12-inch MacBook Air gets rendered in 3D mockup gallery

Our favorite rendering artist, Martin Hajek, has created a gorgeous batch of renderings based on the mockups and information from 9to5Mac’s scoop regarding Apple’s rumored one-port 12-inch Air.

As revealed by 9to5Mac based on the publication’s initial report, the 12-inch MacBook Air is rumored to feature an enhanced trackpad, an overall thinner and lighter design, and a slightly tweaked keyboard as well. What’s more, the device is said to drop the Thunderbolt port as well, with a focus on just a single port moving forward that will use reversible USB Type-C.

The gallery, which was put together by Martin Hajek, shows a slate of new 12-inch MacBook Airs, showcasing what a black model would look like, and even what a GOLD MacBook Air with a white keyboard would look like in the real world. The mockups are impressive to look at, and certainly worthwhile in an attempt to guess what Apple has coming down the pipe.

It’s Hajek’s take on a recent rumor out of Taiwan calling for switching to laser cutting and advanced embedded technologies to make the logo emblazoned on all of Apple’s 2015 products 3D-like and shine at the edges.

If 9to5Mac’s sources are to be trusted, the forthcoming machine should be a radical departure from existing design. In addition to narrower and thinner appearance, the new Air is said to sport an edge-to-edge keyboard with the reduced overall footprint of the individual keys.

There are four new speaker grilles doubling as ventilation ports but most importantly, the notebook is thought to incorporate a single USB 3.1 Type-C port that should replace the previous USB ports, Lightning, MagSafe and an SD card slot.
