Rumors have been rife for quite a long time that Apple will launch a 12-inch MacBook Air in ‘Space Grey' and ‘Gold' colours scheme. Reported have repeatedly estimated that Apple is planning to launch the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air sometime in mid-2015.
Well, here comes the update! As per the latest report by DigiTimes the 12-inch MacBook Air may finally hit stores next year. Reportedly, the production for the ulta-thin laptop will apparently kick-off in the first quarter of 2015 around the same time as the Apple Watch, according to anonymous upstream supply chain sources.
The folks at DigiTimes also claimed that the new MacBook Air will hold a premium price, and stock could be limited at launch. Please note that previously the same site claimed production for the device would begin in fall 2014, so this new rumor can be taken as a grain of salt. Then again, with Intel's new Core M currently available, Apple may finally be ready to launch its 12-inch laptop.
It is hard to predict Apple's next move though, but the Cupertino-based giant has always been unpredictable. If Apple does launch a MacBook Air soon, it could sport a Retina Display and pack Intel's latest chipset and razor-thin, fanless design with great battery backup.
Apple's current MacBook lineup comes in 11 and 13-inches. The cheapest 11-inch MacBook Air model in India starts upwards of Rs. 57,000.
