Consumers looking for an early glimpse at the shipping version of Apple's all-new 12-inch MacBook need wait no longer, as the Force Touch-packing ultraportable has found itself the subject of a pre-release unboxing video in Vietnam.

The nearly all-white packaging features a frontal glamour shot of the MacBook on the lid, with the name stamped in a familiar foil along the sides. Included in the box, according to, is the new 29-watt power brick, a 2-meter charging cable with USB type C connectors on each end, and Apple's traditional informational packet.

The company appears to have eschewed the longer power cord that it includes with its other laptops, though the power brick does feature interchangeable plugs. Also gone are the flip-up winding posts that have long adorned Apple's power bricks.

The charging cord itself appears somewhat thicker and stiffer than those attached to Apple's MagSafe connectors. The UCB type C plugs look like larger versions of the Ligtning plugs, with extruded ovular casings.

Apple is expected to open sales of the new MacBook on April 10. Available in silver, gold, or space gray, pricing starts at $1,299.
