Retina MacBook Compared to MacBook Air in New Ukrainian Video

Ukrainian website Rozetka has compared the new 12-inch Retina MacBook to the 11-inch mid-2013 MacBook Air in a new video, providing a closer look at the physical design of the new MacBook and offering a side-by-side view of the different features between the notebooks. The video also highlights how the new MacBook, which measures 0.51" at its thickest point, is nearly as thin as the original iPad (0.50").


The video provides an in-depth look at the new MacBook's ultra-thin design, Retina display, redesigned keyboard, Force Touch trackpad, unlit Apple logo and more, interspersed with stock video footage and screenshots of the notebook from Apple. The fifteen-minute clip complements Vietnamese website Tinhte's unboxing photos and video of the new MacBook that surfaced last week.

Apple's 12-inch Retina MacBook will be available to purchase in silver, space gray and gold on April 10, the same day that Apple Watch pre-orders begin in the United States, Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan and United Kingdom. The notebook starts at $1,299 for the base 256GB configuration, while a 512GB model with a slightly faster processor is available for $1,599.

It's actually in Russian.

Ukraine has both Russian and Ukrainian as its official languages.

I popped by at the Rozetka site and it's all in Russian, not Ukrainian (I'm a speaker of both languages).

EDIT: Looks like MR cleaned up the article and no longer says that the video is spoken in Ukrainian.

EDIT 2: Credits to someone else for pointing out an error I made, Ukrainian is the sole official language of the country. Russian, or any other minority language, has the status of a regional language in areas of Ukraine where the percentage of representatives of national minorities exceeds 10% of the total population of a defined administrative district, whereby it can be used in courts, schools and other government institutions.


She can speak any language she wants... she's hot.. lol :D

She's speaking Russian, not Ukranian. And to sum it up, it's a crap upgrade. It's as fast as an Air from 2011, but with a lot less functionality. The better choice is the Macbook Pro Retina 13 inch model.

Didn't understand a word. Didn't need to. I was completely sold that I should fly to Ukraine to buy my next Mac. ;)
