The Future of Computing: Introducing the MacBook Go

All Keyboard, All Power

The MacBook Go redefines portability in computing by ditching the screen and embracing its identity as a keyboard-centric device. With an integrated DLP projector, this all-in-one keyboard is your office on the go. Just set it up against a wall, pair it with a Magic Mouse, and your workstation is ready wherever you are. Running on Apple’s silicon, the MacBook Go is a testament to the power and potential of compact computing.

A New Computing Format

Designed by Pablo Rubio, the MacBook Go is not just a gadget but a bold step towards a new computing format. It combines a keyboard with a projector, eliminating the need for a screen and allowing you to project a high-resolution, 120Hz display on any surface. This innovation offers a level of convenience and screen real estate that traditional multi-monitor setups can’t match.

Classic MacBook Feel with a Twist

At first glance, the MacBook Go might look like a regular MacBook minus the screen. It features the familiar 65% keyboard layout, complete with function keys and TouchID. But don’t let its appearance fool you; this device houses a robust Mac computer and a smart projector that auto-adjusts for an effortless setup. The only thing seemingly missing is a kickstand for height adjustment—but that’s a minor quibble.

Connectivity and Sound Quality Uncompromised

The MacBook Go’s design allows for a generous selection of ports and enhanced sound with larger speaker drivers. Offering HDMI and DisplayPort for video, alongside USB-A and USB-C ports, a Micro-SD card slot, and even a 10-Gig Ethernet port, this concept device doesn’t skimp on connectivity. Plus, the inclusion of a 3.5mm headphone jack caters to both traditional users and professionals who demand high-quality audio connections.

What This Means for Traditional Workstations

The MacBook Go challenges the notion of a traditional workstation, especially in design and other fields where the transition from bulky desktops to sleek laptops is already happening. While some may see it as a successor to the MacBook, the MacBook Go stands out as a unique solution, trading a fixed display for unmatched portability. It offers a vast projected screen, a boon for professionals who are always on the move.

Not the First, But Perhaps the Most Innovative

The concept of integrating a computer into a keyboard isn’t new—Pentaform’s Abacus Basic keyboard housed a full Windows 10 PC. However, the MacBook Go elevates this idea with its projector lens, an element missing from Pentaform’s sustainable bioplastic design. While Apple may not opt for plastic, the MacBook Go’s projection feature sets a new bar for innovation in the realm of portable computing.
