Images Show Supposed 12-inch MacBook Air Display Unit

/ 3 years ago


New images apparently show the display unit to be used on the rumoured 12-inch MacBook Air. The unit looks markedly different from current Apple notebooks, as it features a solid, polished Apple logo, rather than an illuminated one – just like iPads.

The screen also features an edge-to-edge black cover on the screen, somewhat similar to iPads too. Essentially, this display looks like a first generation iPad, without the home button and an upside-down logo.


The device this display is supposed to be used on is a rumoured even thinner MacBook Air. The new notebook is said to be extraordinarily thin and, as recent rumours suggest, it is to feature only one port – a reversible USB port. If real, this design could prove polarising, taking the original simplified concept of the MacBook Air even further.

When Steve Jobs introduced the original MacBook Air at Macworld in 2008, many were surprised by its simple design – omitting the then standard DVD drive and using a very small number of I/O ports. This was taken even further in 2010, with the debut of the current design of MacBook Air, a design which has received critical acclaim, spawning a market of thin, drive-less ‘ultrabooks’.
