Thinner, Cleaner, Faster: Apple’s Next Mac Could Be This Magical 12-Inch MacBook Air

The next MacBook Air?will sport a twelve-inch screen, a thinner and smaller physical footprint, a cleaner chaotic with one combined power connector and USB port, faster Broadwell chipsets from Intel, and it might even come in Space Grey.?That?s?the theory from Marc Gurman, and there?s?no immediate reason to discount it.

Sources within Apple, who have used internal prototype versions of the upcoming computer, have provided in-depth details about the machine, and our exclusive artist renditions of the revamped MacBook Air provide the first close look at Apple?s first major?step in mobile Mac computing since the?Retina MacBook Pro launch in 2012.

This new MacBook Air?will sport a twelve-inch screen,?be physically?smaller than the thirteen-inch MacBook Air, and could be?narrower than the current svelte eleven inch MacBook Air.?This will?be?accomplished by reducing the bezels around the screen and the keyboard, reducing the?size and pitch of the keys, and repositioning the speakers.
