Laptop FAIL

Laptops come in all sizes, but there are a few things they probably shouldn't be used for, like selfies. Or, should you get the urge to tear apart an older laptop, a pizza box is not a smart alternative to use as a case. If you just so happen to be burning a candle, make sure it's far away from where you're sitting, or else "hole in display error" may occur.

You've seen the 12-inch MacBook Air spy shots, now check out a few renders by the very talented Martin Hajek of the laptop in all three colors: champagne gold, slate gray, and silver. While new information has been sparse, it's most likely that this ultra slim laptop will have only a single USB-C port, along with a headphone jack. There are rumors that Apple may offer a 16GB RAM option and / or a Retina Display, but we'll probably have to wait until WWDC in June to see if any of those are true. Let's just hope there isn't a waiting list for the gold model, like there was for Apple's iPhone 6 / 6 Plus at launch. Click here to view the first image in this week's WINS gallery.

Marc Gurman of 9to5 Mac gives us a first look at the redesigned 12-inch MacBook Air, which is reportedly to have only one port.

There are also rumors that the 12" will come in both slate gray and silver, but no pricing or technical specifications have yet been announced.
