According to a post found by MacRumors in chinese WeiPhone.com, supposedly from a user who has proven to be reliable in the past, Apple is soon to launch a new MacBook with 12-inch screen.
The information is still scarce, but apparently the machine would be as or more portable than the current MacBooks Air 11 and 13 inches, but as powerful as a MacBook Pro with a Retina display. It also supposedly wouldn't have a fan and would bring a new mechanism to its trackpad, without the click of a button.
A rumor about a new 12-inch MacBook was raised a while ago by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. His proposal would be to revolutionize the notebook offer once again, just as Apple did with the launch of the original MacBook Air and the MacBook Pro with Retina display.
Due to the characteristics of the machine, it is too early to say whether it would be a new version of the MacBook Air, the MacBook Pro or perhaps Apple would take advantage of such a change to simply call it ?MacBook? again.
