Apple launching 12-inch MacBook with iPhone colours in mid-2015?

Rumours claiming Apple will launch an ultra-thin 12-inch MacBook laptop have resurfaced, only this time with a colourful twist.

According to a report from the A Tech website, Apple will release the notebooks in the ‘Space Grey’ and ‘Gold’ colour schemes associated with the company’s iPhone smartphones – as well as the current silver colouring.

If the report is true, it would be the first time Apple has departed from silver laptops since its black and white efforts were phased out years ago.

According to A Tech, the company is planning on launching the devices in mid-2015, which is traditionally when the firm refreshes its existing lines of MacBook Pro and MacBook Air devices.

The MacRumors site believes the colour scheme rumour has some legs given its assertion that Apple has considered “special edition” colour options for the long-expected 12-inch MacBook.

The notebook, which could be a member of the MacBook Pro range rather than a MacBook Air would sit between the 11- and 13-inch options currently on the market.

Recent rumours have also suggested it’ll come packing the Retina Display and an Intel Broadwell processor. Other reports have claimed it’ll use the Intel Core M chip and possess a razor-thin, fanless design with great performance and battery life.

With a newly-tipped release date of mid-2015 release date, it looks like we might have to wait a while yet to truly know the score.
