macbook air 2013 3 800x270 640x216We have been hearing rumors that Apple could be preparing a 12-inch MacBook Air. In fact the rumors have suggested that the new laptops could go into production as soon as Q3 2014, but now thanks to a new rumor from Taiwan’s Economic Daily News, the 12-inch MacBook Air is not expected to begin shipping until late 2014.

In fact they go on to claim that it is possible that it could actually begin shipping as late as early 2015, so if you were thinking of getting your hands on it, you might have to wait a bit before you can get it, assuming the rumors are true. According to the publication, this is because of Intel’s Broadwell delays.

The 12-inch laptop had been rumored to use Intel’s 14-nanometer Broadwell chips, but apparently due to delays, the production of the 12-inch MacBook Airs have been delayed as well. According to the reports, the new Broadwell chipset is said to be key to the 12-inch MacBook Air’s rumored redesign.

The laptop is said to sport a redesigned chassis that will be even thinner than the other MacBook Airs, and could feature a redesigned trackpad that does not incorporate a mechanical button, and it could even feature a fanless design! In any case take it with a grain of salt for now, but hopefully more details will emerge at a later date.
