the essential functions you use every day in just one entry. The USB-C port allows you to charge your MacBook, transfer data quickly with USB 3.0, connect with external and peripheral devices, in addition to serving as a video output compatible with HDMI, VGA and Mini DisplayPort connections.
