New design 12-inch MacBook Air will become the standard for the entire line of Apple laptops




Yesterday, the network has a detailed description of the future model of MacBook Air . Scheduled for release in 2015, it will have a 12-inch display and be slimmer than any of the existing MacBook. Observers suggest that the new design will become the standard for all models of laptops Apple.


MacBook Air will get a radically new form factor. This is the first major update to the MacBook design of the release of MacBook Pro Retina in 2012. The car will be a 12-inch display, and the size of the device is much smaller 13-inch version of the laptop. In comparison with the 11-inch model, the novelty is slightly narrower, approximately 6 mm, and at the same time is slightly higher on the same 6 mm, to accommodate the display. To do this, the width of the frame around the screen will be reduced on all sides.

The redesign also touches the keyboard, touchpad and speakers. Touch-sensitive surface of the laptop will not support a mechanical press, as in the current model MacBook. Mechanical pressing will be removed in order to reduce the thickness of the shell. It will be smaller in comparison with the 11-inch MacBook Air.

The main dissatisfaction among users can call Apple’s decision to give up for the sake of portability from almost all interface connectors. They will be less than ever in laptops Apple – just one USB Type-C. This new type of connector, it is less in comparison with a standard USB, and full symmetry. Slots for memory cards and Thunderbolt port will not. There will be no corporate magnetic port for the charger MagSafe.

The decision is likely to turn into a number of problems for users who are accustomed to use in conjunction with the MacBook peripherals. People will have to purchase additional adapters and accessories. Most likely, along with the new MacBook Air will be docking station, through which it will be possible to extend the switching capabilities of your computer. In this case, users can not simultaneously charge the laptop and iPhone.


Apple has traditionally refuses technologies that are not considered promising. Since 2012 drives for reading optical discs for Mac were offered only as an option. In the latest models of computers SSDs pushed hard drives. Thus, the US consumer electronics giant pushes the audience to abandon the “rudimentary” developments. Probably, in the age of cloud services like iCloud Drive and technologies AirDrop and Handoff, in Cupertino have decided that the time has come to abandon the physical connection with each other.


Be that as it may, the design proposed in the new line of MacBook Air, is likely to inherit all models of portable laptops Apple. At the very least, such a method of introducing new technologies hold in the company. It is possible that in the coming years we will not see in portable computers on OS X is now the usual USB 3.0, Thunderbolt and MagSafe.
