Report: Apple’s new MacBook Air will have a single next-gen USB port

The keyboard could be “noticeably” changed, cramming the keys together to take up less area. There are also a few key changes — the power button, for instance, has moved to the left-hand upper corner, to the left of the escape key. The travel on the trackpad has also reportedly been removed in the interest of keeping the laptop slim.

One piece of information to take with a grain of salt: Apparently, the new MacBook Air will only come with only two ports — a headphone jack, and a single USB Type-C port. It’s hard to imagine a MacBook without a Thunderbolt connection or MagSafe charger, but the new USB specification supports driving displays as well as device charging.

hasn’t been touched in years and will not work with a machine with a single USB Type-C port.

Not sure this is a good thing. Thunderbolt connection and MagSafe charger are useful.
