9to5Mac Rumors a 12-Inch MacBook Air from Apple(▼)(▲)
January 6, 2015
Mark Gurman, writing for 9to5Mac:
Apple is preparing an all-new MacBook Air for 2015 with a radically new design that jettisons standards such as full-sized USB ports, MagSafe connectors, and SD card slots in favor of a markedly thinner and lighter body with a higher-resolution display.
This is a good looking machine. It's still only a rumor, but Mark Gurman's sources are historically pretty solid. As Gurman notes, the final product could easily change (perhaps to dial back the radical notion of replacing all USB, MagSafe, SD card, and Thunderbolt ports with a single USB type-C port), but the overall design should be similar to the specifications he gives. I'm eager to find out the tech specs and see what kind of power Apple can fit into something this slim.
