Through aligning itself with the minimal aesthetic Apple has become so well known for over the years, their latest venture into deconstructive design reveals the specifications for a 12-inch MacBook Air. With an edge to edge keyboard and a design that is rumored to be twice as thin as the existing 11-inch model, it is set to launch before mid-2015.
With a bigger screen than its predecessor, the model has been designed to utilize as much space as the 11-inch MacBook Air through the implementation of more ergonomically designed features — including a smaller bezel around the screen. It is said that Apple is planning on removing almost all input and output ports, whilst leaving a single 3.5 mm audio jack and one USB-C connector, allowing all users to plug in multiple accessories and devices into a single port.
Although being confirmed by various sources, it is still widely unclear whether or not Apple will be going through with such a design — as much as it fits their creative direction. Betting on the selling point of extreme portability by removing certain I/O accessibility, the new design seems to be relying very much on the capability of a single, powerful USB-C port.
