Apple had a record Christmas quarter after crushing all expectations and setting a new world record for the most profitable quarter ever in the history of any company.

Help! I already can’t decide between the 12-inch MacBook Air and 12-inch iPad

Some hardcore Apple fans are surely excited about some of the rumored products that are supposed to launch later this year, including the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air and the 12-inch iPad Pro or iPad Air Plus the company is reportedly working on.

A new report has recently revealed more details about one of the most interesting products of the year, the rumored 12-inch MacBook Air that is expected to offer a super-slim design and lack a huge number of ports that laptop users have come to expect.
