We might have to wait a bit longer for the rumored Retina MacBook Air. According to a new report from European site Letemsvetemappleem.eu, Apple is planning to introduce a “minor” update to the non-Retina line later this month on Tuesday, Feb. 24.
More than likely, that means the new machines will only offer increased storage, processing power, or a combination of both.
If this report is true, it could be later this year before the totally revamped MacBook Air hits the market.
Along with a Retina-class display, the mentioned redesigned version should be thinner and lighter than previous models. The keyboard could span the entire length of the machine, placing the keys closer together.
Interestingly, a report back in January said that Apple is planning to remove the standard USB ports, SD card slot, Thunderbolt port, and even MagSafe charger slot for only one new USB Type-C port.
Apple could also offer the machine in a number of colors like the iPhone and iPad.
First introduced in 2008, the MacBook Air has easily become the most popular and inexpensive Apple laptop. I’ve been patiently waiting, and saving, for the redesigned MacBook Air and its high-resolution screen. I suspect I’ll need to be patient.
