Want to buy Apple's newest laptop, the 12 ″ MacBook Retina? Be careful, because apart from the fantastic screen, performance absolutely does not make a miracle cry, rather.

According to the first tests, the power is certainly not the strong point of the new Apple 12 ″ MacBook Retina.

According to reports from Apple Insider, in some tests carried out through the Geekbench application of Primate Labs, the basic model of Apple's new 12-inch MacBook with Retina display, identified with the acronym MacBook 8.1, would have obtained a score of 1,924 in single -core and 4,038 in multi-core. Taken individually these numbers mean little, but if we compare them to other Apple products we have a bad surprise.

In fact, making a performance comparison, these results would be comparable to those obtained with a 2011 11-inch MacBook Air equipped with a 1.80 GHz Intel Core i7 processor. The MacBook with 12-inch Retina display integrates a 1.1 GHz Intel Core M processor that only requires 5 watts of energy.If we consider that the 12 ″ MacBook Retina released in 2015, therefore, we cannot be absolutely satisfied with these performances, definitely below tone for a laptop that costs a lot.

It is also true that we are talking about a product that it was not born to be a monster of power: its strong point is the design, together with the extremely low weight and the very high resolution screen. Performance, however, must never go into the background and I think it is not possible to accept that a product released in 2015 offers the same performance as one released in 2011.

However, it should be remembered that although the benchmarks may be similar, however, we are talking about technologies that are years away and therefore SSDs, memories, internal components and more influence the real performance in an important way and the new Macbook will most likely be faster than the Macbook Air 2011 in real use. For the time being, however, performance testing has given this response. We'll see if things change when the first 12 ″ MacBook Retina models hit the market.

We remember that the new MacBook with 12-inch Retina display will go on sale starting next April 10th.
