- Beautiful, high-resolution “Retina” display.
- Incredibly sleek, lightweight aluminum case.
- Attractive color options — silver, gold, and dark gray for the “Early 2015” line. The “Early 2016” and “Mid-2017” models originally also included a pink-tinted “Rose Gold” option, as well.

- Solid battery life for all models.
- Clever, versatile “Force Touch” trackpad.
- Quiet, fanless operation.
- USB-C port is smaller and easier-to-use than earlier USB standards.
