New MacBook Air accidentally leaked on 60 minutes? (Update)

Apple was featured in an episode of 60 Minutes last night that, among other things, also discussed Jony Ive’s secret design studio. A report from Business Insider suggests Apple made a rare slip-up and accidentally (or was it purposefully?) allowed the filming of a new and yet-unreleased or announced MacBook Air.

The image above seems to show a laptop we haven’t seen before. Maybe it’s the rumored 15-inch MacBook Air with a Retina display, since it looks bigger than a regular MacBook. It almost appears similar in design to something like a Surface Pro – at least in terms of aspect ratios. Still, it probably isn’t a new laptop.

It just doesn’t seem very much like Apple to put an unannounced product out in the open on purpose. The bezels might look thin and the screen a bit more rectangular and wide, but I think it’s because we’re looking at the product from a weird angle. As Business Insider proposes, I do agree it might be a prototype of the current MacBook or some sort of other design dummy.

As a refresher, here’s what the MacBook looks like:

That’s not to say we don’t expect a new MacBook Air – we do – we just don’t think it was leaked on 60 Minutes. See for yourself at 3:10 in the video below.

Update: Apple has since confirmed to TechInsider it is indeed a space gray MacBook, as we suspected.
