Apple's new 12-inch MacBook will appear in all online stores and some retail stores on May 25. This follows the trend of not enough MacBooks being available for displays across stores come the release date, akin to the Apple Watch.

Apple launched the MacBook on March 9, just days after the Mobile World Congress, confirming several rumours regarding an impending release. Apple went a yard further, announcing the new MacBook as the largest, yet lightest, the most energy efficient and the most advanced MacBook ever.
