Apple today announced the latest addition to its MacBook lineup, the 12-inch Retina MacBook, and many members of the press were able to go hands-on with the new machine after the event. We’ve collected some of the best videos below to give you a better look at the new machine.

The overall consensus among those who have tried the MacBook seems to be that while it’s not the most powerful computer on the market, its size makes it an impressive feat of engineering. The new Force Touch Trackpad gained praise, and the redesigned keyboard is said to be impressive.

However, due to its size, slower processor, and lack of ports, the MacBook may not be the perfect choice for every Apple customer. You can see all of the hands-on videos below:
