Rumored MacBook Air
Apple MacBook Air
What do you think of the MacBook Air rumors? Find out more about it here.
Various media reports are promoting 9to5Mac Marc Gurman’s theory that Apple is readying a widely redesigned MacBook Air lineup. I can find no official Apple announcement regarding planned MacBook Air changes, and that’s potentially a good thing. The rumored new MacBook Airs don’t look too business friendly.
If rumors are true, prepare for change
Gurman, a 9to5mac senior editor, believes the new lineup may forego port choices and display largess in favor of a thin profile and presumably portability. He suggests Apple is also going to eliminate the MagSafe connector.
This is all bad.

Maybe I’m becoming more resistant to change as I age. This past December, I purchased and have been using a 13.3″ MacBook Air. It’s highly portable and incredibly light. Battery life is awesome, and I’m happy with my plug options (two USB 3.0, one Thunderbolt, one MagSafe, and one SDXC card slot). The 13.3″ screen boasts 1440×900 pixel resolution, supporting millions of colors. Keys are elegantly backlit, full-size, and comfortably placed.
Even though the battery only powers the system up to 12 hours, at less than three pounds, the thing feels almost as if it will float away when it’s placed at an angle on a laptop desk on bumped on a horizontal surface. I don’t want my computer to be any smaller or lighter, nor do many business users who prize text readability and easy data entry using a proper keyboard.
