Hell of a scoop by Mark Gurman, if true. Numerous interesting changes, most especially the claim that it has just two ports: one for headphones and a lone USB Type-C port that will be used for everything from connecting an external display, power, and connecting peripherals. (I can totally see Apple dropping MagSafe, Thunderbolt, and USB 3 ports — but I don’t get why they would include only one USB Type-C port. Why not two?)
Another detail I like: the full-height keys for left and right arrow. Making those keys half-height never made sense to me.
Update: Conspicuously absent from Gurman’s report: the word “retina”.
