Last week, as a bolt from the blue came a report 9to5Mac a new, long-awaited 12-inch MacBook Air, has been controversial public. There are no precise data on price and release only the facts and images of the device. But now slowly beginning to emerge, and other information about the future of laptop Apple. In particular, Digitimes sure that the novelty will be available in the first quarter of this year, that is, within the next month and a half.

Their assumptions and information resource builds, based on data from component suppliers and sources within Quanta Computer, which will manufacture the 12-inch MacBook Air, as well as Apple Watch. Thus, the company plans to hire 30 thousand. New workers for their factories in the first quarter of this year that it is unusual for two reasons:

  • Too many new people;
  • All this is happening on the eve of Chinese New Year, and usually do not engage in the hiring company at a time.

On the other hand, Digitimes – this is not the most reliable source, so that his information should be treated with caution.

It is expected that the new MacBook Air, even with more modest than the 11-inch sibling dimensions will get larger 12-inch Retina-display, Intel last generation, which does not need active cooling system, and only one port USB Type-C. Last supposed to be used for everything, including charging laptop connected peripherals and transfer to an external display. Very bold decision, but it seems to me, this laptop still has a great future. [Digitimes]
