Citing information from sources within Apple, the website 9to5Mac has presented artist renderings of what it claims is the "radically new" 12-inch MacBook Air.
The new 12-inch MacBook Air will be relatively compact -- measuring slightly taller but around 6mm narrower than the current 11-inch MacBook Air, as the bezels have been reduced on all sides of the display. Another distinctive feature is an edge-to-edge keyboard, which calls to mind the one seen on the 12-inch PowerBook.
Finally, the new model is said to be the thinnest MacBook Air ever. To achieve a thickness of less than 0.67 inches (that of the current thinnest MacBook Air models), Apple has reportedly reduced the connectivity to a single standard USB port, one USB Type-C connector and one headphone jack.
Since 2014, persistent rumors in the tech world have suggested that a 12-inch MacBook Air will be released in spring 2015.
