Rumour: 15-inch MacBook Air coming in April
Could make the MacBook Pro feel fat and unloved
Apple is reportedly planning to introduce a 15-inch MacBook Air in April. This is not the first time we heard such rumours, but now a British blog claims to have gotten confirmation from major MacBook accessory maker.
The oversized Air is said to feature ports on both sides and like its smaller siblings it will not feature an optical drive. In addition, Apple apparently dropped the Ethernet port, too. We don’t think many users will shed tears over the loss.
It is hard to say what a 15-inch Air would do to MacBook Pro sales. There are probably quite a few consumers that will go for the thin and stylish Air rather than the Pro, but it is not the end of the road for MacBook Pros, at least not yet.
