Google on Wednesday unveiled a brand new laptop of its own, an amazing piece of machinery that still isn’t necessarily a must-have for laptop buyers despite its allure.

The 12-inch MacBook is Apple’s slickest laptop yet, a device that offers a bunch of features and technologies that haven’t ever been used in other MacBooks. But can it be used for actual work?

Apple may not have announced the long-desired Retina MacBook Air during Monday’s media event, but it arguably did one better when it introduced a brand new 12-inch MacBook with Retina Display. The new MacBook is impossibly thin and incredibly light, measuring in at just 2 pounds.

The 12-inch MacBook Apple unveiled during its Spring Forward event on Monday is by far one of the most interesting laptops Apple made so far, considering all the new technologies the company developed in order to create such a complex device.

I’m no medium, but I’m pretty sure that ghosts have better things to do than haunt decade-old laptops. But it doesn’t matter what I think — according to eBay seller wfatzinger, his white, 2007 MacBook is haunted.
